Mjölk Release New Online Store

Our good friends John and Juli Baker of Toronto based store Mjölk have just released their new web shop over the weekend. It’s been a place that I’ve checked on a weekly basis for a number of years but over the past few months there has been little to no movement from them online, this is partly because the’ve been renovating a house, I know this through their great personal blog Kitka, and also because of the new design of their online …

Lacquered Paper-Objects by Nendo

The talented individuals at Japanese design studio Nendo were kind enough to send me these photos of this wonderful new project that they’ve undertaken titled “Lacquered Paper-Objects”.

Mjolk Canada, Product Shots

It’s not the first time that I’ve mentioned Mjolk here on the website and their beautiful little shop in Toronto, Canada. Since I’ve never really had a chance to showcase any of their design orientated products I thought it would be a perfect chance for me to get hold of some imagery and showcase it on here for all of you to admire. I’m always blown away by the items that they pick up and the different designers in which they …
