Selected works from Marc Corbiau

Mark presented some architectural inspiration yesterday so I thought I’d continue this trend today as we visit the wonderful work of Marc Corbiau and his architect firm who are responsible for these creations seen here before us. Within this selection of seven photos we have three exterior and four interior looks with each harnessing a clean cut minimal aesthetic within an open plan and spacious environment. For …

Maison Louis Carré by Alvar Aalto

Today I thought I’d bring over this imagery that I found last night thanks to my random perusing, it always leads me into good spots around the web. Usually I start with a designer of some sort, this time Alvar Aalto, and I head out with the intention to learn something new and end up finding an abundance of great imagery that I can showcase here as well. Luckily it comes with a great story, such as this post which is …

Short Film on Architect Robert Madison

I stumbled across the story of gentleman and architect Robert Madison a little while ago now and I’ve been waiting for a rainy day to bring it into our archive for us all to consume and learn from. Today is that day so I guess I shall begin by explaining that Robert is an influential Mentor, Patron of Arts and Pioneering Architect who was presented with the Cleveland Arts Prize as a Special Citation for Distinguished Service …

Architecture + Influence : A Short Film on the Work of Philip Johnson

For what seems like months I’ve been itching to bring forward the work of influential American architect Philip Johnson, however I wanted to both present a project that did his work justice and secondly share something that hadn’t been seen or spoken about already. So late last night as I was dwindling down my time before bed I decided to check for any developments online and …

Alvar Aalto Vases

I’ve become quite spontaneous with my posts here on the site, I used to use this space as a place to showcase random bits and bobs with no direct meaning but as time’s passed my taste has become much for refined and the direction of this website has become a lot clearer. I guess I want to offer something different to everything else out there and to ultimately have our own flavour and taste. Something I think …

Admiring the Work of Architect Frank Lloyd Wright

As time goes by working here on the site it’s seems that a trend is starting to appear where I’m referencing less and less creatives from the present and more from the past. Barbara Hepworth was perhaps the most notable individual recently given the fact that she passed in 1975, so today I’m going to continue this running theme once more as we delve into the history of inspiring American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. I think what …

Admiring the work of Lake Flato Architect Studio

I think when you love everyday design like we do, it’s inevitable that you’re going to fall for architecture in a big way. Much like all the other elements we share here on the site, architecture provides a big dose of inspiration for us on a daily basis. Particularly in the morning when I tend to browse around for some breathtaking homes like these ones from Lake Flato, all of which motivate me to work hard so one day I can …

Inside the Eames House

After much thought and deliberation I decided to do a small post on the Eames house, also known as Case Study House No. 8 since it was an experiment in American residential architecture sponsored by the Arts & Architecture magazine. They commissioned major architects of the day, such as Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen and Richard Neutra to design and build inexpensive and efficient model homes for the Unit …

Eames: The Architect and The Painter

This short trailer, which can be watched below, is just the beginning of what’s going to be a very successful film on American designers Charles and Ray Eames. The piece is titled ‘Eames: The Architect and The Painter’ which provides us with a candid view of the inner lives of the two great artists as they helped share their innovation with the world. It’s probably the nearest that we’ve ever got to behind the scenes and looks …
