Porcelain Creations by Nathalie Derouet

A set of astonishing creations by French artist Nathalie Dérouet. I’m not one to bring across many artistic works, as I’m quite a functional individual and don’t admire a gallery setting for a number of reasons, but often I find myself taking inspiration from forms in this category (even if it be from a distance). These porcelain pieces are exceptional and quite architectural, smooth exteriors like walls, reminding me of the surfaces that some of …

Mixed Architectural Imagery by Artechnic

I always have mixed feelings towards architecture, especially when I put together an article here on the site. It’s hard to come across works that really entice me and usually the ones that do have already been written about. Another problem is the ‘new modern’ trend that seems to be spreading across the richer parts of the world, particularly in the cities that are expanding such as Shanghai and Tokyo. I like it when architects build humble …

Seating, Lighting and Storage Inspiration at Augustus Greaves

Some cracking inspiration that I found on my travels today, this time a bit more local to us at Augustus Greaves, based between Oxford and London. They specialise in selling pieces of design, whether it’s objects such as vases or lights, or furniture and tables, I decided to pick up a selection from their website today for all of you to admire. I have to admit it’s been a little while since I’ve …

Views of the Jean Prouvé Exhibition at Jousse Entreprise

Our good friends at WO AND WÉ, a site that I’ve admired for quite a while now, put me onto this Jean Prouvé exhibiton that started last month at Jousse Entreprise, a gallery in Paris that showcases a range of well-known designers like Le Corbusier, Serge Mouille, and Alexandre Noll. Most of which we’ve covered here in the past. I’m not one for copying over content and we and …

Selection of Work from AABE Architects

Yesterday we visited an architect from the past in the short film of Russel Wright’s home, so today I thought we’d highlight the work of someone a little more present with a collection of work from Belgium based collective AABE Architects. Coming across their portfolio yesterday I was taken back by their sleek minimal style which has quite a classic feel to it, less is certainly more on this evidence and they’ve got the balance of substance and mini …

Starling Chair by Cameron Foggo

This is my second post on an item of furniture this week, hopefully we won’t go five days straight with a chair everyday, although if we have seating options like this I won’t be complaining and hopefully you won’t either. The chair that I’ve picked out today is titled the Starling Chair and has been designed by Cameron Foggo, a second-generation furniture designer. He joined his by Cameron Foggo, a second-generation furniture …

Chapelle Notre Dame du Haut by Le Corbusier

Exterior shots of the Chapelle Notre Dame du Haut taken by Paul Koslowski for Foundation Le Corbusier in 1997. Through my own research on Tadao Ando it’s been interesting to see the link between his concrete structures and Le Corbusier’s buildings and architecture. It all made sense when I saw this chapel as it linked a lot of the elements that Tadao uses in his buildings, it also seems ironic how he has undertaken a lot of chapel …
