Fray Leon House by 57 Studio Architects

I thought I’d begin the week with a slice of architecture as I’ve not come across too much myself since thursday’s film with the one and only Jen’s Risom. Today I’ve opted for more of a recent build with this contemporary design from Chile, created by architectural firm 57 Studio. I felt what really made Jens’ home was the careful selection of interesting objects around the home within quite an understated and simplistic house design …

Atrium House by BFS Design

I thought I’d come through with a little architecture for you all today as a means to balance up what we’ve got lined up already on the platform from the past few days. I’m sure many of you don’t even give this a second thought but we are often weighing up what to bring in next and whether we are too one sided to a particular subject or topic. What’s great about the areas we do speak upon is that they all intertwine, I like to think we offset …

Preserving the Authenticity of the Eames Furniture by Eames Demetrios

Although we’ve mainly been discovering craftsman and artists lately we’re definitely not looking past the fact that we enjoy various designers who have designed items that are currently being mass produced. In fact, my office bookshelf is littered with hoards of books from the likes of Jasper Morrison, Naoto Fukasawa, and the older generation like Aalto and Eames, the latter we’ll …

Wright Auction House, Furniture by Alvar Aalto

Previously I put together a post on Børge Mogensen and his furniture, in-particular the pieces that have been showed at the Wright auction house based in Chicago, Illinois. This article follows the same line today but on a different creative, this time Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto. I’ve had a whale of a time over the last few months just drifting back and forward from the Wright website where they beautifully present these master …

Collection of Works from Regis Brodie

I thought I’d stick with craft again after sharing wood turner Jonathan Leech with you all last time around. Today I was impressed with the multifaceted nature of creative Regis Brodie’s work, so I’ve brought across a selection as a nod of appreciation to the Pittsburgh based artist, potter, sculptor and professional speaker. As you can see from what we have here Regis likes to take quite an expressive approach to a clean cut form, be it …

A Look at the Latest Work from Poteet Architects

I’ve been keeping an eye out for a little architecture recently but until now I’ve yet to find anything that really stood out to me. So when I was browsing through our own backlog of posts I found a few leads and I came across this great selection of work from Poteet Architects who are based out of San Antonio, Texas. Last time we spoke upon Jim Poteet’s brainchild it was more focused around a single project whereas this …

Estate in Extremadura by Abaton Architect Firm

Sometimes some of the most innovative designs are hidden away in places that you’d never imagine would harness such wonderful consideration for creating, like this abandoned stables found in the west of Cáceres which has been rejuvenated by Spanish architectural firm Abaton. I’ve not come across their work before but I was really impressed with their ability to combine lots of quaint rustic elements into a modern and contemp …
