João Canziani Photographs the Family Home of Architect Ray Kappe

Rummaging through the internet late last night I found myself admiring the work of two creatives in one project, the first being Californian architect Ray Kappe and the second photographer Joao Canziani. I actually found this wonderful set that explores the family home of Ray Kappe sitting within the arcives over at Dwell, which as always is the perfect stop for any design …

So it’s hardly surprising when browsing through his website that I found a project of his that I wanted to add to our archive, as his Gipsy house which we’re showcasing …

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 …

Joseph Foglia Designs Studio

I came across this terrific design studio named Joseph Foglia Designs that offers a wide array of design and construction solutions, mainly focusing on commercial and residential renovations within New York City. From what I picked up their work is based around the overall concept, the fabrication and the final implementation of an environment or space. Basically from start to finish a lot of the time. What can I say really, amazing photo …

Objects of Empathy by Miya Kondo

A little while back I consciously decided to take my foot off the gas on the ceramics front, in view of keeping our content diverse. However the craft element of pottery has continued to inspire me daily, especially some particular pieces which embody the design ethos often found in Scandinavia and Japan, this being less design evoking more substance. Many of you will know that German designer Dieter Rams has been a big inspi …

Finding Home Film by Muuto

So this short filmed piece from Nordic design firm Muuto is perhaps a little more lighthearted than traditionally shared here on the site, but thats not without noting the beautiful design at the core of this creative project. I actually really enjoyed this piece as their team got inventive with how they could showcase their collection of furniture and other home based products, I’ve not seen anything like this used before …

North Cascade Mountain House by Finne Architects

Browsing around today I stumbled across this idyllic home which can be found hiding away in the beautiful mountains of the North Cascades, situated in the Canadian province of British Columbia. I’ve recently been reading a little into the architectural phrase genius loci which is the idea that all landscape designs should be adapted to the context in which they are …

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 Sculptor Richard Serra

Over the Christmas period I came across the work of Richard Serra through an insightful book that follows his achievements over the past forty years. So I thought we’d mark this new found interest in his creations with a follow up post here on the site as some of his works are really quite astounding. For those that haven’t come across the American artist and sculptor before Richard focuses around a very minimal yet industrial …

Yoko Ozawa Pottery

Some quirky ceramics by Melbourne based potter Yoko Ozawa. Born in Japan, Yoko caught my attention with her simplistic yet rustic style that revolves around function, each piece is quite different in it’s own little way. Rough edges here and there all add to the overall aesthetic, superb stuff if you ask me. Take the white salad bowl for example with the swirly detailing inside, also the tea pot which is pretty much stripped down …
