“Hang-It-All” Coat Rack by Charles and Ray Eames

The “Hang-it-all” coat rack by Charles and Ray Eames is in my eyes a genius piece of design. For one it’s playful and lighthearted, and two it serves it’s function well, to hang coats, hats and garments. But there’s a bigger concept and philosophy at play, these simple hooks and brightly-coloured wooden spheres were aimed at encouraging children to hang up all of their …

Selection of furniture from Finn Juhl

In a bid to keep my mind off the shop for a moment, I went on a search for a little design inspiration this morning and ended up visiting the work of the late, great Danish designer Finn Juhl. Finn was known as an architect, industrial and interior designer as well as a master of furniture. As one of the leading figures that helped to define what Danish design is to us all today, it is both his vision and multifaceted career that we …

As I started to delve into the …

Richard Neutra Rang House Photographed by Iwan Baan

Richard Neutra has become quite the favourite of mine. He’s known for his clean lines, particularly in California where he came celebrated for his geometric but open structures. I think this inspiration came from his tutor in the early days, another inspiring figure, Adolf Loos who was known to have a radical, innovative outlook on life. He had a deep admiration for classical tradition and …

Case Study Imagery by Vitra Design

This morning I enjoyed having a browse through the Vitra website which always showcases some great furniture, I think they’re one of the better websites to have a look at and they seem to take great care over their web presence. Obviously inspiration isn’t always readily available on these more corporate sites due to the fact that they keep their photography shot in a professional studio with a white background, not …

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.

Luckily it comes with a great story, such as this post which is …
