Langen Foundation by Tadao Ando

There are some fascinating connections between different projects that have made it up on the site, I often look back at older articles in each category and notice little details that link them all together. Strangely enough my taste has stayed quite consistent over the years and, although I know it will mature and develop, I can’t see it changing too much in the future. One designer that I’ve mentioned many times over the last few years …

Le Corbusier’s Cité Radieuse into MAMO by Ora Ito

Sometimes when I come across news and updates from the design world I’m disheartened by the way they’re put together, in no way do we get the full story, often we’re left wondering what the article was actually about.

MOLD ALL Exhibition at Tortoise, Glassware by PP Blower

After watching a fantastic short documentary titled ‘GLAS’ yesterday, directed by Bert Haanstra in the 50?s, I had the inspiration to write about some glassware that I’d come across late last week. If you’ve yet to watch the piece, it’s definitely a must for any creative, or anyone who’s a fan of mesmerising production type films. The video is about the glass industry in the Netherlands, it …

Porcelain Tableware and Wall Installations by Basma Osama

Recently, I have been considering the world of ceramics in terms of inspiration and as a personal pursuit. Being a purist, the beauty of materials in their raw, or near-raw state, is highly appealing. The endless amount of clay bodies, each with their individual characteristics, naturally lend themselves to the appreciation of materials. Porcelain, mostly comprised of kaolin, holds a special place in my …
