Feature with Chicago Based Woodworker Jason Lewis

It’s been a long time coming, a new interview has finally blessed our feature section! This time featuring Chicago based furniture maker and designer Jason Lewis. Jason and I have been meaning to put something together for a while, but both of our schedules clashed, so it took us some time going back and forth, but I’m really pleased with what has come of it. Good things happen to …

Hans J. Wegner Short Films by BlackBird for Carl Hansen & Son

Next week I think I’ll get myself down to The Midcentury Show taking place at Lords in London. It wil be my first time but I’m looking forward to seeing some nice furniture and other goods up-close, preferably the classics that have aged well and have stayed modern over the years. To me it’s always more interesting to see the older models rather than newer models, although manufacture …

Vang Chair by Norwegian Designer Andreas Engesvik

I know I’m running the risk of turning this blog into a bit of a furniture fest, wasn’t my intention, but since I’ve started a little chair project of my own it seems to be ironic that I’d run across works of this nature. I become like a human magnet. Originally I thought it would be hard to find forms that might intrigue me, but just like this website I’ve had no problems inspiring myself and there’s an abundance of …

Nakamura Kobo Atelier by TED x Tohoku

We’ve not featured projects involving fabrics here for a while, probably because we’ve not come across anything incredible, maybe also because we’ve tried to step back from this world to set ourselves apart. My passion revolves around the reduction in design down to its purest form, and this specific piece kicked out some thoughts on making as a process and how it’s developed over time. With the modern age that we live in it’s hard to …

Furniture from Carl Hansen & Son

I’m always fascinated how our content tends to develop trends unintentionally, one post on a particular topic often leads to succession in this area without us even realising. So after yesterday’s delve into the portfolio of Italian furniture designer Marco Guazzini I’ve been revisiting and enjoying what Carl Hansen & Son have going on over on their respective website, which for those who haven’t visited before highlights a selection …

Leslie Williamson Photographs Constantin Brancusi’s Atelier

I better insert a spoiler alert before we begin today as I’ve once again raided the blog of photographer Leslie Williamson as she puts together the second edition of her handcrafted modern book. Now I really hope I’m not revealing too much that is to reach the final publication, I’m assuming these are really great outakes that Leslie has decided to tease us all with online. With every new …

The Two Brothers, Erling and Egon Petersen

I went on a small furniture jaunt last night, checking out multiple design forums and blogs to see if I could find any new designers or interesting creatives. Usually I get a bit stuck because the internet doesn’t tend to document the more obscure individuals, they’re usually from Denmark or Sweden but it’s hard to find information on them and their work. A few times I’ve heard some designers names that have been placed on the …

CH33 Chair Designed by Hans J Wegner

Last night I thought I’d revisit the Carl Hansen & Son website after I was researching the life and works of Hans J Wegner, a master designer in my mind. All of his furniture is highly inspiring and I love to see the background and context behind each object. Although I’d like to see more of this online, it would inspire me immensely, it’s actually quite rare to find imagery and information regarding the process and production of furniture pieces …

Short Film on “The Chair” by PP Mobler

I’ve been sitting on this project for a while now so I have apologise somewhat, as I’m sure many of you are eager to see PP Mobler putting together Hans J Wegner’s design of “The Chair”. I’ve been debating with myself whether the film quality was on a par with everything else we’ve previously shared here, but in all honesty I think this project is worthy of being an exception to the rule, as we have a bit of a soft spot for this designer here. As you will soon …

Architecture and Interiors by Takuro Yamamoto

Over the weekend I stumbled across the website of architecture firm Takuro Yamamoto who design beautiful buildings and also wonderful concepts. They focus on creating buildings that will stand the test of time, not wanting to be pinned down to a specific era or time-state. What I thought was interesting as well is how the firm want to be “classless” in terms of social class, they want …

Imagery of Hans J. Wegner & his creations

Not too long ago Mark brought across some really beautiful looks at the work of internationally celebrated Dane Hans J Wegner, so I thought it would be a little while yet until we’d be visiting his work again. However I was browsing through a few of my favourite destinations on the web earlier and came across these charming photos that I hadn’t seen shared elsewhere, so I couldn’t resist snapping them up. They basically …

Hans J. Wegner, Danish Furniture Designer

Well this is what I like to find, a website full of inspiring imagery by one of my favourite furniture designers Hans J. Wegner. Hans was born in 1914 in Tønder, Denmark and was the son of a shoemaker originally starting out as an apprentice cabinetmaker before working as an architect in 1938. At a young age Wegner collaborated with Danish architect and designer Arne Jacbosen, an individual who we will …
