Recent Photography by Cody Cobb

Since it’s the start of a new year I thought I’d bring through a familiar face, someone who we’ve visited many times before, not only in the last year but in several years previously. In fact Cody Cobb, the photographer in question, is perhaps my most revisited individual that I’ve shared on the blog. Evidently I have a real soft spot for his work which consists of an investigative and refreshing approach to travel photography, he seeks to find …

Mixed Architectural Imagery by Artechnic

I always have mixed feelings towards architecture, especially when I put together an article here on the site. It’s hard to come across works that really entice me and usually the ones that do have already been written about. Another problem is the ‘new modern’ trend that seems to be spreading across the richer parts of the world, particularly in the cities that are expanding such as Shanghai and Tokyo. I like it when architects build humble …

Brooklyn Makers by Jennifer Causey

I thought it was about time we returned to the talented Jennifer Causey now as a means of promotion for the fantastic little book she’s been curating in Brooklyn which celebrates the districts creativity and independent community. For a while now I’ve been watching from afar as she’s added a taster of each individuals work she’s visited and we’ve even featured a few here ourselves in our daily content. What’s great about the book is …

Ceramic Sculptures by Claire Muckian

The past few weeks have seen a mini influx of ceramic work into the shop, with some remarkable creations from both Japan and here in Europe. Perhaps this has taken the edge off work we’ve been coming across for the blog as I haven’t noted too many functional wares that have really stopped me in my tracks. One creative that does work with ceramics caught my attention today however and her name is Claire Muckian who’s based in …

Lauri Kranz Series by Brian W Ferry

It’s rather grey in our part of England today, so I’ve been on the hunt for a little sun rich greenery to remind me of the warmer days to come. I’m definitely not an embracer of winter so I’m a fan of letting my imagination wander, pretending that the cold weather isn’t here. It looks glorious in Los Angles where Brian Ferry recently captured this photo series of Lauri Kranz, being the perfect distraction from the good old English weather …

Plywood Furniture in the Marcel Breuer Archive

Mr Breuer isn’t exactly a stranger to our archive, these modernist designers always seem to crop up again and again with their classic timeless designs, ones that I’m extremely envious of. Take for example these plywood furniture pieces by Marcel sourced from his ever growing digital archive, it’s a fantastic place to pick up inspiration and general tips and tricks in terms of drawing and idea generation. Very informative and great for all …

Craven Road Studio by Shim-Sutcliffe Architects

I’ve literally gone around the houses today, as I searched for a dash of architecture that would remind us the value of great design. I found myself quickly fascinated by the work of Toronto based partners Shim-Sutcliffe who have created a great number of mesmerising, highly functional, sleek dwellings over the years. I was became in awe of two projects in particular that I was hoping …

Imagery from Converted into Houses by Charles Fracchia and Jeremiah O. Bragstad

I’m currently undertaking a bit of decorating and furnishing at home, so in recent days I’ve been taking a browse around to see what I can conjure up in terms of inspiration and ideas to give the house an air of individualism. I found myself revisiting the comprehensive curation of a bohemian style that is Charles Fracchias and Jeremiah O. Bragstad’s book “Converted …

Residential Series from The Andrew Geller Architectural Archive

We like unconventional thinkers here, the ones who think differently, who see possibility and disregard limitation. Mid-century architect Andrew Michael Geller fits snugly into this bracket with his experimental approach to architecture, having helped shape what we perceive mid-century modern architecture to be today. I’ve been lucky enough to get in contact with his Grandson Jake Gorst who …

Imagery from Alison Berger Glassworks

I thought I’d bring a little craft into the fold today as we’ve both been pursuing our own creative projects recently and I was hugely inspired by the work of Alison Berger and the skill she has developed in making handblown glass. Based in Los Angles, Alison’s professional background was initially in architecture having worked for Bausman-Gill associates and the Frank O. Gehry studio for a number of years before eventually focusing on …

Pescher House by Richard Neutra

I’ve just noticed that this week the blog has become a bit of a graveyard, with Max Lamb and Aaron Rose the only souls amongst our content still living. I’d just like to confirm we don’t have any prejudice against those breathing, it’s just a coincidence that this has transpired. Saying this I’m not going to be bucking the week’s trend just yet as I stumbled upon this delightful house in Wuppertal, Germany that I couldn’t help but …
