CALDER | PROUVÉ at Galerie Patrick Seguin

The good folks at Patrick Seguin recently released some imagery from their latest exhibition that started on Saturday titled ‘CALDER | PROUVÉ’, which will run until November 2nd, 2013. Sculptors haven’t really featured here that often, but when I do pick one out they always bring something unique and different to the table. One artist that has been on the blog in the past is Alexander Calder, and my office is littered with books revolving around the …

Ceramic Works by Asche Yamamoto of Studio atelier-H

Last week I was trying to find some content relating to the sculpture/ceramic field, as I’d been looking at the works of Georges Jouve, who I don’t believe we’ve covered here before. If you’re not familiar with Mr Jouve you should take a short trip to this MONDOBLOGO article that showcases a brilliant selection of imagery to give you a better idea. Basically, Georges Jouve is known as being …

Views of the Jean Prouvé Exhibition at Jousse Entreprise

Our good friends at WO AND WÉ, a site that I’ve admired for quite a while now, put me onto this Jean Prouvé exhibiton that started last month at Jousse Entreprise, a gallery in Paris that showcases a range of well-known designers like Le Corbusier, Serge Mouille, and Alexandre Noll. Most of which we’ve covered here in the past. I’m not one for copying over content and we and …

Creekside Residence by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

It’s pretty rare for me to get completely blown away by modern architecture, it’s often the likes of Richard Neutra, Philip Johnson, and Frank Lloyd Wright that are the go to for a little architectural inspiration, but this home built only five years back by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson stopped me dead in my tracks this morning, it’s incredible. For the mid-century modern enthusiast this house is about …

Design Auction, Phillips de Pury

It’s really great when you come across a selection of objects that have been designed by some great individuals, not only that but they’ve been taken professionally by a proper photographer in a nice setting. You’ll be surprised how frustrating it can be when the images are too small or of bad quality to showcase, in my opinion a lot of these objects need to be documented so the younger generation of designers can learn from them. Naturally the …

Hallo Work Light by 45KILO Designs

I’m finding quite regularly now that I go searching for one particular medium and end up finding an alternative that catches my interest instead. This happened earlier when I went about searching for an architectural project, I landed upon the page of Philipp Schopfer and Daniel Klapsing who are two designers responsible for the 45 Kilo design studio, with their latest creation the “Hallo” series really resonating with me. What I love about this …

Jean Prouvé Architecture, Prefabricated and Dismantable Houses

As you may know already I’ve showcased various bits of imagery over the year from gallery Patrick Seguin, which happens to be one of my favourite “go to” places at the moment. Patrick is actually quite a prominent figure of the 20th century design world who helped promote various famous creatives such as the brilliant Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier, and the man who we’ll …

The Nuage Family for Cassina by Charlotte Perriand

After Daniel’s intriguing post yesterday on designer Greta Magnusson Grossman, I thought I’d bring another one into the mix in the form of Charlotte Perriand. This lovely lady was the figure behind a lot of Le Corbusier’s works and was a big collaborator with Jean Prouvé throughout her career. I’ve actually put together a post previously on Charlotte Perriand and her life but today I’m …

Exploring the Life and Works of Charlotte Perriand

Console by Charlotte Perriand, 1958. Metal and Laminated Wood Top. Today I thought I’d bring across some of my favourite pieces designed by french creative Charlotte Perriand, this also gives me a chance to dig up some information on her life and how she became one of the most important furniture designers of the mid 20th century. Charlotte in my eyes doesn’t get the credit she …

A Mixture of Furniture Works by Jean Prouvé

Last night I went on a bit of a knowledge jaunt and sent myself back in time to find out about previous designers, philosophers and thinkers, something I’ve found myself doing more and more of over the past year. My library of design books is slowly reaching the realms of uncontrollable, but I can’t bare to part with them as they offer an abundance of inspiration on a regular basis. One book I’ve yet to acquire is about …
