Interior Spaces by Kouichi Kimura Architects

I’m often stumped when it comes to architectural websites, usually the photography’s not quite there in terms of size or quality, which means I can’t showcase it on the blog (my standards are pretty high). Last week I decided to start a Pinterest of our own, follow us here if you’re on Pinterest yourself, with my sole intention being to create a mood-board type set-up for the website. This would give me an ideal place to group photos from …

Architecture by Alberto Campo Baeza

Today I found some much needed architecture inspiration, it’s been a little while and I’ve been that way inclined for some time. In fact, as I’m not a trained architect myself I often learn things through general research, films, and other informative material on the subject. My bookshelf is stacked full of publications on famous architects and architecture, from the likes of Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto, even a newer generation like Norman …

Ceramic Works by Jennifer Lee

Pottery has been quite high on my agenda recently, I’ve been slowly creeping back in to the workshop so it seems like a great time to go searching around for inspiration. One thing I’ve found myself doing is looking at my home country for possible independents and creatives that might have the same sort of aesthetic as myself, not in any particular field but just as a generic thing. Interestingly, I’ve come across lots of individ …

Design in the Jacques Dupuis Archive

At the moment I feel like I have inspiration flowing at me from all different angles, one website that sums up this feeling nicely is that of Jacques Dupuis. Mr Dupuis was a Belgian architect who happened to be quite a major figure in the countries design and architecture scene, following mainly modernist ideals in the 1950’s. Although his architecture was, and still is, very well-known, like most designers of the time he didn’t just stay …

Series of Modernist Sculptures

It’s not often I put together this type of post featuring a selection of creatives in one go, but I thought I’d break my own mould today after searching around a number of fantastic online archives. Sharing the video of modernist architect Josep Lluis yesterday relit my own interest in the era and I felt compelled to delve a little deeper and highlight any works that caught my eye today. I’m not by any means saying these particular …

Documentary on Architect Josep Lluis Sert

I felt it was about time architecture joined our creative content this week, so I went on the hunt earlier this morning to find either a recent build or a short film that would provoke a little food for thought on the subject. I’d not intentionally headed out with the modernist era in mind but once again I found myself marvelling at the talents of an individual creating in this period, someone we’ve not highlighted here before which is a bit of …

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 …

Assorted Imagery from Fujiwaramuro Architects

I thought I’d lighten up the mood after a busy holiday period, bringing with me a concise selection of imagery from Fujiwaramuro architects who’re based out of Osaka. My little jibe with Japan continues as I’ve been coming across a variety of inspiration from that part of the world, the consistent ideology that seems to influence Japanese designers and craftsman alike is very …

Short Film on Sculptor Richard Serra

You might have noticed the blog going a little quiet over the past few days, I just want to come through and apologise on that front. I hadn’t come across a project that has really gripped or enticed me, and we feel compelled to try and offer something insightful here when we do post. Which is why I’ve waited and thankfully found this short film on sculptor Richard Serra as he graces new ground in his work, erecting his first sculpture in South …

Interiors and Furniture at sdr+ (System Furniture Dieter Rams)

It’s always been a dream of mine to own the 606 shelving system by Dieter Rams, so today’s post is partly about that, although I covered my fascination with it more extensively in a previous post, but also because some recent news has come about. Vitsoe have just announced that as of 1 January 2013 they will become the exclusive licensee of Dieter Rams’s complete collection of original …
