One of a Kind Ceramics by Atelier Stella

As you all know I’m a bit of a functionalist at heart, but I’m always intrigued when designers give their work that added touch of personality and character. Take for example these amazing ceramics by Stella Baggott, who makes these pieces under the alias Atelier Stella in London, England. It’s great to see someone local to us producing items like this on a regular basis, even if Stella only makes them when she gets time away from her other creative …

Hand Blown Glassware by Sempli Design

How about we add some superb glass tumblers and vessels into the mix today. I’m a big admirer of functional items that serve a humble purpose in day to day life, often the ones we take for granted and that slip in to the back of our mind without a second thought. These tumblers by Sempli remind me of this exact scenario, and surprisingly they haven’t gone unnoticed in this day and age where we tend to favour flamboyancy and egotism. You’ll see …

Chocolate with Hazelnuts from Homegrown Swedes

December is a great time of year for fellow foodies isn’t it?! The cold weather draws us all around the table to consume a selection of heartwarming food. It’s not often that this topic reaches our blog, aside from the odd kinfolk inclusion here and there, but since Christmas is nearing I thought I’d mix things up a little and get into the seasonal spirit. Although Sanna Liedgren hasn’t reached our archive …

Archipelago House by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

I’ve been on the hunt for a bit of architecture, I think Mike Dorsey’s project brought Mr Neutra to the forefront of my mind again, I really can’t wait to see his finished documentary. Of course I could highlight another of Neutra’s beautiful designs today but I thought I’d see if any more contemporary constructions entered into this school of thought, and luckily I came across this place – the Arch …

Coming across Stefan Andersson’s work today was deeply inspiring, the Swedish artist has an exceptional eye and has created some intriguing objects in his time. Most notably this new catalogue from a solo exhibition currently taking place in Malmö, Sweden. It’s titled ‘Cups 2009-2012’ and features a series of small cups that he made between the years 2009-2012. This small size gave him the opportunity to fixate on …

Ceramic Work by Ann Jansson

It’s not easy for me to get blown away by design work anymore, I’m extremely picky with what I like and an object has to have a real story behind it for me to be enticed. I’m sort of bucking that trend today as I don’t have much information on this talented artist but I know her name and I’m equipped with some fantastic imagery, so I’m going to to try my best to convey what I think about these pieces. Hopefully afterwards you can make …

I came across Swedish photographer Erik Wahlstrom last March thanks to the collaborative project he put together for Nowness which followed chef come artist Massimo Bottura. Upon revisiting Erik’s …
