Short Film on Architect Robert Madison

I stumbled across the story of gentleman and architect Robert Madison a little while ago now and I’ve been waiting for a rainy day to bring it into our archive for us all to consume and learn from. Today is that day so I guess I shall begin by explaining that Robert is an influential Mentor, Patron of Arts and Pioneering Architect who was presented with the Cleveland Arts Prize as a Special Citation for Distinguished Service …

Short Film on Viola Maker Nicholas Frirsz

It’s always compelling to be able to share not only a beautiful creation with you, our readers, but a history and a heritage too. Which is why I’m rather eager to showcase the story of Nicholas Frirsz who’s a fifth generation luthier, someone who makes or repairs lutes and other string instruments. In this eight minute short film we get to hear of how he got involved in this family tradition. Now based in New York, Nicholas …

Finding Home Film by Muuto

So this short filmed piece from Nordic design firm Muuto is perhaps a little more lighthearted than traditionally shared here on the site, but thats not without noting the beautiful design at the core of this creative project. I actually really enjoyed this piece as their team got inventive with how they could showcase their collection of furniture and other home based products, I’ve not seen anything like this used before …

The Isle of Langkawi by James W Griffiths

Even since our very early posts we’ve always tried to bring our readers the weird and the wonderful from time to time. In fact, I’m quite proud to be involved behind the scenes of a platform that continually presents people with a little diversity because I’m a strong believer in the worlds strength being in it’s contrasting differences. So naturally I really enjoyed this short film which highlights a little of the heri …

Baking Dutch Oven Bread with Tiger in a Jar

Kinfolk continue their support of the independent creative scene by collaborating with the Tiger in a Jar collective to create a charming short film which highlights the beauty of baking Dutch oven bread. The guilty conscience in me has to admit that I don’t actually bake as much fresh bread as I should, I’m addicted to the smell of it though so this project is a welcome reminder to get into the kitchen and make some of …

Bombay Bicycle Club Music Video by Karim Huu Do

Seen as we use this space to share our inspirations it could seem a little odd to some of you that we rarely directly reference our musical tastes, so I thought I’d offer a little insight into this with this beautifully filmed music video from Karim Huu Do. This is actually an unofficial video for Bombay Bicycle Club’s track “Lights Out, Words Gone” but you really wouldn’t know it …

Honey Harvest by Kinfolk

Our good friends at Kinfolk release their newest shoot titled “Honey Harvest” featuring some beekeeping. A pretty interesting piece that really connects the animal to our everyday life, I think a lot of the time we forget where our food actually comes from and how it gets to our plate so it’s nice to see this connection. Also this piece brings into perspective friendships and the power of sharing food with our loved ones, even more so …

Bonsai by Colby Waller

Bonsai’s are quite an interesting subject and have been an on and off fascination of mine for a little while , it’s a shame but you never seem to hear much about them on the internet. Last night I stumbled across this video by Colby Waller about the Nation Bonsai Museum in Washington D.C. arboretum. The arboretum is a living museum where trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants are cultivated for scientific and …

La Mer de Pianos by Tom Wrigglesworth and Mathieu Cuvelier

It’s not often that both me and Daniel get to sit down and watch a creative video together in the office, usually we’re sitting on separate desks and are focused on our own work but since we’ve been on a late night slog working towards the opening of the shop tonight we were lucky to see a film that caught both of our attentions immediately. We even said it was the …

Omer Arbel for Bocci Short Film

The good folks over at Style Park have kindly put together this delightful short film which summarises the process that glass blower Omer Abel undertakes when creating these beautiful bespoke lights for Canadian Design collective Bocci. Although this is pretty brief it’s packed full of creative inspiration in the range of looks we get of Omer creating, plus I’ve brought across a little imagery of the final product from Bocci which I think …

Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.

A nice film by Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co, a company who looks to sell practical and aesthetically pleasing products for the home and office space. Founded by Brian Faherty, the idea was spawned after he discovered a collection of antique cast iron moulds that had been out of production for over fifty years. He decided to bring back these moulds into production and use the best American materials available today …

Printmaking with Keegan Meegan

We all like seeing prints being made, it’s a real fun creative process and although I’ve seen this type of project a million times over I’m yet to get bored of seeing these industrious presses in full flow. They are just mesmerising contraptions evolved from the basic design that Johannes Gutenberg curated way back in 1440 would you believe. I just love reading about the heritage which they are so rich in, it’s really quite fas …
