This monograph on the work of Britain Barber&Osgerby shows the wide range of productdesign, also included process and materials, inpirations and working methods of this great design duo.
This books reveals a wonderful selection of Scandinavian design, in my eyes a timeless selection collected by blogger Emma Fexeus.
The personal blog from French stylist Aurélie Lécuyer, better known as ledansla, is a daily treasure for me. Photographer Melanie Rodriguez did a great job for The socialite Family a new family related interior blog, with a mood report in the creative oasis of Aurélie. More here! Merci beaucoup for this special!
Starting from a simple geometrical shape, this truncated conical mirror allows different positions for different kind of functions. Fixing on wall, the mirror is a sort of megaphone that makes the wall scream for reflection. Hence the name EDVARD, after the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch, the man behind the painting ‘The Scream’.
This morning, while sipping my first cappuccino, I found this wonderful daycare in Amsterdam. Wow! Kleinlab is a really unique and trendsetting way of daycare, they focus on the child as a researcher. My little boy would love it for sure!

Yes I'm a little bit in this deco mood at the moment. we hope to finish our house till the end of april, so I have to look for all this great inspiring (affordable and DIY) interior stuff... The house of Silje Aune Eriksen, a Norwegian ceramic designer, is featured in the Norwegian Elle Decoration. Yes please!
While searching for a new pendant lamp for our dining table I stumbled across this big fat lamp, Under The Bell. Really great, but, what do you think, do we need a loft ceiling height for this lamp? I'm really unsure.... They write: Under the Bell is not just a lmapshade, as it hangs over the table, it creates a room within a room - like a dome encasing a building...
How do you say it in English: to kill two birds with one stone?! In Swiss German we only kill flys, but anyway: the new hotspot in Amsterdam is the hotel THE EXCHANGE. Students of the Amsterdam Fashion institute dressed the hotel rooms like models on a catwalk. Smart idea?! Why am I talking about birds? The link is from a (for me) new blog April and May, wonderful creative moods... Thank you!
In two weeks our little family kitchen will be mounted, yeahh! When I saw this pictures from Moplus architects, i was really happy about our 'whole in black kitchen' decision...This black kitchen is killer! Here first the wonderful pictures of the house s30, later this year our black killer kitchen..... ;-) Btw, how cool is this handrail?!
Where they create is a blog in which Paul documents workspaces and studios of designers and creative people all over the world, wonderful moods behind the scene. Frame will publish his work as a book, it's like a workplace exploration of the who is who in the design scene... out September 2011, preorder here.
I'm back from holidays, today is the first working day! It was super relaxing in Ticino, a lot of friends and family, good food and some sunshine.... ;-) For the blogging start, I found so much cool stuff! First of all, I need nice things : created to make contemporary art collectable and affordable. It's really hard to choose.....
Back from India! It was a very intensive time, inspiring but also very exhausting. I bought a lot of materials and fabrics, I'll show you some projects soon... ;-)
Found this wonderful interior moods from photographer Bollaert Stijn. This small conventional house has been rebuilt by a group of young architects. The kitchen opens up to a white living area with spacious windows. Does anyone know the name of the architects? More pictures here!
I'm hardly planning our rebuilding. Space versus budget versus light versus material and so on. I stumbled across this firm in Milan, called ALBED, they produce equipped walls and walk in closets. I really like the system, to change walls in to open rooms! What do you think about?
I love the style of this couple, Sarah Cottier gallerist and Ashley Barber photographer. (more via the selby)
This was the first of five hard working weeks this year! Start working, organizing little boy, some rebuilding stuff at home, and so one... Tomorrow I will show you the status quo of our attic floor, really cool.
Today I share a little candy with you: New York's Barton Bonbonniere, architect Victor Gruen with Alvin Lustig as graphic counsultant, 1952. (via vintagekids)
House H is located in Tokyo, designed by Japanese architects Sou Fujimoto. Half open rooms simulate more space, the wooden stair works as the red thread in this small 125m2 house. Looks fantastic!
