Time is running like hell! A big project we're working on should be finished these days, thats why the lack of posts... Anyway, a lot of nice products and concepts on the web! Charles Kalpakian is the smart design brain behind Studio Hello Karl. He's looking for traditional spirit and a fusion of techniques. It works!
Milan based artists Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla create a complex and hypnotic work: an exotic bizarre jungle vegetation under different colored filters.
I really like the playful design approach the designers edholmullenius create. Tidny is a new pattern on fabric for IKEA. Children can use textile pencils on... Sweet!
Melbourne based artist Esther Stewart made this stunning serie Foldout. In her own words: 'Foldout' is a series of folding seats clustered together in different formations that respond to the locations architecture. This project aims to explore the boundaries of perspective through the use of large colourful geometric patterns.

Just found another great project for Salone del Mobile Milano 2012. Marni presented a collection of 100 chairs made in Colombia by ex-prisoners. They reinterpreted this common seats and modified woven pattern and created new color schemas. So, if you are a lover of Marni fashion, I think you'll like this as well.... (btw Anticamera is Marni's quarterly online magazine, featuring words and images.)
Pally is a stool for kids and grown-ups. By moving the colourful sticks you can create countless patterns for the seat. The sitting experience is soft because the sticks lay on superlon. Pally comes in two mobile sizes - large and small. Pally is currently looking for a manufacturer.... contact here!
Do you need some material moods? Here we are!
In design I am particularly interested in the properties of the material: the soft texture of ceramics, its subtle colours and matte and glossy surfaces. I highly value everyday moments. Maybe what I am trying to do is to introduce some solace and consolation into daily life through everyday objects of beauty.
