Made me look! The same room, the same sofa and 3 really different moods! Thanks to Line Klein! (my favorite is number one!)
Have a nice weekend!
Colour is the result of a collaboration between the designers Andreas Engesvik and Daniel Rybakken. Colour is a lamp concept involving colour, light and cathegory investigations. Colour is a free standing, fully adjustable structure that allows us to compose light using diffusors in various colours. Great, let's PLAY!
I'm really in love with the idea of the Good Night Lamp founder Alexandra Deschamps - Sonsino:
She would like to think that people can share parts of their lives with their families & loved ones in more subtle ways with the flick of a switch, like a physical social network. The Good Night Lamp is a family of internet-connected lamps. Turn the Big Lamp on and the Little Lamps turn on wherever they are.
So please support this Kickstarter campaign, I think this an amazing project!
Thoughtful project by Siren Elise Wilhelmsen. In her own words: 365 is stitching the time as it passes by. It is knitting 24 hours a day and one year at the time, showing the physical representation of time as a creative and tangible force. After 365 days the clock has turned the passed year into a 2-m long scarf. Now the past can be carried out in the future and the upcoming year is hiding in a new spool of thread, still unknitted.
Get a look behind the scenes, step by step the making of! Where would you have stopped the styling?

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!

Milan based artists Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla create a complex and hypnotic work: an exotic bizarre jungle vegetation under different colored filters.
This short film made my day!! A 9 year old boy who, while spending his time in vacation at his father's shop, built an asortment of wonderful cardborad arcade games for the store customers. And then happens a flashmob.... ;-) But please have a look!

Generally I think it's so difficult to buy DIY Products, often they look (for me) to handicrafted. Studio Stampel is an exception. Handcrafted in Melbourne from post manufacture timber waste, Studio Stampel designs accessories and homewares. And they are surprisingly affordable! Online here.
The weather is great in Switzerland, first BBQ's and 'working in the garden' time. In this context, I saw the project of Anne Holtrop, it looks like a house in no man's land, enchanted rooms inbetween reality and fiction. The Trail House is part of the exhibition Unknown Territories curated by Museum de Paviljoens.
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!
Finally back in Switzerland, (also my soul) and I have settled in well here. The weather is really cold (minus 10degrees) and I (my work output) feel more like a fat grumpy bear in the hibernation. Anyway, today some design treats for you!
The photography of Noemie Goudal is really to dive in! She frequently works with largescale papers and face closely with the existing room or landscape situation. The effect is stunning, the bound of the real and the ficitional perception is unsharp.
Yes, I'm in India again!! To be honest, I'm really hard working, but I found some really interesting new things here... The masks and the toys are so beautiful, the shape, the colors and the smart materials! What do you think? Do I have a shifted designview....?
1.Papier Mache, Mask of the God Hanuman
2.Wood Toy, Attack by the tigers on the elephant
3.Cowdung Toys, Toy of Lord Jagannath
4.Wood Carving, painted toy of a monkey
A special thank for this wonderful present to Aditi Ranjan, she made this wonderful book, Handmade in India!
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.

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!
