We recently came across the work of new-on-the-scene furniture designer, New York based James Strumpf, working under the studio name of ‘Avoirdupois’ who is about to release his debut collection ‘Tripartite’. What happens when an engineer turns his hand to design?
Paris based photographer, Valentin Fougeray’s refined vision allows him to create surrealistic still life photographs with a rough touch of reality and a contemporary aesthetic. His ability to make the ordinary, such as blacktop and tin foil seem, mystic, exotic and sometimes disorientating - is what has us coming back for more.
What do you get when you have two Canadian brothers coming from a background in construction and industrial manufacturing collaborate on a collection of object design? Dazzling pieces of furniture, that are one of a kind, in colour runs that make us dream! The Toronto based Susan for Susan, existing out of brothers John and Kevin Watts, make exclusive furniture and objects with a focus on industrial materials and manual manufacturing.
You might have heard about Danish designer, Stine Mikkelsen, and her experimental objects. Her geometric structures are tastefully simple and are made of fascinatingly intricate materials. Her priority in design actually lays with the materials, which comes from her background in textile design and the intensive research she does for each collection. Stine experiments with the raw materials drawn from her inspiration and creates the new, this process gives her object a truly natural touch.
With his digital art Andrés is able to create a wonder world of the highest aesthetics. He creates tension with his use of texture, juxtaposing soft carpets you want to bury yourself in against dreamlike metallic objects. The colours are nuanced and even if these images are digital, he plays with a sense of movement and liveliness. His work makes me fantasise of my dream house decorated with the most enticing objects and interiors.
