agata bielen jewelry

21.7.14




AGATA BIELEN is a raw contemporary jewelry brand from Poland. The geometrical lines and simple shapes immediately caught our attention. The main inspiration for her work is this straight line, that is the basic unit of geometry found in space.

After being spotted by Scott Schumann from The Sartorialist while sketching her jewelry pieces in a little cafe she decided to do what she truly loved resulting a beautiful jewelry collection.

Especially the FINE LINE collection is one of our favorites. The FINE LINE collection is a return to the first inspiration, the original point of departure - a straight line. Two-dimensional geometry is raised into space. The line breaks in several angles creating three-dimensional forms. The outcome is a small sculpture-like cubical pieces made of movable tubes that adapt to the body forms.

string lights for flos

16.7.14

The String Lights, designed by Michael Anastassiades, for Flos are the perfect architectural light of dividing spaces in a different way. Michael Anastiassiades was inspired by several elements: 'When I sit on a train, traveling, and I look out of the window, I always see these strings of electricity that connect the pylons. And as we move through at high speed, I see these perfectly parallel string and find myself transfixed by the amazing sense of discipline - how can this be possible?' And also from a practical point: 'How to move lights when electricity points are always where you least want them to be. So how do you take them where you want them in an effortless and poetic way?' 
We love this point of view.. and the design is stunning!

Textile landscape serie by Hanna Dalrot

9.7.14


Textile landscapes is a graduation project by Hanna Dalrot for Beckhams College of Design. Hanna grew up in a valley surrounded by mountains. The shades of light, structure of the ground, felled trees, severed trunks, the reflection of the river and the silhouettes of the hills all form the basis of this creative artistic process.

The collection of textile patterns is inspired by the silhouettes. We love how these kind of inspirations result in a beautiful and artistic collection where you can almost feel all the love and work that has been put in this process.


Case House by Jun Igarashi Architects

The outside of this home is like a box, but what a surprise when you look inside. Lots of wood, white and the steel staircase that connects all the different floors. And what about these great wooden ceilings? The clean look of the house makes it look so simple but the structure of this house is amazing. An amazing place to live in.
