Dylan Kendall’s Efeet Collection is pretty sweet – bowls, vases, sugar bowls, all with feet. It reminds me of Jorine Oosterhoff’s Tea Time tableware – I don’t know what it is about adding a pair of feet to a bowl or a vase, but it definitely makes for some happy tableware. Even better, $1 of every item sold goes to support Hollywood Arts.
I appreciate the playfulness of this furniture set – the jigsaw pieces, the differing styles, the textiles. Cvetnoetno is a collaboration between Slovenian architect Špela Leskovic, fashion designer Almira Sadar, and the furniture company Mizarstvo Černe.
I thought that this adaptive reuse project – The Centra at Metropark by KPF – is a pretty cool example of what can be done with aging 1960′s office buildings out in the suburbs of America. By looking at it, you would never guess it used to be a pretty generic building. But the new curtainwall and the L-shaped floating addition re-tune it to modern day.
New print release!Roberta Pinna creates beautiful paintings of figures in motion. I was immediately drawn to Costumata in Red for its bright colors and the weight the figure brings to the artwork – anchored, yet suspended, light but heavy.
Roberta choose to pair her print with Restore NYC for their work with international survivors of sex trafficking in New York City, because she believes that “only where human rights and dignity exist can people express their personal best, establish democracy, and a solid future.” Read our interview with Roberta here, and buy the print here.
I spend a decent amount of my time on job sites and am always interested in the tools the different crews use. So far, the most interesting tools are the spinning laser levels that the carpenters use. Today, a brochure of the Simpson Quik Drive System came into the office. Watch the video and you’ll see how fast this tool hangs panels of all kinds and lays flooring. Looks like fun to me.
We’ve been searching around for Marimekko fabric for drapes in our new living room. At the shop today I noticed some pretty baller aprons including this Puutahurin Parhaat Apron. Wish I could have walked around the printmaking shop in one of these.
