Shylights

Having admired their work at last year’s Dutch Design Week, I was thrilled to discover Studio Drift has created Shylight, a kinetic light sculpture that unfolds and retreats during a 30 foot (9 meter) fall. The choreographed motions mimic the same action of blooming flowers or the billowing of parachutes. Now permanently installed at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

Olive The Best

Happy holidays, all! We’ve certainly been absent of late, but in the meantime have been collecting lots of great material to share. Will do our best to use some of our much-needed time off constructively and post it! Cheers to you and thanks for following. xx

Steel Fox

Want.

The Line

The photography. The spaces. The styling. A SoHo apartment filled with lovely and inspiring storied objects.

The Black Workshop

Absolute. Perfection.

Pantone Press Sheet Poster

Wanted! Spotted on the wall (amongst a great collection) at our friends’ studio, Sali Tabacchi. Trick is choosing which palette…

 

Ninebyfour

So clean and simple. A light fixture by Waarmakers using wood, cork and energy efficient LED lighting. (via Defringe)

Derek Wilson

Lovely vessels by ceramics artist Derek Wilson.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
