This week was Clerkenwell Design Week in London. A great event to see new Design, contemporary furniture, lighting and accessories. I had a good browse through the Farmiloe building and here you see what caught my eye.
Brands to watch: WorkHouse and its collection of furniture, tiles and lighting with an honest, raw and contemporary edge. Duffy London and its UP coffee table giving the impression of a glass table being suspended by balloons. Viccarbe and its 70′s inspired Maarten chair by Victor Carrasco and the clever folded Origami inspired Aperture lamps distributed by Luminosity. Yet my favourite the “This is not Bauhaus” lamps by Servomuto in collaboration with LEITMOTIV who provided the fabric for the creation of the lampshades. Bauhaus’ pure geometrics and baroque’s excess of decoration find an unusual match full of contrast.
Here Doris van Rey and Tobias Scholl in their shop D’or in Eppendorf in Hamburg/Germany. Its a great shop full of Vintage and passed on exclusive clothes, shoes and jewellery. At the back Tobias is looking after the amazing anitiques he is sourcing from all over the world and also a selection of self designed and customised mirrored furniture at www.Maison-Dor.com
I wish all of you just the Best for 2011. May all your wishes and aspirations come true!
Also a big Thank you for all your support, great comments and interest in my blog and pictures. I had a second brilliant year of enjoying going out and about in search of personalities and interesting looks. Here just some of the inspiring people I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing last year!
Lots of Love xx
“Woodwalk” is a 25-pair limited edition of wooden footwear by Paul Coudamy for K-Swiss.
“Wooden Textiles” by Elisa Strozyk is an approach to responsible thinking concerning lifecycles of products. The outcome is a material that is half wood-half textile, between hard and soft, challenging what can be expected from a material or category.
“Giacca di Jeans” and “Borsa del Pittoreee” by artist Livio De Marchi.
Isn’t that a brilliant Bathtub by Anna Van Der Lei? The specially designed joints expand when they become wet, the wood gives out a pleasant pine aroma when the bath is filled and you can also gently steam your clothes while you are bathing.
Tweelink presents the Woody Workshop. Woody’s originate from wooden waste material like shelfs, fallen branches, old toys and lollipop sticks. Cute!
