I have seen pictures of Ilse Crawfords London home many times and they never fail to catch my eye. The apartment, one large single space divided cleverly in different living zones, is for sale now...

Dark colours can bring a new quality to north facing rooms. The natural light from the north is harsher and tends to bring out the cooler tone. Therefore it is quite difficult to create a room that has an inviting feeling of light and atmosphere. A great way to create cosy rooms is to embrace the darkness and set dramatic effects. Dark walls and interiors paired with well placed artificial light can create a sense of intimacy and bring some drama to otherwise neglected rooms. ...

Italian born architect Lina Bo Bardi has been merging European modernism and influences of her adopted country Brazil throughout her designs - simple lines, geometric forms and a pop of color. Bardi’s 1950s designed Bowl Chair combines those elements with industrialized fabrication and flexibility in the human interaction. It questions the upright way people were supposed to sit by encouraging free movement and more relaxed postures. Images Borrowed From Studio Pepe & Arper ...

Cosy mountain home. Some moodboards I did for a recent chalet project in the Swiss alps.

New range of lights. Brooklyn based design studio Workstead just brought out a new light range. I love the simple, functional, yet elegant design of the Orbit lamps. The lamps feature a single or double spun brass disc, which orbits like a planet around a single glowing bulb. It can be arranged in a variety different orientations, reflecting the changing landscape of light throughout the day. The table lamp's base comes in three varieties of stone, including Carrara, Green Marble and Travertine. A little piece of art! ...

The lightness of iron | A courtyard in the former industrial area of Milan houses the laboratory and home of Antonino Sciortino, an artisan-artist, who has been able to reinterpret the ancient art of ironworking into a modern design language. Born in Sicily, he began to learn the craft at the early age of eight in the familiy's blacksmith's shop. Simultaneously he developed a passion for dance, leading to a successful career as a dancer and choreographer. At the age of forty he made a U-turn and started a new artistic adventure, returning to his roots as a metalsmith. Still connecting with his past, the lightness of dance is expressed in his iron works. This month Elle Decor Italia freatured his light flooded apartment, showing his artistry and sense for harmony and modernity. ...

Jaydon Moore at Design Miami | One of my highlights at this year´s Design Miami at Art Basel was American artist Jaydon Moore. His work is motivated by the search of hidden values in objects of daily use. With more and more mass-produced things in our lifes, memory and values transported throug heirlooms become more important and relevant again. The worth of an object is not only mesured by the value of it´s materials, but by it´s patina and wear, representing different layers of memory. For Jaydon the past still lives in an object - „nothing is lost, only given a new history“. He deconstructs, reassembles and alters silver tableware into new images. His pieces are poetic forms, addressing the meaning and value of memories. ...
