The red pool of The Library Hotel at Koh Samui

An amazing red-tiled pool near the beach, in direct contrast with the all-white library room both situated in The Library Hotel at Koh Samui, Thailand. The rest of the hotel doesn’t look bad either.

Great logo for a sophisticated cocktail bar

This is a beautiful logo designed by Greek illustrator Costas Theoxaris for Mary Pickford, a new cocktail bar in Piraeus, Greece. I especially love the gold stencil logo as a mural! Exquisite work and very art deco style.

A straightforward work contract

“You give me money, I’ll give you creative.
I’ll start when the check clears.
Time is money. More time is more money.
I’ll listen to you. You listen to me.
You tell me what you want, I’ll tell you what you need.
You want me to be on time, I want you to be on time.
What you use is yours, what you don’t is mine.
I can’t give you stuff I don’t own.
I’ll try not to be an ass, you should do the same.
If you want something that’s been done before, use that.

PRO BONO

If you want your way, you have to pay.
If you don’t pay, I have final say.

Let’s create something great together.”

This is actually a work contract for a design firm in Chicago. So straightforward and simple!

Japanese manhole covers are beautiful

In Japan, manhole covers don’t have to be ugly. Japanese sewer lids can be beautiful, intricate examples of urban design, with references to local sights, traditional printmaking, history, architecture and pop culture . The above images are part of a photographic project by S. Morita, who has recorded over a thousand manhole covers around Japan over the years.

So don’t forget, next time you are in Japan, look down..!

A new book from House Industries

Known for its eclectic font collections, House Industries has been around the design world for more than 25 years. Apart from the beautiful mid-century style fonts, they have also designed everything from books, home decor, toys, stationery, t-shirts and apparel for women and men. They are now releasing a new book titled The Process is the Inspiration on May 30.

In their words: “With topics ranging from fonts and fashion to ceramics and space technology, this beautifully-useful volume offers a personal perspective on the origin of ideas for creative people in any field. Presented in the honest, authentic, and often irreverent style that you’ve come to expect from House Industries, The Process is the Inspiration is a collection of helpful lessons, stories and case studies that demonstrate how you can transform obsessive curiosity into personally satisfying and successful work … Most importantly, this book shows that there’s no sense in waiting for inspiration because inspiration is already waiting for you.”

The Japanese technique of Nerikomi pottery

Nerikomi pottery looks amazing! A Japanese technique (which is also often called “neriage”) is used for creating mesmerizing patterns with colored clay. This video from artist Tomoro looks so satisfying!!

Marimekko’s iconic dresses

Marimekko’s spring/summer 2017 collection reintroduces five iconic garments from the 1960s and 1970s. I just love the vintage prints and the colors! This one above is called Liidokki dress.

1950s pencils

Gorgeous 1950s pencils, reissued and sold from Present & Correct, the website with the vintage treasures.

Hakanaï live performance

  

Oh, this looks amazing, I wish I could experience it! Hakanaï is a project by Claire Bardainne & Adrien Mondot. It is live animations performed inside a digital moving cube, based on physical movement modeling, on an original music score played live. Looks like a combination of dance choreography and performance, something between dream and reality.
