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!!

Perfectly photographed Art Deco staircases

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.

Marijuana Stockings

I would love to have a pair of these Marijuana Stockings by Strathcona. The brand specializes in fine printed socks, objects and leisure wear, all of which are limited-edition and original: painted, collaged, photographed or drawn by founder/artist Ryley O’Byrne.

A clever corner desk

This is Eckretär, a (rather expensive) corner desk, but also so clever. It saves space and also has a spot to charge your appliances.

Rock Studies

This is the world of photographer and director Charlie Schuck. He creates dreamy, fictionalized setups with careful color composition and texture combinations, that compliment each other perfectly. His long list of clients include well-known brands from the world of  fashion, technology, banking and also many magazine publications.


A wise-man’s head transformed into a planter

That’s what I call brain pickingsA Future Perfect is an Athens-based concept-brand. One of their products, Hacked, is a concrete wise-head transformed in an unexpected manner to produce a multi-functional everyday use object: a planter, a candle holder, a pencil pot all in one. I would love one as a planter!
