Oh my God these cakes! These amazing elegant creations are made by Tortik Annushka, a Moscow-based designer cake studio. Founded by siblings Madina and Tortik Yavorskaya, the family-run pastry company creates an impressive selection of colorful cakes. Madina is trained in fine arts and Tortik’s background is in architecture so the cakes are clearly inspired by their backgrounds.
_lorem_ipsum_or Monsieur Boz is creating powerful messages with calligraphy on ephemeral objects found on the street in Montreal and shares them on his Instagram account called Garbage Beauty. He calls his style calligraffiti. The “Fake News” television sets are my favourite, so relevant these days.
The same designer created this great lettering T-shirt. You can purchase here.
The Milanese duo Matteo Carrubba and Angela Tomasoni, are behind Write Sketch &, a fabulous Italian stationery brand. I am selecting the beautiful rainbow ruler, their colourful pleated tote bags, made of silk-effect polyester and fountain pens. Wish-listed!.
In Tatsuya Tanaka’s ongoing Miniature Calendar, objects take a new meaning. Since I discovered him in 2015, he continues to create his amazing miniature scenes of everyday life combining his collection of diorama items with familiar objects. His consistency is impressive: he creates a new scene every day.
I first thought that this amazing work was done by Chinese artists. But despite the name, Zim&Zou are two french artists, based in Dordogne, France. Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann first studied graphic design, but then decided to focus on installations using handcrafted objects made out of tangible materials. Their favorite material is basically paper. It blows my mind how these artists dedicate their time to manipulate paper, creating beautiful intricate and colorful sculptures. Selected clients include Hermès, IBM, Microsoft, TIME, The Washington Post, Der Spiegel and the Nobel Prize Museum.
This beautiful retro mosaic was recently installed in the entryway of a Brooklyn home. The Brownstone Project is committed to reviving the art of mosaics and offers custom entryway mosaic design and installation services, working with newly emerging craftsmen. I am imagining a beautiful “Athens” mosaic in the entryway of our home!
