• Photography © Ryan Hopkinson Ryan Hopkinson and Andrew Stellitano’s Strokes celebrate the start of artistic endeavor, The project is a series of five images that seek to define a single paint stroke as a physical structure. The strokes appear suspended in mid air, and it is difficult to discern the scale or the purpose of the movement of each. “Each stroke is completely unique and hand made". The duo continues to create new projects forming new structures that will surely, captivate us one more time.
  • Photography © Kristofer Johnsson Every year Residence Magazine awards the Designer of the Year prize to a designer or studio that propels the Swedish design scene forward. In 2015 this prize went to Note Design Studio. The exhibition is presented at the architecture museum ArkDes in Stockholm and is curated by Lotta Agaton, one of Sweden’s leading stylists. Just yesterday I spoke about Lotta's beautiful new book in collaboration with Pia Ulin and now we're back here talking about how wonderful she is. The installation proves that Note Design Studio deserved this prize and our praises. Don't you think?
  • Photography © Brooke Holm In a recent posts I showcased some Interior images from Brooke Holm but this project was engraved in the back of my mind and I kept itching to share it. This series of photographs are equally beautiful and meaningful:

    "In Brooke Holm’s photographic series ‘Arctic’, she explores the unique landscape of the northernmost region of the world. On an expedition that started in search of beauty, silence and isolation, Holm discovered more than just a visually arresting natural environment. There was an obvious fragility to the North that awakened an inner desire to protect it. Holm’s work reveals the Arctic’s rare aesthetic in an effort to raise awareness, not only of its existence, but also of the prevailing impact of a changing climate."

    Brooke Holm is an Australian based photographer whose work traverses dramatic landscapes, conceptual still life, considered interiors and architecture.

    The project was opened to the public last year at Koskela - a Design Shop, Gallery and Cafè also based in beautiful Australia.

Ernesto's signature fashion illustration style uses entirely collaged images, merging fashion imagery with anything from flowers, cliffs, renaissance paintings or architectural structures, to create a beautifully surrealist outcome. His unique vision has awarded him numerous collaborations with some of the best fashion houses around the world and I cannot help but anxiously wait for what's to come next for this genius Artist.

  • Kirstie van Noort (1986) sees design as a way to communicate a certain process or the story behind a material. When she is intrigued by one of these a study starts by making detailed test and experiments. The outcome of the research could form the foundation of the concept behind a final product or result in the research itself. Her 6:1 Collection has been in my bookmarks for a long time and it made my day as I revisited it this morning. The stunning color palette and attention to detail is stunning.
