• The sphere is a fascinating form. Consider the Earth, our eyes and the perfect pearl. Or symbolic spheres, like our circle of friends and family. Even the womb, where we first experienced a close sense of contact. On a philosophical level, many have questioned the sphere and its significance. Dating back to Plato, the origins of humans were described in mythical terms as spherical entities, with men as descendants from the sun, women from the earth and the third sex from the moon. In Greek Mythology, Zeus is said to have split each of them in two, creating an urge in all of us to find our other half for a sense of wholeness.

    Close Contact is a photography exhibition that resulted from the fabulous collaboration between Kinfolk the genius Norm Architects and Sørensen Leather. The exhibition hosts ten limited-edition photographs–and the majestic leather spheres used in the making of each image.

    The images highlight the contrasts and the connections between geometrics and anthropomorphic shapes–the human form–making a connection between the leather and human skin.

    Leather, a universally used material–transformed into a sphere–poignantly delivers the message that we humans are connected.

    The exhibition is displayed in a highly subdued and tactile way–very characteristic of the elegance of all three of the collaborators. The immaculate taste of Norm Architects is indisputable; Architecture, design or photography–they do it all... and they do it well.

    A few personal favorites:

    All works are for sale and the exhibit is open to the public Monday to Friday from 10:00-16:00 until October 31st at Amagertorv 14, first floor. For more details you are welcome to contact press@kinfolk.com.

  • Photography © Ryan Romanes I've spent several sleepless nights these days, which on the positive side helps me find great Artists, Projects and Shops that tickle my curiosity. Last night, I found Ryan Romanes a New Zealand-born graphic designer and art director now living in Melbourne, Australia. Ryan was asked to create a series of enticing imagery for Blue Baths to promote their in-house and new out-catering services. Enticing, yes. Scrumptious, too.

  • Photography © Pia Ulin I fell in love with this place photographed by the talented and renowned Pia Ulin as soon as I saw it. If I could have put in images what I meant last week about giving my home a bit more color and introducing more natural items, this would be the "natural items" part. I believe whoever lives there is happy, centered and at peace, or so I think I would.

  • Photography © Skarp Agent I've been currently loving (rather obsessing over) a show narrated by the unapologetic and always interesting, Anthony Bourdain and very often replicating some of the mind-blowing yet, simple recipes I see on the show. The Mind of a Chef is that rare and beautiful thing: an intelligent show about cooking. The show follows two great culinary figures from their home kitchens to destinations around the globe in search of ingredients, inspiration and the perfect meal. It is impossible, and I assure you of that, to watch this show and not end up feeling highly passionate about the simplest of produce. Roland Persson's photos reminded me of that feeling of respect and love for food. His spectacular use of colors and light is breath-taking. Don't you think?
  • Photography © Junpei Kato How brilliant is this collaboration between one of my favorite clothing stores, COS and the amazing Japanese Photographer, Junpei Kato The perfect balance of both worlds and mix of Japanese style and the classic feel of COS' still photography has turned this project into a work of art. I'm particularly in love with that first image, admiring the work of passionate people makes my day and so this has. What are you loving today?
