Brian Jungen

I love Brian Jungens work. Here are some works from his portfolio.

Scholten & Baijings

"Colour" by Scholten & Baijings is an interior colour explosion. The designs of these blankets consist of interrupted colour sequences, with vivid stripes and a multitude of colours. The blankets are made of merino wool and cotton, making them very soft. As in the pictures above these blankets can bring new life into that designer chair that you payed an arm and a leg for. Beautiful colours!

Design Hotels

Quoted from the site..."Design Hotels is a collection of over 140 independent hotels united by progressive design."...This is a great idea and I know of at least 5 other South African hotels that should be in their lists. So plan your next holiday to a hotel that embraces design.

Wow! Look at these chairs! Designed in the 1940s by Finn Juhl they are truly masterpieces in their own right. See them here.

Cavern Wallpaper

Back from the dead, feeling slightly better and ready to post again. I had to post about these "Navajo" inspired wallpapers. Again I would only use them in smaller quantities in a room but they would look great nonetheless. From Cavern.

Conrad Botes

Conrad Botes is from the Western Cape in South Africa and his own description of his work reads: "The sharp lines of his figuration coupled with the bold strident colours, the juxtaposition of symbols and subjects, serve to amplify the contradictions and exigencies of South African culture and society. Racial conflict, economic and religious status symbols, false values and cultural mystifications are at the centre of Botes' crude, ironic, yet naïve attacks." His work has been celebrated in South Africa and if you are interested you can purchase it here.

La Linea

I absolutely love La Linea. Created way back in 1969 this little outline of a man is an absolute classic. I will definately own the whole collection of these short animations one day.

Tim Burgard

Are you kidding me? Look at these! I cant believe how good they are. Please go here and check more out. Tim Burgard, I bow before you, you are the illustration master, and anytime you want to train someone up Im here and ready!

Buick "Y". I have no words for how beautiful this car is. 1938! That is some forward thinking....What happened GM?


Some amazing products from MGX-Materialise, I love these hanging lamps.

Kamon Design

Kamon Design was founded by Keiichi Tanaami a designer/illustrator/artist from Japan. His style was created by researching warriors armour, kimonos and even tombstones, using these tiny motifs that were once used as family motifs. He has embraced a very old tradition and formed a new contemporary Japanese illustrative style.

I love pop-up books. I was obsessed with them when I was knee high and naughty. I think I read the Spot books like 20 times each. I just had to post this book.

ISO50 Update

I love this style of design. Here are some of the new prints from ISO50. For $15 a poster, it is a bargain.
