&New

25 Oct, 2014

&New was founded by British-Finnish design duo Jo Wilton and Mirka Grohn. Their furniture collection is marked by the use of thin steel bars and an occasional plate of wood.

We’re all aware that the 80′s are back in fashion. Be it in a slightly different form and with a new direction, mash ups of styles and terms like ‘Future Weird’ float around in cyberspace, while internet culture allows styles to cross and breed like never before. But while looking...

Ben DuVall

21 Oct, 2014

Some very nice work by Brooklyn based designer Ben DuVall. His portfolio has plenty of self-initiated projects (which we love!) and a very nice style. It seems DuVall experiments with many styles, from contemporary old school to full on contemporary.

Petros Koublis

Inlands is the latest photographic endeavor of Greek photographer Petros Koublis. The images of this series are exploring the landscape through small individual fragments, each one of them describing a state of transformation.
