Wish I could have been in Milan to see the Everyday Life Objects Shop by the Reference Library and Apartamento magazine. Lunch by Martino Gamper, things made to order by Max Lamb, hot air balloons by Bertjan Pot…sounds nice. Photos by Nacho Alegre.

If you are in Denver, come down to Pecha Kucha Night Volume 5 tonight at Buntport Theater. Great speakers and big announcements!
This is one of the projects I’ve been waiting to hear about from Milan – thankfully Thomas Eyck updated their website first. Designer Christien Meindertsma, (creator of Flocks) has introduced a beautiful new series titled, ‘Flax’. By studying the history of the 16th century Dutch cordage industry, Meindertsma collected flax, spun the filaments into yarn/strands and then crafted several objects, including an extension cord and ottoman (above). More photos of the other pieces tomorrow.
Hella Jongerius’s latest works include a series of animal tables and artificial flowers. This collection, called Natura Design Magistra, will be on display at Gallery Kreo in Paris during the month of April.
Colorado designer, Jason Schneider, creates beautiful furniture handmade from corrugated cardboard at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass. Above are his ‘Spin’ cabinet with rotating levels and the ‘Tall’ chest. Thanks to Jason for the photos!
Katrina Nuutinen, a student at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki, designed the glass ‘Hely’ lamp to look like “jewels for the home”.
Beautiful lighting by Mattias Ståhlbom of TAF Arkitektkontor. ‘Bottle’ can be used as a pendant or tabletop fixture and is available in both glass and acrylic.
