I love the products by danish team Luckyboysunday. It's a childrens line but super funky and slightly off. They use an amazing color palette and manage to create a world of fantasy through quirky creatures and playful designs. I especially love the knit house called "favourite place". It's like a prefab fort for a child's daydream.
This work by sculptor Kaspar Hamacher is stunning. I first saw this fire burning a log from the inside out at a Christmas market in Garmish, Germany. Hamacher's taken it further and used it as a step in his process to creating a beautiful piece of furniture. Gorgious work that feels like contemporary Art Pauvre. His website is beautifully shot too so I've included some of my favorite pics. The cluster of stools reminds me of Brancusi. Studio envy!
Ooh Donna Donna Donna, I'm seeing you in a whole new light. I've always loved her creatures. So much character. But I just came across the rain cloud baby blankets and I love! So cute. And I especially appreciate that they're not your typical baby colors. The pink one is actually the adult version. So great. One for me, one for Fi.
I've been thinking about these mobiles ever since I first saw them a few weeks ago and had to share. Made by Renilde De Peuter of the blog At-Swim-Two-Birds. They are hand died wooden balls. I just think the colors are amazing. As they are works of art, they are a bit out of my range and I'll just have to dream about them for now. So pretty though.
Wow. I'm totally in love with these beautiful pieces from Cyclical Industry. Simple, beautiful forms with elegant hits of enamel color in a striking palette. I want. And it turns out it's super affordable too. Wouldn't Fiona look good inside one of these lockets? (Persimmon or Mint please.) Bonus points for thoughtful photography too.
Incredible. I love this work by Berndnaut Smilde. In college we had the discussion about Andy Goldsworthy and if he should be considered a photographer or a sculptor since the photographic documentation was necessary to prove the works existance. I don't know where we ended up on that but the same goes for Smilde's work. He creates an actual cloud inside the space and photographs it before it disappears a minute later. To me these photographs are as beautiful as experiencing the piece in person. The contrast between the environment and the cloud are stunning. They have an element of surprise too when you realize how the work is actually created. I just love them.
Well that was one hell of a party! Thanks to everyone for being Kurt's friend. And thanks for posting so many great pictures. I grabbed from here and there so sorry for the lack of photo credits. Although it's a bit of a blur, I think this is a pretty good summary of how it all went down. Paradise, you rock my world. Happy summer everybody. Let's go camping!
