'bottoms up'...

What we know as a doorbell, a square box, does not actually indicate its function. In Peter van der Jagt's 'Bottoms Up' for avant garde design-house Droog, nothing is hidden. The sound is created and symbolised by the crystal wine glasses. The doorbell announces guests with a musical toast.

established & sons...

Established & Sons is the brainchild of Wallpaper magazine's co-founder Alasdhair Willis.
With a stable of designers, including Zaha Hadid, Sebastian Wrong, Mark Holmes and Tamara Caspersz, Established & Sons is hailed as putting glamour and wit back into British Design.
Established & Sons strategy is that it's entire collection be both designed and manufactured in Britain. It's stylish eccentricity places Established & Sons at the forefront of contemporary design.

the nought collective...

We recieved an email recently from Katie Parker at The Nought Collective, which specialize in the design and production of hand made silk rugs from Nepal. These stunning hand-knotted carpets, in silk, wool and cashmere blends, use a monochromatic palette and are unique, sophisticated and modern pieces that would not only "work" in any one's apartment, but inspire and enhance.
The designs are based on the reflection of light on wire images and the iridescent silk changes the entire look of the rug depending on your perspective, resulting in their "Phoenicia" design being nominated for an Interior Design "Best of Year" Award in 2007.
The above image is an actual rug being hand-knotted in Nepal. It features the "borealis" design in their graphite color palette and truly illustrates the scope and luminescence of the carpet. It also conveys how personal the creation of these rugs are - usually about four people work on one rug at a time.

print dolls...

Marika Jarv and Alice Flynn of Print Dolls certainly understand the art of typography.
Their striking black and white prints are inspired by the destination scrolls of old buses and trams.
Available online in Palm Beach; Balmain; Bondi and Manly this 'All Stops To...' print range is both nostalgic and cool.

just the ticket...'a wish'

Just the ticket for today's brash, 'ME ME ME' and cynical society is this tiny, little ticket that stops time whilst you make a wish for whatever you want.
Scarlet Jones is a great store in East Malvern, Victoria who stock these wonderful 'wish tickets'. Steven (my phones banned forever and ‘Dynasty’ back on cable TV where it belongs)

transforming room divider

The right room divider can transform a sprawling open space by creating intimacy and adding dimension. Nola Star takes the concept a couple steps further with customizable patterns that also let in light. This flexibility means Nola Star can be configured to nearly any space—whether mid-room, as a wall covering, in a window, or simply as an accent element—and it can fold out of the way if needed.
