I love my food & design! So this project combines the two in a fab way... French food stylist and photographer Emilie de Griottes was commissioned by French culinary magazine Fricote to create a special feature for one of their issues. Emilie recreated Pantone colour swatches, using berries, carrots, lemon, candies, and other foods arranged upon a tart base decorated with the correspondent Pantone number and colour. I also love that her name is de Griottes [a type of cherry in french]! Yumm! See more of her work here.
Melbourne based graphic designer Alexandra Ethell offers these gorgeous collages on her Etsy shop, under the name "in the early hours". She has a mild case of insomnia, and that is when she gets these weird and wonderful ideas for her kitsch, retro & minimalist collages.
Check out her shop for more cockatoos, kites and giant cranes.
I came accross them again going through my bookmarks for future post ideas, and since you seemed to enjoy my previous post, I thought you would also like to see these gorgeous images by Max Zambelli. He photographed this stunning industrial space designed by Paola Navone in Spello, Italy. Originally from Turin, Paola Navone is an architect, interior designer and art director. This 17th century factory was successfully turned into a 500 sqm open plan apartment. It is full of ideas to keep your creative juices inspired. There are so many details that I love in this home! I love the industrial features, the contrast between the massive rustic beams & the sleek fireplace, the 10 metre high ceilings. The re-use theme that reappears throughout, from reclaimed wood, to up-cycled pieces of furniture. Finally, the cement floor tiles make it just perfect, in particular the clever transition with the hexagonal Moroccan cement floor tiles and the wooden floors.
It is not really surprising the Falcon's enamelware is back in the spotlight in the über trendy cafes and street food stalls around London. The smooth enamel reminds me of my grand mother's kitchen and provokes mouth watering reflexes.
The plain and simple design | white with the blue rim | has stood the test of time and reminds me of no-nonsense utilitarianism. It appeals to the same part of the brain as the apple crumble. Tradition & home cooked food.
New input from 3 designers has given Falcon a new lease of life: new colour ranges & branding to modernise the 1920s British design classic. I, for one, can't wait to see what the 92 year old will come up with next!
I am loving this amazing take on pop culture icons! Re-vision is an exercise in style and synthesis of different cultural icons by Barcelona based graphic designers Forma & co. It is a series of portraits of the most recognised characters of comic books, films, sports, tv & music. Flat graphics are timeless, you could not attach an era to this series of postcards. More please... Can you recognise them?
