I have posted about TineK collection recently to show you guys the batik wallpaper that I personally find so incredible. TineK keep everything very well balance with her black and whites tones, but I am happy to find a splash of color other than blue this spring. An unexpected Salmon that poses in these photos so beautifully, I also thought that I could bring a bit of color to your monday blues. Get a little inspired with these nice arrangement of objects and tones.
These green lams bring a surprising punch of color to contrast the black and white batik.
Love the collage with the salmon scissors with an old look.
Small boxes made out the batik paper, they are sooooo nice.
You know that if would have a wooden stamp or any type of stamp you could do your own seasonal napkins! just a thought.

Industrial lighting, bulbs at different sizes its a great whimsical idea.
A fireplace made of concrete in the middle of the room, neutral and balanced, love it!
Old rusty frames and concrete walls makes of a tiny space a big statement.
Mix chairs from the same industrial style keeping thing fun but in tone.
The way things are displayed in this room are just perfect.

Textile, textiles, textiles. Some of the most beautiful textile designs belongs to an architect, that’s right, a Viennese architect from the ’40 called Josef Frank. He was born in Vienna and moved for some time to Sweden where he build vacations homes for swedish families. In the years of WWII he and his wife moved to NY for some time to only return to a Sweden that appreciated and understood his art, his vision and his talent; a range of works that today still stand as the most fascinating and modern works of the 21st century, even though was created on the 20th century.

I have not seen branding at its highest in a long time, until I ran into this incredible water factory in Puebla, Mexico. I am in love with the way they handled the branding, the interior design and the product itself. Who would it thought that something so essential like WATER could be so hip and with a vintage twist. It is in fact a luxury, since as CASA DEL AGUA states WE ARE MADE OUT OF WATER, so why not get the best? Indeed, they put together a high quality product from the creation using local sources and purifying methods that includes a philosophy that belives that water is affected by thoughts. CASA DEL AGUA takes care of that in the process assuring the water is recieving only nurturing, peaceful and loving thoughts in the process. I am not sure if that would make it taste better… But what I am sure of is that that water looks clearly like a piece of great design.
Less is always more, simple iconic logo, feels like the good design from the 70′.
Branding at its best.. in my opinion. :)

Let’s now head to Italy… well, not quite. Henry Bertoia, famous for his wire chairs, was born in Northern Italy. At the age of 15 he visited his brother in Detroit, where he then decides to stay and study in the Cass Technical High School learning the art of making handmade jewelry and sculpture. In 1937 he received a scholarship to study at Cranbrook Academy of Art, where he mingled with Edmund Bacon, Ray and Charles Eames.
In 1943 he moves to California to work with Charles Eames until the war is over in the 45′. Later he helped stablish an studio in Pensilvania with Hans and Florence Knoll. It is here where he develops 5 different wire pieces known as the Bertoia Collection for Knoll. One of his most famous one it is the “diamond chair”. He had an incredible understanding of space and the material he used, his taste is an undeniable great mix of italy design and fresh inspiration from the america he felt in love with.

Few week ago I wrote about Danish architect- designer, Arne Jacobsen. I did forget to mention that he also created typography for Aarhus City Hall. In 1937 he created a typeface that still looks contemporary today and is without a doubt absolutely gorgeous. Today you can drink and eat his letters, figuratively. The typeface has been revived to decorate porcelain plates and mugs that you can purchase over here.

Another iconic design from a danish designer; the Wishbone Chair by Hans Wegner. He was born in Denmark in 1914, at the age of 22 he attended the school of Arts and Craft in Copenhagen. After school he assisted Arne Jacobsen until 1943, designing the Arhus Town Hall.

Also the creator for the Round Chair, called the most beautiful chair by the america interior magazine in 1950. The Wishbone Chair was created in 1950, it is considered his most successful design.
