I'm in the mood for gentle waves today. Clockwise, from top left: Modern Bamboo Spring Chair by Relish; Savoy Vase by Alvar Aalto, Finnstyle; 3 Row Necklace by Elk Accessories; Wave Bangle Bracelet by sirenjewels, Etsy; Dumbells by Philippe Starck, POAA; Logico lamp by Michele de Lucchi and Gerhard Reichert for Artemide; Garabaldi Cardigan by Anthropologie.
About a year ago I took a look at my teetering stacks of design magazines and decided that it was time to both reduce the clutter and create an archive of my favourite images. And, it occurred to me today how nice it would be to share with you here just what I've got on file. So, from the Archive, a photo of the Grey glacier in the Southern Patagonia ice field, just west of the Cordillera del Paine. Cool science factoid - the intense blue is caused by oxygen trapped inside the ice for millions of years. From Marie Claire Maison.
Theresa of Otsutree was kind enough to send along a link to her wonderful work. Shown here are her panels, which are heat transfers onto maple board. To see more of these (plus her clothing and print work), have a look here. She has a solo show coming up in June, too, so if you're in San Francisco be sure to drop by for a look.
Portuguese designer Rosa Pomar has a lovely online shop of baby slings, ribbons, bags, and postcards - plus these absolutely charming dolls, which I'm quite taken with. I think the grayest morning would be instantly transformed upon finding this little creature in the mailbox, smiling a sweet flowery smile (though you'll have to be a bit patient, as the dolls are out of stock at the moment). In the meantime, you can have a look at Rosa's other great designs here. Via matéria prima.
