JUST A WANDERING

9 June 2011 by Matthew

So we had a stop in Hamburg a while ago and got a brief glimpse at the city, from the big lake to the little cobbled side streets. Its a very grandiose city indeed with it’s big imposing stone town hall to all the little streets to wander around. Well we had just come out […]

GET OUT OF HERE

Yesterday I did a post on kitchen designs and today its only a part of kitchens but a very important part, the cooker hood or extractor. That thing that’s usually ugly, boxy and noisy with a little added light to try to offset all the down sides, but does it have to be that way? […]

COOKING UP A STORM

27 May 2011 by Matthew

We have done a few posts in the past on kitchens but I found Valcucine and just really loved the designs, modern but not fashionable designs. Maybe it was also the bright colours that I personally think people should embrace more in the kitchen instead of the normal off white or wood. Just look at […]

I have been doing a few posts on furniture recently, some of it was fueled by the Milan Salon and the other because of the couple of days walking around London. Most accessible design seems to be home interior based when it comes to shops. Going on from these posts I thought I would look […]

PERFUME BOTTLES

26 May 2011 by Matthew

Last week I looked at a couple of package designs, a vodka bottle and a cask wine, this got me searching other neat bottle usage that most people will touch and the most expressive is the perfume or aftershave bottle. The variety of shapes is astounding and that comes from the less constrained cost issues […]

YET MORE LONDON EXPLORING

24 May 2011 by Matthew

It’s not that far to walk but works the appetite just enough. But before I got to the cake I walked into OneDeko which specialised in Italian interior design which I noticed had several pieces that I will be showcasing in the coming weeks, Moroso was one. I could have gone into several places but […]

After SCP it was around the corner to the Catlin gallery for up and coming artists in an old tram shed, a great place with size and light in abundance. There were two particular pieces that really stood out to me and for very different reasons the picture above first looked like a great peice […]

STILL EXPLORING LONDON

23 May 2011 by Matthew

So SCP is one of those companies that really does not do them justice in that they are not just the shop, they manufacture and also do complete interior redesigns for clients. But what caught my eye, well just inside the door was some grow bags from Bacsac. I love a garden and think everyone […]

I was out today doing a little hunt for packaging design and came across 2 products that I really like the look of, the first is this bottle of Pure Green Vodka. I am not quite sure why it caught my eye as its only a bottle, but the slim tapering body and the solid base […]
