tropicalia – orlanda broom

18 Aug


love the colour explosions of london-based artist orlanda broom’s tropical landscapes: a romantic cacophony of wild colours and fecund shapes finished in a glasslike texture.

on show until the end of the month at london’s stephanie hoppen gallery

la selva- carnovsky

16 Aug

dreaming of getting lost in these amazing wallpapers and prints by italy-based design duo carnovsky.

the intricate patterns reveal further depths depending on the colour prism under which you scrutinise- a bit of rgb detective work, and the perfect backdrop for a g&t and a chat.

a good excuse to go night-life hunting in shoreditch, if you ever needed one.

on show until september 21st at jaguarshoes.

nevereverending – peter coffin

25 Jul

what better than a monday to remind us of the inexorable, often absurd circularity of time.

american artist peter coffin’s spiral staircase lets your brain climb around it in an escherian loop that evokes the drudgery of the hamster wheel.

happy new week-

norwegian wood

a little bird told me that deep in the norwegian forest near the fjords in the west coast hides a true gem: the juvet landscape hotel.

the eye is drawn away from the ten minimalist, sparsely decorated huts and to the dramatic glass walls opening onto beautiful wooded scenery complete with a meandering river.

the installations include a spa, and common and dining areas in an old, tastefully restored farm house, and the all-encompassing company of nature in this secluded, privileged spot.
