let there be light

3 Oct

nesting in the beautiful, labyrinthine rooms of the farmiloe building, the sculptural jumble of futuristic cut-out silhouettes that make up nadine spencer’s lamp installation beckons you into a world of lights and shadows.

making letters- dalton ghetti

27 Sep

london’s welcomed us back with a huge array of exciting offerings, including a chance to check out american-based dalton ghetti’s beautiful miniature alphabet sculptures.

carved into the tips of almost-finished pencils, each letter is a testimony to the labouring patience of the craftsman- injecting new life into almost discarded objects.

the piece is on show at the v&a as part of its fantastic ‘the power of making’ exhibition- a must for crafters, innovators and general wow-hunters.

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.

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.
