DESIGN / moak clock by studio ps

Dutch design, neon, concrete, wood, rawIt's always nice, if a product tells something about it's function during it's design and materials. That is something which Peter van de Merwe and Sanne Zeeman from Studio PS try to achieve with their new beautiful clock which they developed during the last time. The Moack clock combine a twofold function of showing time and being an appealing object in itself.

PHOTOGRAPHY / kevin tadge

Dog, Water, Fur

Photography is always a game of perception. The photographers view and composition 
create something, which is new and will sometimes never find an opposite in real life. 
The Brooklyn based photographer and film maker Kevin Tadge built his photographic work on this fact. Kevin shoots objects, things and situations which seem mundane on the first glance but he imparts personalty in every image, regardless whether landscape or object of nature.

JEWELRY / vowel

Designers are image-makers. They focus on something which already exists and try to set it up in a new context. Sometimes the output is intriguing and beautiful at the same time. So is AEIOUY, a project by Beau Bertens and Eline Ceelen. Both trained as textile and graphic designers collaborate both under the name VOWEL and create beautiful and sometimes absurd jewelry.

ART / jeffrey dell

screen-printing, technique, color, gradient, cake

If you want to create something unique start with simple things. American artist Jeffrey Dell did so: After his Master in Fine Arts from the University of New Mexico he focussed on screen-printing and … cake. This weird combination work very well: Dell's screenprints are minimal but spectacular at the same time. The San Marco based artist combines clear forms, bold colors and a huge palette of screen-printing skills to create prints which create a real competition to digital images.

Most of the time we pay our attention to the fantastic things in life: beauty, entertainment and spectacle. But what take a lot more influence on us is the ordinary and quotidian. Sometimes should it be more productive to draw our attention to the trivial details in our life to start something new and creative. Tina and Nikita Sutradhar, founders of the Mumbai-based luxury clothing and accessories label MIUNIKU, did exactly this to find a starting point for their second collection after graduation from the London College of fashion.

FASHION / yumumu spring summer 2014

The Man with the Compound Eyes, dress, pattern, dark

Fashion exist in a cosmos of words. The words which describes the delicate textiles the clothes are made of, the words which describe the visual references of a collection, the words which describe the feeling of the clothes. Sometimes is fashion directly influenced by words, like the new Spring/Summer collection of the Singapore based fashion label Yumumu: The designer Lu Yilin becomes who found her inspiration often in various fiels of art and design draws the inspiration of her current collection directly from the novel "The Man with the Compound Eyes" from the Taiwanese author Wu Ming-Yi.
