Studio Ilse does. They are interested in a holistic approach to spaces, 'modern and emotional'. Too much to write here!

Noe Duchaufour Lawrence. Not that his designs aren't beautiful enough on their own, but just so we know who we're dealing with here.
So ok, back to design. This Frenchman became well known for his designs at Sketch in London, my very favorite place in the world. Those white pods are actually individual toilets, have you ever seen such unique bathrooms? Amazing.
These designs have an organic quality, curved soft forms, handcrafted quality. Beautiful.

Can a new dinner set be created from donated plates?
Can a restaurant gather ingredients straight from the forest?
Can something new come out of foraging the old?
The Finnish Institute in London is delighted to announce HEL YES!, a temporary restaurant and exhibition imagined and realised by a creative team of Finnish designers and food visionaries; lead by Antto Melasniemi together with London-based designers Mia Wallenius and Klaus Haapaniemi. Unveiled in mid-September during London Design Festival 2010, HEL YES! will serve as a melting pot of people and ideas for 14 days.
I have been thinking about London today and how I still miss it. Wish I could go to the Design Festival this year, oh well, will have to just visit it 'online' instead.

What a great find these wallpapers are! Minakani is a Paris based studio and create the most chic patterns for textiles and wallcoverings, don't you think? I love the first one 'carpathes' it's dark and moody with bursts of colour and I love the scale of these. Stunning.

'Swarm Light' by rAndom International / Design Miami / Art Basel 2010 from rAndom International on Vimeo.
Take a moment to watch this video. Beautiful, clever, inspiring.
This lighting installation was exhibited in June and is by Random International, a trio of designers based in the UK. From their website:
Working from the fringes of art, design, science and architecture, rAndom are developing projects and installations that re-interpret the ‘cold’ nature of digital-based work and emphasise the interaction between the animate (audience) and the inanimate object, bringing the two into a powerful sense of aesthetic relation.
