Ah, there’s something about a beautifully illustrated logo–which this self-initiated mark from the Manchester (UK)-based design agency United Creatives most certainly is.
Harper’s Bazaar magazine has issued 3 delicious limited-edition covers for their April issue, all featuring colorful patterns from fashion house Emilio Pucci. A project spawned by a partnership with the Victoria & Albert Museum, and in honor of the V&A’s current exhibition, The Glamour of Italian Fashion, the covers showcase previously unpublished original drawings from Pucci’s ’60s and ’70s archives–and are only available for sale at the V&A museum shop.
If there’s a more refined, beautifully crafted S Hook in existence–and one that makes a more convincing case for copper as metal of choice–I’m not aware of it. Now, to invent a reason to spend $36 on this 6.25″ number…
When you assign the name Flamingo to something, you’re bound to raise expectations–and Italian designer Marco Guazzini delivers on that promise. His Flamingo is a pastel-hued console table defined by drawers that slide open in traditional fashion, but also move along its length, allowing for a variety of configurations and surface areas. Guazzini looked to Miami’s Art Deco-informed color palette for inspiration, but reduces the tones down to a level as sublime as the table’s reductive profile. Alas, Flamingo, which debuted at the recently-concluded Milan Design Week, remains a prototype only, but fingers are crossed that it flies its way to market (and into our lives).
A dish rack that takes its form from a patch of grass isn’t exactly novel, and if it goes for a cool $160, it better have something else going for it. That something is, in the case of Sod, a drying rack from Austin’s design shop Finell, a long, skinny profile that’s either ingenious or utterly useless, and a stainless steel tray that matches its pale grey flexible blades. Arty drinkware not include.
