A ceramic trivet from the Australian retailer, Country Road. Pretty yellow.
A lovely illustration for the Washington Post Magazine’s 2012 year-end issue, which recounted the lives of 6 recently deceased local citizens, by the Berlin-based studio, Ariane Spanier Design.
Must Say this is a sumptuous number 6, screened onto a porcelain plate at Do, the shop at Tokyo’s Hotel Claska.
It’s not every day that a 62 year-old female director makes the cover of Time magazine, and rarer still for a memorable piece of copy to find its way there. But this week’s Time goes arty and literary (though I really, really wish they had let that excellent headline stand alone).
Must hand it to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Diffusing the gravitas and reverence of the great Vincent’s public image is no easy feat. But they’ve cleverly managed it with the subtle humor of this ad campaign for the museum cafe–which features a still life image that’s, well, almost perfect.
The plus sign-shaped slot on this piggy bank caught my attention. The matte white and abstracted form are quite fine, too.
Turkey, bacon, gruyere cheese, tomato, iceberg lettuce, and dijon mayonnaise. Sounds like a New Yorker to me. The sandwich, that is, being offered by the London cafe chain, Benugo, which has just undergone a branding makeover that includes cute visuals, like this poster.
Bicycle handlebar grips were the inspiration for these LED torches (flashlights) designed by the British designer Alexander Taylor. And Yves Klein blue (and a variety of other vibrant hues) will stand out nicely in a sea of generic tools.
