Anne Dérian, an architect by trade, is the force behind these beautiful mosaic art pieces. Originally from France, Anne now lives in Berlin and does mosaics on commission basis. In times where everything is about speed, I find incredible beauty in the slowness and thoughtfulness that the mosaic process represents. I’d hire her in a heart beat.
What a beautiful bottle opener this is! Wow! How perfect when a mundane object like a bottle opener has such decorative and sculptural qualities.
The Lumio Book Lamp is the most magical product I have come across in a long time. When I opened it in my studio yesterday everyone went wwwoooooaaaah! It is truly stunning.
When shut, Lumio masquerades as an elegant wood hardcover book. When opened, it magically transforms into a sculptural light illuminated by a high-performing LED.
Sending a virtual hug to the inventor Max Gunawan. And just like that, Lumio has become my favorite object.
I happend to stumble upon Adam Frank’s Lucid Mirror at NYNOW and it took my breath away. It’s a stunning décor mirror that places luminous 3D sunrays illuminating clouds behind the plane of the reflective surface. Viewers can ‘touch’ the illusion with their reflected image.
The above image doesn’t do it justice. It’s magical. Believe me.
What a beautiful modern globe. It came out of a collaboration between Monocle and Nendo Watanabe. Major cities are marked in bold type on a black and silver background. I’d give it a home!
We have these IKEA kids stools at home and I love them. I just discovered these Fairy Ring Cushion pillows that are made for them. Adorable.
I am a huge fan of soft boiled eggs on Sunday mornings. This is the most stylish egg holder I have come across so far: Eierbecher Set Eiche. #wishlisted
I am slowly but surely developing a slight obsession for all things ‘moon’. This Moon Night Light is fueling the fire. (Also comes as Earth)
It’s getting chilly here in NYC which reminded me of Pia Wallen’s beautiful Cross Blankets.
Not a big fan of desktop organizers, but this one won my heart: Porcelain containers shaped to look like a post-industrial urban neighborhood of warehouses and factories. Congrats to the designer Héctor Serrano.
What a beauty of a quilt. Congrats to the designer Sherri Lynn Wood who developed a bias strip curve patchwork technique for this quilt. Free-cut continuous bias strips were machine pieced to create the curved lines. Large curved segments were then hand appliqued to the strip pieced back ground.
