Plenty of colour

Plenty of colour
I love The Muppets (and I mean I really love The Muppets). It’s hard not to be smitten with this great cover by Variety Magazine — flip an iconic face (and colour scheme) and a whole new perspective is born.

BEST OF MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2016 This in fact leads us to making mention of the pastel toned colour way which kept appearing all about town: all the way from HAY’s multicoloured presentation inside La Pelota - which inspired thoughts of 1950’s-era candy shops - to Patricia Urquiola’s console and mirror from the SHIMMER series she created for Glas Italia. Unsurprisingly, Patricia was a very busy designer this season - to prove our point we must note the incredible CREDENZA collection that she collaborated on with Federico Pepe on for Spazio Pontaccio which was inspired by the stained glass windows of holy sites. Marble seemed to be another trend at this Salone, especially black Marquina marble which appeared in everything from Apparatus Studio’s Portal marble dining table, to the small, Niobe side tables designed by Federica Capitani for Zanotta, not to mention the Mr. Marble jar which was designed by Lorenza Bozzoli exclusively for the 10 by Yatzer collection.

London Cloth Company Revives The Lost Craft Of Loom Weaving – iGNANT.de From the rescue of a rusting loom in a Welsh barn to 41 tons of machinery weaving endless yards of fabric for export around the globe, the story of the London Cloth Company is a captivating tribute to the hard work, vision and determination of the gregarious Daniel Harris. Accompanied by his cat, Flo Rida, in his workshop – located in an old air force hangar on an industrial estate in Epping, London – Harris spent a chilly but sun-dappled morning introducing us to his world of weaving with the industrial machinery he single-handedly rescued and restored. The London Cloth Co is the city’s first micro-mill. How did it all begin? “I started off with one loom, and now I’ve got 41 tonnes or machinery, at least.
