Bloesem Friday, 4 March 2016 by Irene Hoofs We're officially moving to our new online platform, BloesemDesign.com! *throws confetti and pops champagne* It's been a long time coming and we're beyond thrilled to finally share with you guys this big step we're taking. Can't believe it's been almost 10 years since I started this blog as a space to share my interior inspirations.. So it sure feels pretty surreal to think how this blog has progressed and blossomed to a full-service creative studio complete with an amazing team behind it. Furniture Taula is a perforated multifunctional table, created by Spanish studio Adretcient. The bottom layer of the tabletop has holes for planters.

Taula is made of birch and can serve as a desk or a dining table. Photography by Guifré de Peray

It is easily one of the hardest kinds just because of the sheer amount of unexpected drama with the kids. It is also one of the most popular kind of photography too. You see baby photography all around. This gives you an idea... 7 Tips For Rapid Iteration (aka The Quirky Approach) My career has been all about rapid iteration – generating lots of ideas and then quickly testing them to find the ones worth pursuing. My latest project is Quirky, which aims to develop a new product every week with the help of an active community of participants and a committed in-house design team. Quirky has rapidly accelerated the traditional product development cycle, but perhaps the better example of rapid iteration is how I have launched three businesses in five years. Five years may not sound like very rapid anything, but trust me, it was. In the spirit of the 99U, I want to share some of the tenets I live by – the ones that have enabled us to accelerate product development and make so many ideas materialize.

Ora-Ïto's Nikeames trainer is an homage to Charles and Ray French designer Ora-Ïto has developed a conceptual trainer with curved veneer sections to reference the work of Modernist furniture designers Charles and Ray Eames. Ora-Ïto pays tribute to the late American couple with the Nikeames shoe design, which he imagines could be produced by sports brand Nike. The wooden sections designed to wrap around the shoe take influence from the moulded plywood shell of the Eames Lounge 670 armchair, designed for Herman Miller in 1956. "It's an an homage to Charles and Ray Eames' Lounge chair – the most famous one with the wooden shell," Ïto told Dezeen. "The idea was to make a Nike Eames, like the Nike Air but playing with the Eames, translating the language and the forms and the aesthetic of the Eames armchair into a trainer." The shoe would be formed from two layers, with the dark wooden panels on the base, upper and heel curving around a black Goretex slipper.
The Flight From Conversation At home, families sit together, texting and reading e-mail. At work executives text during board meetings. We text (and shop and go on Facebook) during classes and when we’re on dates.

Over the past 15 years, I’ve studied technologies of mobile connection and talked to hundreds of people of all ages and circumstances about their plugged-in lives.

Lego targets architects with monochrome brick set News: Danish toy company Lego has launched Lego Architecture Studio – a new set of building blocks aimed at the architecture and design community. The Lego Architecture Studio set comprises over 1,200 pieces of 76 unique components, from chamfered wedge-shaped blocks to simple bricks, designed to give as much freedom and creativity to the maker as possible. "Anyone with an interest in architecture can now create their own Lego original designs, as well as building mini architectural masterpieces such as the Eiffel Tower and the Trevi Fountain," said a statement from Lego. The new design, which became available in the UK and Europe for the first time this month, has eschewed Lego's typical bold primary colours for a monochromatic scheme of white and transparent elements.
Smart, dumb, candybar, flip, and brick: a visual history of mobile phones For most of their history, mobile phones have been shrinking. Small meant portable; it even, in the not too distant past, was a sort of status symbol. Remember Motorola’s runaway hit, the ultra-thin Razr? But something funny happened on the smartphone’s way to success.
