Need a Bag?

I am a bag-alcholic, I have many and I dream of some more.
So I found these great velvet bags, designed by Annalisa Gatti, and I immediately loved them.
See all the collection at Tullipa, where you can also buy them.

TUB design

OK, I told you a while ago that I would have a special eye for Italian design, well TUB Design is from my area, Liguria, so I am even more happier to introduce you their works. For example this project called "Spaghino" is a tread which will keep your bread bag well closed and the bread fresh, because yes it is important to have fresh bread! Ah I am from Genoa, just in case you are curious.

I saw these beautiful pieces made in porcelain on the Etsy shop of Elementclaystudio.
The artisit finds inspiration by nature and you can see her taste and capability to work with clay in these products.

Made by Meta

The Mallet Gallery, with galleries in London and New York, realized that many clients where more and more interested in design.
They decided to create Meta, a line of limited products made with the best artisans but with an eye on contemporary design, in order to answer to their clients demands.
Their first range of products was launched in Milan, last week, more pieces will be presented at the coming ICFF in NY.
They worked with the best international designers and craftmans, images of their work can be seen here.

Just recently I found the beautiful funiture collections of Mac Ma Mau. This a a young studio formed by two Italian siters, Ilaria and Sara. They combine their backgrounds, architecture and illustration, for producing special pieces. They use wooden and steel structures coated with laminate, painted, engraved or patinated.
