Su Blackwell

Surely you have seen on many magazines the magic and poetic work of Su Blackwell. This English artist wants to communicate “the precariousness of the world we inhabit and the fragility of our life, dreams and ambitions”. With her book-cut sculptures and installations she certainly brings us to another dimension. To be seen soon at the Long & Ryle Gallery, London.

Pecha Kucha Night

{photo from}

I could finally take part to my first Pecha Kucha Night.

For the one of you who do not know, the Pecha Kucha are evenings where architects, designers, artists and creative people can meet for show and discuss their works. Each speaker can show 20 images, each image will stay for 20 seconds. The discussion stays fast and fresh.

The name Pecha Kucha is Japanese for "sound of conversation", the architects studio Klein Dytham did patent the idea and now you can attend these nights all around the world.

Beeing someone who talks a lot myself I like the idea to be short and clear, the evening was extremely interesting!!

Hop! Design

Just presented in London, during 100% Design, is this Shanghai wall pipes, designed by Hop! Design Studio. This dinamic Italian studio thought about a multifunctional and transversal system to subdivide spaces. I think it is a great way to solve the privacy issues in interiors. The Shanghay wall pipes are also available in different colors and sizes.

Sand & Birch are actually the italian designers Andrea Fina, with background in law and communication, and Samanta Snidaro, with background in architecture and graphics. Olivia will be launched at Maison & Object in Paris the coming January 2009.
