Leslie Oschmann - Swarn

I love Anthropologie, so when I read that Leslie Oschmann, former Anthropologie visual director, did start her own creative studio in Amsterdam I had immediately to visit her website. Wauu, what a wonderful work I found there. Leslie gives a new life and meaning to simple vintage findings. I love each piece, and the attention for the details.

AMT - Alissia Melka-Teichroew

These beautiful pieces are the work of Alissia Melka Teichroew, a designer based in NY.
Alissia Melka-Teichroew had the idea of creating a ball joint -normally assembled with separate parts- as one single piece. Through the use of selective laser sintering she was able to literally make a ball inside a ball. Hence, the industrial connecter was transformed into an object of beauty and wonder.A clean and striking jewelry collection was created around this innovative concept. Each piece has been made with the same technique: it seems like an intricately assembled object but is in fact one single piece that was made in one go. Check more Alissia work here.

Kai Linke

Green & Eco design is everywhere nowdays, but these chairs, by designer Kai Linke, are really poetic, I would love to have one. The designer explains:  " Roots of plants have been directed to fill out a form on different nutrient mediums over a period of time. After filling out the form completely, similar to a flower in a too small pot, it is then removed and a root shaped like a table or a chair is left. "
