    Bisous Les Copains by Guillaume Kurkdjian

    Simple, but captivating animated GIFS.

    As much as I love GIFS -- and the artists who make them -- it’s not often that I see animated images that are simultaneously simple and complex. The young French artist Guillaume Kurkdjian however, pulls off this feat with “Bisous Les Copains,” an ongoing Tumb...

    Apartamento Issue 14

    Everyday life interiors.

    Atelier MUJI: Natural Indigo Dyeing

    Indigo 11.50.

    Indigo dye is an ancient craft and one of the common ways of color dyeing before chemical dyes became popular. When it comes to indigo dye, I always intuitively think that it embodies the spirit of the humane development. Since the finished variation in colors...

    The All White Beats

    Snarkitecture Shop redefines the symbolic headphones.

    As emotional as it sounds, sometimes I roll myself into a physical bundle of flesh at night and blast new music through the Beats by Dre I have. The actual sound quality of these headphones have been debatable, but I completely agree with him that the product ...

    The precious thing from Lyon.

    This strange name is a curious little trick. Pull it apart and the words “mille neuf cent quatre vingt quatre” actually spell out 1984 in French, which is the birth year of the two designers Amélie Charroin and Marie Colin-Madan.

    Baseball Coins Pouch


    The texture of baseballs has always reminded me of the university campus. During the times I walked past the school’s sports field, I would hear distant cheers and applauses for hits and home runs, which became the background music of school days. At times, th...

    The beauty of imperfection.

    I’ve never been a fan of perfection when it comes to art; I find that flaws are much more interesting, and add character and humanity to a work. Ceramics and glassware, in particular, are often great examples of the beauty of imperfection, and my favorite exam...

    On Poetry and Edward Hirsch

    I’ve long had a love-hate relationship with poetry. I was 15 when I started writing creatively, and the same age when I composed my first poem, but it was almost a decade later that I truly gained respect for the art form. Growing up, I dreamed instead of beco...

    500 Colored Pencils by felissimo

    The social ability of drawing tools.

    I used to collect pens when I was small and my pencil case was filled with sparkly glitter pens made in Japan. I would think twice before using them, so my mother, who is just as interested in the aesthetics of stationery as I am, bought me a set of 20 odd pen...
