    Red Kiosk

    Retired obstacles with a new meaning.

    Nieves Zines

    New zines from the Swiss publishing house.

    I’ve always loved the idea of zines. In our visually oversaturated, over-commercialized society, especially, the lo-fi, DIY quality of zines has always appealed to me, as well as their more immediate artistic approach. Among the best zine publishers, in my opi...

    Handturned Wooden Objects by Jonathan Leech

    Natural beauty and contemporary design.

    I often prefer a “less is more” approach when it comes to wooden objects. As such, I often gravitate towards simple, minimalist designs that allow the wood to express its own qualities, including any natural edges, knot-holes, burrs and other naturally-occurri...

    Lens Box by Wrong for Hay

    Elegant boxes for daily use.

    Theres a wormhole in my pocket, and occasionally random things spill out, like a 2-months old receipt from KFC; a bunch of coins from different countries; business cards that I have exchanged from press activities; usually I have already forgotten who these pe...

    Life happened.

    What do we use to approach the unfamiliar things in life? Our eyes are our first gateway, where it helps us recognize the prototypes of different things. Then, we touch with our hands, we caress, we care and we sometimes push away, an instinct that was nursed ...
