Where we’ve been this week…
1. Japanese Design for its coverage of architecture, furniture and object design. The fish-inspired mobile by Riki Watanabe is beautiful (below). The landing page isn’t all that inspiring – but you’ll be rewarded with minimal text and luscious photography if you click through to the stories.
2. NYC Guide by Australian interiors stylist Glen Proebstel. This guy has an eye for all things cool and now puts together a covetable newsletter – the latest issue was devoted to NYC. His blog is also worth checking out. Lots of great interior inspiration there.
3. Yatzer for the amazing workspace and home of Ricardo Bofill (below).
4. Arch Daily is always a great place to visit for new work. The Standless Steel house/shed/art work by FAS(t) architects caught my eye. The walls look like they are made of water but they are actually hung with hundreds of chains.
5. Automatism for the tour of Stefan (below) and Nicole Andrén’s Portland, Oregon home.
7. Architizer for the Hill House. An amazing white cube set on a hill overlooking Rustic Canyon in Los Angeles (below).
8. Design Notes by Michael Surtees. Surtees is the principal of Gesture Theory and this blog covers his musings on technology, design and living in NYC. I love his post on the Picasso poster made up of scan code (pic below).
9. @issue for its coverage of the cool U-Socket (below), which is a duplex AC receptacle that includes a built-in USB port. It can power any device that is capable of being charged via a 5V power adapter.
