Sebastian Weiss is a photographer, and a photo columnist at Architectural Digest Germany, based in Hamburg, Germany. His architectural photos are stunning, and I love how he really captures the essence of a building, and does it in a very minimal way.
Wonder which camera he’s using. My guess is he’s using an iPhone, but can’t confirm.

Atelier Ernst + Ursula Hiestand was formed in 1960 by Swiss designers Ernst Hiestand and Ursula Hiestand, and continued until 1981. The studio was a member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale, and in the late 60s they designed six new Swiss banknotes. Their work is inspiring.

Wonderful minimalist home in Cape Town designed by Gavin Maddock Design Studio. I’m especially in love with the design of the front of the house. Simple, geometric shapes and lines paired with the white exterior and wooden garage door.
Happy New Year! I’m back from a needed vacation, fully rested. Hope everyone had a great holiday season.
Birds of Minnesota is a project by designer Tony Buckland, that highlights the birds found in the state. Each bird is illustrated in a minimal way without losing its essence. Really lovely collection.
