Camilla Akrans has instantly become one of my favorite photographers. Her images are simple, interesting and the colors are dreamy. Beautiful.
Hey Studio in Spain continues to impress me. These communication pieces for Teatre CCCB really caught my attention. At first glance the design seems very simple, but the mix of muted colors, bold black outlines and type really make this pieces stand out.
It’s good to be back. Hope everyone had a great week.
While I was away, lifestyle brand Nooka released this super minimal, ridiculously stylish sunglasses. The shades feature a polymer injected frame, blue lenses with silver mirror finish and are available in 6 fancy colors.
I’m a huge fan of Nooka, and with the Mercury they continue their simple approach in both aesthetic and construction. It’s a great addition to their already excellent lineup. Matt and crew are drinking the good stuff over there.
“Good design is as little design as possible.”
Damn right. Words to live by.
Dieter Rams is one of the most influential industrial designers of this past century. Jonathan Ive, Senior Vice President of Industrial Design at Apple, is heavily influenced by Rams’ work. You can see huge similarities between Apple and classic Braun products in their simplicity, beauty and function.
From November 18 – March 14, The Design Museum in London is having an exhibition titled “Dieter Rams Less and More“. The exhibition will showcase Rams’ inspiring designs for Braun and Vitsœ. I might have to head to London just to see this.
