Gubi Design Icons

these days there’s plenty of fantasising about my new (imaginary and still undiscovered) place going on, which means i’m browsing a lot of websites related to furniture, lighting and all sorts of other fancy designers things that are all completely out of my price range. that’s why it’s called fantasising, guys.

one of them is Gubi – a Danish company that was established in 1976 who has the production rights for various products by design icons from the thirties to the present day. you can browse this collection in their beautiful publication Design Icons Through Time (they also have a magazine and some nifty posters available for download)

The Grossman Collection design by Greta Grossman

The most iconic products Greta Grossman designed in the 40’s and 50’s were the Grasshopper floor lamp and the Cobra floor and table lamps. In 1950, the Cobra lamp won the Good Design Award and was subsequently exhibited at the Good Design Show at the Museum of Modern Art.

The Pedrera Collection designed by Barba Corsini & Joaquim Ruiz Millet

in 1955, Barba Corsini, a leading functionalist architect, realised his contemporary vision through his renovation of the loft space and the furnishings he custom designed for “La Pedrera”. Antoni Gaudi, who originally designed “La Pedrera”, is generally considered the great master of Spanish Modernism but his unique body of work cannot be defined by any single style or simple classification.

The Semi Collection designed by Bonderup & Thorup

The Semi lamp was designed in 1968 as a product of the creative partnership between two architecture students, Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup. Reacting against the ‘cosy era’ that was dominating Denmark at the time, Bonderup and Thorup wanted to create a lamp that incorporated sharp, clean lines and a geometric shape. Their design was submitted for a competition at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture and won first prize.

The Adnet Collection designed by Jacques Adnet

In 1950, Adnet formed a partnership with the French fashion house, Hermes, where he developed a collection of leather-covered furniture and interior accessories, including a distinctive leather mirror with brass hinges. Besides the remarkable leather and brass details, the Adnet mirror is also unique as the strap that holds the mirror is in direct proportion to the dimension of the mirror.

Photo Bomb No.1

if there is a site i browse more than any other it has to be Flickr. i have close to 10,000 favourites on there and i add more every single day. i’m always desperate to share them with you, but most of the time i feel like i need to stick to some kind of mood or have a specific theme in mind when sharing because the blog isn’t supposed to be just a bookmarking site for cool stuff. not today. these are simply some of my recent Flickr favourites – i hope that you discover some great new photographers this way.

edit: i have turned this into a series – explore the photo bomb tag.

Wolcott : Takemoto

i was contacted by Natasha & Joy introducing their new line Wolcott : Takemoto – and what a wonderfully simple and wearable collection it is.

Wolcott : Takemoto was founded by Joy Wolcott and Natasha Takemoto – Seattleites turned Brooklyn dwellers. Natasha studied at FIDM in San Francisco and Joy studied at Seattle Central School of Apparel Design and has interned with Mociun and most recently as a design intern for Rachel Comey for a full season. WT was founded with the notion of creative independence and design integrity with clothing that puts thought towards fit and quality.
