Today is the day Serge hits the big screen whoop whoop!
Here are a few links to my favourite tracks on you tube..I was unable to embed Melody Nelson but its Gainsbourg at his best..there is so much more to his music than 'je t'aime moi non plus'..the half french in me declares him a legend.

I like this 'family of chairs' by Lina Nordquist, available to buy at design house stockholm ( you may recognise a few cos items when browsing)...anyway we are so used to buying a set of identical chairs, this is a refreshing idea as despite all being unique they are from the same family, a foursome of traditional Swedish stickback chairs, Separately presententing themselves as individuals...lovely.
'Trift explores the ideal of perfect, high-gloss surfaces by creating and destroying them within the same object.' Judith seng.
I have to admit however I was drawn to this work on a more basic level ...I just find them to be aesthetically beautiful objects...
Slightly confused by Perrocali but I love this stripy cutlery!..they also sell footballs?
What is Perrocaliente?
"Perrocaliente" is a hot dog in Spanish.
"Perro" means "dog.” And "caliente" means "warm."
In a word, "hot dog" in English has been translated literally into Spanish.
The brand name was chosen by the charm sound and the comfortably loose etymology.
..so there you go then...!
Some really lovely Identity work on the A Friend Of Mine site. This particular project is for a weaving company and I love the amount of thought that has gone into the final print Job. The modern flower company project makes an appearance on Suzy's site too as she used to work over at multistory before setting up her own Melbourne based design practice.
I remember stumbling across the com-pa-ny site a long time ago and foolishly not bookmarking it...for a while I thought it was lost forever!! until mr von found it for me this morning. My favourite product was, and still is the dancing shoes..a nostalgic memory of childhood for most of us..but the whole site has so many endearing and slightly bizarre products its well worth a look.
Mater have an interesting philosophy and output, I like this High stool.

Christopher Bettig runs a studio called The Mountain label. I like his output because it is so varied, you won't see any editorial illustration on this site, I personally like his installation work, attached is some for Candy store which caught my eye.
