memphis-styled sound.

I love these images for Bang + Olufsen’s latest range, featuring the work of photographer Phillip Karlberg (it’s worth a look at his portfolio, with stunning photographs for Kasthall, amongst others). The products, all angular shapes and luxe materials – brushed aluminium, oak and black, are styled against a palette of white marble, blush pink, vibrant blue and pale silver.

There are distinct references to the Memphis movement, which is having a moment in interior and product design, but without the flamboyance. A sort of minimal, refined post-modernism. I think its a great look, what about you?

Tagline: impossible things before breakfast.

A bird cage in which you can swing freely, a rocking chair and cot in one, a table you can play marbles on. With wonderful names like Cageling and Rockid, these are fairy tales ideas made possible. Made up of a duo who studied together at the Design Academy in Eindhoven and based in the Netherlands. Ontwerpduo take their own and other people’s ideas and make them into reality.

I love the wit and fantasy and charm of these objects. And the optimism, that anything is possible. What about you?

Love this range of tables by Paris-based designer Constance Guisset (not to mention the owl styling..) Originally designed in 2009 for the French Cultural Institute in Ankara, Turkey, the Ankara collection is all metal in a range of colours. More, here

I wrote about another of Constance Guisset’s products, the Vertigo pendant, here.
