Iran do Espírito Santo.

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

A very welcome discovery, Iran do Espírito Santo. Everyday forms made more precious through materials and by being taken out of their original context. Who knew a circular piece of brick wall could be so appealing? Iran did, that’s why we like him.

Pencil works.

Today we saw this very brilliant pencil set. Currently a one off, it consists of brass fittings which turn the pencils into a magnifying glass, knife, eraser, file, saw, spirit level etc. So nicely made and super useful too. By staff & pupils from Northumbria University.

Other favourites include solid gold screws, blankets embroidered with silver to look like paint spatter & old pieces of wood inlaid with brass splinters. More here & here

A perfect match.

The Brussel Expo 58 blog has lots of great things on it, we’re particularly taken with their collection of old vinyl. Check out all of the building photos too. We’ll take the lot! Thanks to @kkconkers for the tip off.
