We present a run down of the places, people and publications that have inspired our daily doings over the past month.
Our friends over at Kemistry Gallery continue their recent run of excellent exhibitions with a new show by Dutch illustrator Stefan Glerum. Entitled High Fives & Good Times, the show includes work that Stefan has produced over the past five years. The colourful collection, which evokes everything from Art Deco and Akira, is on display until August 16th.
The fourth issue of food and culture journal The Gourmand has been one of our favourite reads this month. There is lots of tasty content inside, but our personal highlights include illustrator Alice Tye’s studies of the great food shops that populated Soho during the Seventies (pictured above) and Chris Hatherill’s (of Super/Collider’s out of this world) article about space food.
Another magazine that’s caught our eye lately is Wilder. Each issue of the bi-annual publication celebrates the natural and growing worlds with a selection of articles, interviews and photographs inspired by a particular season. This month, we’ve been enjoying several of their back issues while looking forward to the Wilder Annual – a new, 200+ page book that the team behind the magazine are in the process of putting together.
The Goodhood Lifestore continues to impress us with its carefully curated collection of home-ware accessories. We’re especially grateful to them for bringing Danish brand Ferm Living into our lives. We’re big fans of the bold, black and white geometric designs that are featured across a wide range of their products, including coffee cups (pictured above) and pillows.
You will always find a well-thumbed copy of Apartamento in our office. We love it. The most recent issue has been a big hit with everyone. The article about the important role interior design plays in Wes Anderson films (see above) is particularly brilliant.
Lazy Oaf recently announced their upcoming Autumn 2014 collections, and we’re all pretty taken with the new designs. As with previous collections, the team at Lazy Oaf have employed illustrated motifs and patterns to create a range of truly unique and desirable items. We’re particularly fond of the above ‘Bad Idea’ screen printed t-shirt.
We will be sharing more of our favourite things here next month, so be sure to check back soon.
