Dreams: part 2

I recently came across Tobias Wong and immediately fell in love with his fun and playful style of products. I liked his 'Indulgence' range as part of 'Just Another Rich Kid', in particular the 'Gold pills' aimed to "turn your innermost parts into chambers of wealth" or make you shit gold! His gold-plated Mcdonalds spoon was also pretty epic.
Tobias Wong died at the age of 35 in a suspected suicide although many believe he hung himself whilst sleep-walking. Whatever happened, Tobias Wong was without doubt a great talent and in his short career brought a lot of happiness to a great number of people whether it be described as design, art or a balance of both.

I have always been very interested in spaces that designers & creatives use when working. Recently I found an article on 'Design Milk' that invites established designers to show their work spaces and talk a little about them. I found this to be quite inspiring and think it is definately worth a read.
Where I work: Brad Ascalon.
Here are a couple of images of his studio.

I also thought their dining tables and benches were pretty cool. They manage to balance simplicity with aesthetics really well and all the timber used in their work has been responsibly sourced. Not bad ey???

I found this on swiss-miss the other day and thought it was a really good idea that kids would love. Think I might have to try it and also see what other creations I can make. I think a trip to Tesco for supplies is in order...

Artist Yayoi Kusama set up this installation at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane and gave thousands of stickers to young visitors. The room was initially kitted out with locally sourced furniture and then painted white to create a 'blank canvas'. The kids were then set free in the room to transform it into a completely different space. I think it worked pretty well... and am now craving some skittles.
Today I found myself with a bit of spare time and thought I'd look on the internet for something to blog on. It wasn't too long before I was watching videos from links of links and I stumbled on these nice little vids.

I found these recently and thought they were pretty amazing. The short videos are really well-shot and follow some pretty cool people making and doing things they love. Especially liked the bit in the knife making vid about working in a studio space with other creatives spending all their time and money into doing what they love and trying to make their dreams a reality. Pretty inspiring stuff.

From the 23-26 January 2011 I exhibited some of my work on the 'New Design Britain' awards stand at the 'Interiors' show, Birmingham. The exhibition is held at the NEC Arena and is the UK's largest trade interiors show. I was awarded the runners up prize in the 'accessories' category and got a lot of positive feedback regarding my work. It was also nice to meet a lot of new people and lots of awesome designers on the stand. The stand looked great, here are a couple of snaps!
