Ivanka Beton’s Hübler Applied Literature project inserting out of print, outdated political books a project in conjunction with Hungarian concrete artist and designer János Hübler is part of the Hidden Heroes 2010 exhibit at Salone del Mobile 2010 (www.hublerjanos.com). Reminds me of a grown up version of the fairytale like work of recent grad Holly Palmer shown at LDF last year and featured on this site.
Sarah Turner hits the big time with her debut at Salone Del Mobile. Her decorative lighting made from used plastic beverage bottles feel more elegant than most recycled design items I come across. They don’t have a trace of rough edge or a gritty statement sensibility which feels like a nice change of pace.
I especially like this – Sarah visits schools and teaches kids. Most creative people find ways to provide additional services using their creativity, which is great and as it should be, but this is the absolute best way. I wonder what percentage of total emotional reward comes from days like these for the young designer? Is it the press and accolades that makes her most satisfied or traveling home after a morning teaching kids to make a lampshade?

Joanna Grawunder‘s mirror for Glass Italia – colored glass and a reflecting glass (a mirror). Simple but very bright and very inventive. A piece that makes you wonder why it didn’t already exist. I think it would look great in a white room with black accent pieces and no other color, acting as the focal point.”]

Wonderful photo taken at the Salone del Mobile going on now in Milan, from the “Kris’s Color Stripes” blog by Kristina Klarin. She has one of the best blogs I’ve ever seen for color inspiration. The photographs are as good as the palettes. She’s a designer with one hell of an eye and sensitivity.”0 Comments
