Where They Create - Book

Before things are styled for visual consumption, are the spaces in which ideas are created and turned into reality. These are the spaces that I like the most and the spaces that Paul Barbara photographs and then documents on Where They Create.

A few years ago, I found Where They Create and now after re-visiting his website, there are over 80 artists' spaces to peruse through and am excited to see that Where They Create is coming out in book this September - published by FRAME.
Very exciting!

You could spend hours looking through all of the spaces.....definitely no lack of inspiration. Decided to focus on Poland because you don't seem to hear about Poland so often. Last year, I was in Poland and visited both Warsaw and Wroclaw (plus a few others), so these pictures feel almost sentimental to me. Although I didn't stay at either of these spaces, the Warsaw space is almost a dead ringer for Pav's house.........Makes me miss Poland just a little........

Studios: Anka Mderzejewska - Wroclaw Poland and Little Studio - Warsaw Poland.

Form us with Love - design studio

Form us with Love is a Swedish based design firm that collaborates heavily with local Swedish manufacturers.
Finding this company was really on accident. I stumbled across some pictures of their new design studio in Stockholm. The photo above is one of the first pictures I saw and was completely taken with it. In fact, that photo alone could suffice all my needs, but I decided to check out their website and was happily amazed at all of their work. Truly amazing stuff - please check them out.

Above are some photos of their recent work from 2011.
Making of the 'Hood' (finished product shown in the first photo), Work Lamp LJ and Hexagon (woodwool cement board).

This photo made me smile and reminds me of my dear friend who was living in an old store front a few years ago.. Comprising of one big room, it was both home and garage to a few motorcycles. This photo may be styled, but it is closer to life than one may think.
