FINALISTS FOR THE MODERN WORLD AWARDS!


We got chosen by dwell as one of the finalists for the modern world awards in the category "PLAY" with our "DRUNK"!
Here is their info :

"We are proud to announce the first ever Modern World Awards and Ceremony this year at Dwell on Design. Every day we scour the wide world of design for the best products, objects, and furniture for our magazine and website. And now we are very happy to stamp our seal of approval on our favorite 25 designs from the last year and a half at the first Modern World Awards exhibit and Ceremony.

The awards will be handed out in a special presentation at Dwell on Design at 5:00 on June 24th. If you can't make it, don't fret. The 25 designs will be exhibited on the show floor throughout the three days of Dwell on Design.

Taken directly from the pages of Dwell, the five finalists we've selected in in five different categories best encompass our take on how the modern world, and how good design improves it. Whether at work or play, at rest or on the go, these are the designs that matter most. As usual, we're looking for innovation, clever use of materials, sustainable design, and that je ne sais quois that makes us say, "I gotta get one of those."

DANISH DESIGN-I LIKE IT! EXHIBITION



Jasper Morrison, my favourite Designer, curated an exhibition on Danish design in Copenhagen's Design Museum Denmark.The exhibition is a hand-picked selection of all-star Danish furniture classics that belong to the museum's extensive collection. Morrison's viewpoint has culminated in a selection of pieces that work to embody the classic and humane qualities that make up Danish design - a process he reveals to be more complex than initially anticipated.



'It is a very condensed selection - you've probably notice how jammed everything is', he explains, 'On the first day when we started, I was a bit worried we wouldn't have enough stuff, but by the end, we were just pushing things in and just moving things around, trying to squeeze them all in'. The exhibition has been set up in collaboration with Danish textile heavyweight Kvadrat, and Morrison has lined the panels of the exhibition's walls with Hallingdal, a textile designed in 1965 by Danish designer Nanna Ditzel, and one that has adorned countless design classics - from pieces by the likes of Fritz Hansen to Morrison himself. Copenhagen, here we come!
