TRAVELING SUITCASE BY HANEMAII



Discovered by Les Jeunes Gens Modernes :

"Tell me what you bring with you in your suitcase, and I will tell you who you are.

Soon graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (in The Netherlands), in the department of Textile Design, Jolien Hanemaaijer uses her experience with traveling as a an important theme in her work. By examining what she calls “homing process”, she imagined two portable objects that have the double function of a suitcase and a show display, which allow you to bring with you your favorite stuff that can hardly be left behind! Perfect dream tools for what Hanemaai names “modern-day adventurers”.

“This project started from a personal experience of extensive traveling and having to live out of one suitcase. Choices had to be made about what to bring and what to leave behind. While making these choices was hard it also made it possible to get rid of unnecessary things. The important and good items that you decide to bring are the objects that define your identity.”

Materials: Beech, leather, metal and elastic bands

Dimensions: 40 x 21 x 80 cm

Production: Formholz and Hanemaai

DINNERTIME AT THE BAUHAUS


We love the Ittala Teema Serving plates designed by Heikki Orvola and Kaj Franck. Heikki Orvola is one of the driving forces within Finnish design. He works in glass, ceramics, cast iron and textiles. Orvola has worked for the industrial art business, but he has also worked in a variety of different materials as a form of pure, artistic expression.Kaj Franck is described as the conscience of Finnish design. He removed everything excessive in his designs, leaving only the essentials.

WE LOVE ... FOG LINEN WORK



... and Yumiko Sekine, the designer. Yumiko Sekine started her first business in 1993 importing used books and house ware from Europe and America to Japan. In her search for more products, she could not find affordable every day linens that she had used during her childhood. She visited Lithuania, a country that grows flax, whose fibers are spun into linen,and has been producing and exporting linen productsto other European countries since the Middle Ages.She was disappointed to find that there were no linen products for daily use available in the stores there. This led her to contact several linen producers and started to have them produce her own product designs in Lithuania.Her first collection started with only seven items. Now after ten years, Fog Linen Work produces a large line of linen products for the home and linen clothing.
