Happy “I made it for you” Day!

This Valentine’s Day I’d like to celebrate handmade gifts. And on that short note here’s a love letter to hand made from Nicole Licht and the folks at Etsy:

A calendar to keep you craving

So it’s September, which means 2012 calendars are going to start popping up everywhere. This one by Hamburg-based design office¬†EIGA (for purchase here) is a weekly celebration of food-related art and design. Definitely on the spectacular side, with loads of handmade type: syrup, sushi, banana peels, moldy bread, tattooed eggs, bacon strips, are all made into beautifully extravagant numbers.

The one problem I see: I’d be hard-pressed to scribble all over this beauty.

A sensual concert

As part of the London Design Festival, The Finnish Institute in London has produced an installation titled Reddress. A sumptuous dress will serve as a costume for songstress Emma Salokoski, and its 20-meter-wide skirt will accommodate the spectators, who can sit or lie on it, even use it as a blanket. Talk about a sensual experience: the intimacy of the concert, to be close and connected to the performer and the rest of the audience in such a tangible way, the visual saturation… a great way to bring the music alive!

The best bit is: no worries if you checked in your jacket and the hall is a bit cold, just relax and tuck yourself in.
