East London design show 2012

Posted on December 12, 2012 by Toothpicker

A more prepared stand this year...
 
I have been so busy preparing for the show that I haven't had time to update the blog until now...
Last December, approximately 6 weeks after the launch, we did the first pop-up shopping event at East London design show. I was sick with flu, missed most of [...]

Kiosk & shops in NYC

Posted on October 22, 2012 by Toothpicker

Quite a few years ago, I discovered the independent concept store, Kiosk, located in Tribeca, NYC. I love the concept of showcasing and selling a range of products sourced during their travels from all over the world in a rotating exhibition format. The sourced products are mostly everyday objects that reflect the [...]

Finnish graphic design

Posted on September 16, 2012 by Toothpicker

Bold graphics can be seen everywhere in Helsinki
 
Not many people are aware of the amount of graphics that surround us in our everyday lives. Yet walking down the streets, we are constantly absorbing messages ( consciously or not) from adverts, signage and banners, there is just no escape.
In Helsinki, it is even [...]

Converse x Marimekko

Posted on July 8, 2012 by Toothpicker

I have a soft spot for Converse even though they are not the most comfortable shoes! My fashion 'dilemma' has always been whether to go for something I really like but not at all practical or something that is just functional or practical. I have gone down both routes, these days I [...]

Popup design shop

Posted on June 26, 2012 by Toothpicker

I can't say that I have been very aggressive ( it's not so natural for me) in promoting the e-shop since the launch about 8 months ago. I am still learning, trying things out and finding my feet in the competitive world of e-tailing.
Since the East London design show in Dec, I [...]

Souvenir from Thailand

Posted on June 10, 2012 by Toothpicker

Delicious, functional or junk? It's time to review the items I bought from Thailand, starting from the edibles:
Lemongrass tea - I love lemongrass tea, not only does it smell good, it also tastes very refreshing. It is natural and full of antioxidants: it is detoxifying, good for digestion and can lower high [...]

MUJI & Naoto Fukasawa

Posted on March 10, 2012 by Toothpicker

As soon as I heard that Naoto Fukasawa (Japanese product designer and advisor for MUJI) will be in town to give a talk at the Design Museum, I booked the ticket immediately knowing that it will be sold-out event (and I was right). I have always liked his minimalist designs i.e. his [...]

Goodbye +J!

Posted on February 7, 2012 by Toothpicker

Finally, the successful collaboration between Jil Sander and Uniqlo has come to an end. Who could have guessed that Uniqlo would be the retailer to launch Jil Sander's comeback? From what I recall, this is probably one of the most successful fashion designer + retailer collaborations in recent years besides the H [...]
