Being one of the top art and design colleges in the U.K. ( if not the world), the annual RCA degree show is where you will find the design stars of the future. Out of the two sites, I only visited the Kensington one [...]

Fine cell work

Posted on June 27, 2013 by Toothpicker

 
I was not aware of the organisation Fine cell work until my friend brought me to their one day exhibition/ sale in Hampstead. And I was quite genuinely surprised by what I saw at the event.
The showroom was set inside a lovely house in Hampstead with a beautiful garden. We were greeted [...]

Drop by Tracey Neuls x Tord Boontje
 
For an ex-shopaholic like me, I am now buying only about 10% of what I used to in a year. I spent years using shopping as a means of stress relief from work, and it was only when I started selling all my unwanted stuff on [...]

Posted on January 11, 2013 by Toothpicker

 
Coincidentally, after writing my previous blog entry, I saw an exhibition on See Red Women's Workshop, an organisation fully committed to the ideals of the second wave feminist movement, and used graphics ( mainly screen prints) to explore and question the role of women in society from 1974 to 1990.

London design festival 2012 ( part 2)

Posted on October 9, 2012 by Toothpicker

100% design at Earls Court
 
A rather delayed post on the London design festival, so I will keep it brief...
At 100% design, a new layout which divided the venue into different sections made it easier to navigate. Also, a lot more effort was spent on the interior of the venue, which was a [...]

Nendo's mimicry chair and Established & sons' Bench years

 
I haven't had the time to organise the photos or blog about the London design festival until now. With so many activities across town, I had to pace myself and not tried to squeeze in too much.

London's 'green' Olympic park

Posted on August 11, 2012 by Toothpicker

A showcase for British horticulture

I was particularly curious when I heard that wild flowers [...]
