An extensive Flickr set of mid-century script on sign, labels, posters etc. Thanks @neiljgower.
A very welcome discovery, Iran do Espírito Santo. Everyday forms made more precious through materials and by being taken out of their original context. Who knew a circular piece of brick wall could be so appealing? Iran did, that’s why we like him.
Today we saw this very brilliant pencil set. Currently a one off, it consists of brass fittings which turn the pencils into a magnifying glass, knife, eraser, file, saw, spirit level etc. So nicely made and super useful too. By staff & pupils from Northumbria University.
The work of Susan Collis is mind blowing. She creates everyday items & scenes using precious materials. This bag is made of graph paper and coloured in using a biro. Other favourites include solid gold screws, blankets embroidered with silver to look like paint spatter & old pieces of wood inlaid with brass splinters. More here & here
