Ribbon Pouf by Maria Pergay

This is the kind of thing that would make you gasp for breath, and eventually, melt your wallet (or life savings!). If you are a true fashionista or an art collector, this Ribbon Pouf by Maria Pergay is definitely a must-have. How could you possibly resist? It only comes in an edition of 12. And boy. stainless steel has never(!) looked. so. good. Available at Demisch Danant, New York, USA.

Seen on Vogue Living Spring/Summer 2008.

Links for you..

As promised, here are some links for you. Since I haven't been reading blogs the past few weeks, below links are taken either from my emails, or my bookmarks. If you need more good reads, you could rely on my right sidebar links. (look ----->) :)

Young Illustrator Awards 2008

Claudia of Illustrative 2008 told me about the Young Illustrators Award 2008 currently accepting artworks from talented illustrators, animators, and book artists worldwide(!). 20 finalists will be shortlisted to participate at the Illustrative 2008 exhibition this October in Z├╝rich. Wanna know what the dateline and the top prize are? Click here to find out more.

Baden Baden, Japan

Baden Baden is another great Japanese design shop. I have to say they have a really good eye in selecting their products. I love most of them. :) But if I had to choose, Pendulum lighting is definitely(!) my top favorite.

textile+music, Japan

textile+music was founded in 2003 by textile designer Yuji Muzita. I learnt about textile+music from Baden Baden. Above are some of his wonderful work. You should see the rest of them here.

More Singapore-based design blogs

Here are the latest Singapore-based design blogs added to my links recently, Trend Insights and DesignHeir. Trend Insights is run by a team of professionals from advertising/design industries, and DesignHeir is run by D. Heir, a Creative Director, who happens to be my former classmate in fabric printing course. :) Folks, please join me to welcome them.

Take care now, I'll be back in two weeks.

out-of-blogland days

Sorry for not updating my blog and for not replying any emails for the past two weeks, but it'll be a while until I return to my old blogland days. :) I'll leave you with some links tomorrow, and as for today, please do visit the Color Chart: Reinventing Color, 1950 to Today (March 2 - May 12, 2008) exhibition at MoMA.org.

Above is a snapshot of one of their installation videos. It's the installation of ZOBOP! by Jim Lambie. I wish we could have that somewhere in our home. :) For those who can't visit the museum physically (like me!), you can view the Color Chart online exhibition here. OR listen to the Color Chart audio clips. Don't you just loooooove technology? ;-) Have a blast.

a mad, mad world.

An article on asian art market, published today, April 2, 2008, in The New York Times. It's hard to believe, but it is happening in this part of the world. So.. is it really a market bubble? You decide.


I've received an email from Jessica this morning, telling me about a newly launched online invitation site called pingg. It just took me a click and I was sold. You'd know good applications when you see them, right? And pingg is one of them.
pingg offers stylish online invites for today's modern world. You can select an image from their picture gallery, or use your own image for your invites, and send them by email, sms, web, or print. Can you tell that I had fun with pingg? :) I used one of my photographs to create my fake invite above. It's so easy to use, and I must say, it is one clever tool.

Thanks, Jessica!
