a couple of exciting discoveries…
Through my internet travels I just discovered the studio of Oliver Gustav in Copenhagen. To die for! I am especially loving his curated mix of art, design, furniture and lighting. He clearly has a very honed eye. I’m particularly in love with the last 2 images…very much my colours…very much wanting to redecorate the apartment now…
Any thoughts, comments, suggestions or feedback is much appreciated, as I endeavour to plan the future of the blog and our studio, and what the next 6 yrs may bring…
Gubi is available in Hong Kong through Eclectic Cool.
Eclectic Cool, G/F 58 Po Hing Fong, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. Open 12-6 Wed – Sun.
While the inspirations for the collection are a bit eclectic (they vary from 1930s and 40s French moderne design up to the 1970s and more contemporary in style) the pieces are united by the quality of their materials and their manufacture. Locally-sourced materials (including cast bronze, solid marble, exotic skins, lacquer work and local hardwoods) that give a luxurious feel to each piece, are brought together by the hands of skilled artisans reviving skills that not long ago were dying. Each piece is individually crafted, so every piece is a one of a kind and can be customized in size and material if so desired. I hope you like!
I’m back, but before I regale you with tales of the Orient, I would love to share with you these images of the Flint lights from Caste – their very first lighting collection! The lamps are all cast in bronze with handmade shades of French paper. Very cool indeed.
