Milan Designweek 2018: Noble Souls

Noble Souls

Timothy Oulton has introduced his newest range ‘Noble Souls’ at Milan Designweek 2018. ‘Noble Souls’ living, lighting and dining, is designed to add an extra feeling of “sensory joy” to an interior. Come to think of it; adressing the human senses is a very important part in interior design, nowadays (the mass-production-days) it’s even the most luxurious part. Everything in the ‘Noble Souls’ range is made by hand, at human scale. Hidden luxury and social awareness; very on trend!

“today’s real luxuries are moments, not things “

The concept for this colllection is based on the work of ancient craftsmen, their techniques and the natural materials that have been used for thousands of years. Oulton succeeded to turn these ingredients into a modern yet comfortable range: using only 100% natural vegetable dyes, feathers and natural linens. ‘Noble Souls’ is pure luxury!

Kaleidoscopic Effect through the OP Vase Collection

Kaleidoscopic Effect through the OP Vase Collection

The OP-Vase collection is a series of vases designed by Studio Bilge Nur Saltik in 2015, they are hand-crafted in collaboration with Turkish artisans in Istanbul. The glass pieces come in two colors (blue and green) and in three sizes, each with  a unique pattern of cuts and extremely precise corners.

 Home Decor

“A signature quality of each glass vase is the illusion created by its complex pattern of cuts. A kaleidoscopic effect is created within each thick glass form, so that when viewed from different angles, a single flower placed within it, dissolves into an entire bouquet!” (read more bilgenursaltik.com)

We feel that adding OP to your home-deco collection is an investment worth making, certainly if in you live in a country where flowers are expensive.

Mono Japan in Amsterdam

Mono Japan in Amsterdam

MONO JAPAN is a celebration of contemporary Japanese craft and design. It is an event and a platform devoted to sophisticated beauty grounded in tradition. Okay! We, Mimi Berlin Blogger Team, went to this Japanese event for the first time ever.

Sugicodama

We were stunned by so much traditional arts & crafts in one building. You must know; we have a complete different image of Japan in our minds: the colorful and tech-forward Japan. But we did spent a long time stroking the ‘Sugicodama’ cedarwood sculptures by Shimpei Arima; they were amazingly soft to the touch!

Mono Japan can be visited through February 19, 2018 at the Lloyd hotel & cultural embassy, Oostelijke Handelskade 34 in Amsterdam.

Dots and other geometric shapes and optical illusion play a big role in the work of graphic designer Geoff McFetridge. We, at Mimi Berlin, love dots so we chose them. McFetridge works and lives in Los Angeles, amongst his clients are ‘big brands’ for instance Nike and Target, Next to advertising jobs he also worked with film director Spike Jonze and Colette (amongst a big list of others). Be sure to check his tumblr to see more of this, seemingly simple, work, it’s worth your while. xoxo Mimi
