With the iPhone and apps being around for many years you would think that technology would trickle down to most other industries. When you examine the bicycle industry there aren’t any of the mainstream brands exploring that area of technology just yet.

The Origami Canoe

02 Aug 2016
Water lovers that like to canoe will love the following I think. Imagine that you could take your canoe everywhere as it is compact & transportable and you can assemble it in very little time. Sounds like science fiction isn’t it? A Ghent, Belgium based start-up introduced it.

Concept House

03 Jun 2016
If you love minimal achitecture you’ll love this house by CAAN architecten from Ghent, Belgium. The house is situated at the Belgian coast in Oostduinkerke and is a collaboration between my client Designcollectors and Rietveld Projects.

A film about Vitra

22 Mar 2016
I've always been a fan of great design. When referring to great design in the furniture world you most likely end up at Vitra. Vitra has been a family business for eighty years.

Wooden Wonderland

01 Sep 2015
Wood has always fascinated me. It's also a wonderful material for long lasting toys. The item that has our attention today could be described as a toy for 'grown ups'.

I like items that can take on another form when you are tired of looking at it.
