Algue

Inspired by nature, Algue, French for “algae,” are individual plastic elements that can be joined to create personalised interior design elements, from screens to room dividers. Because you put the pieces together yourself, each ‘art work’ is unique. I can’t wait to put mine together!

Algue can be bought from Utility Design.


Global Cities

In 2007, for the first time in history, 50% of the people on earth are living in cities…..

There is a really interesting post on ‘Pentablog’ featuring ‘Global Cities’ a new exhibition staged in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. Worth a look I think.

With all the attention on the change of Prime Minister the door of No10 Downing Street is getting a great deal of exposure. This set me thinking about the numerals on the door and why the ‘0’ is at an angle? It’s unique but I really like it. Apparently there are two identical doors that are made of enamelled steel and each one is interchanged when the other needs maintenance. John
