Love this new sofa by Jaime Hayon for Fritz Hansen. “I wanted the sofa to be based on a shell. A shell being hard on the outside, soft and welcoming on the inside. I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic – that’s why we named it FAVN” (Danish name for embrace). Oh, and be sure to check out another cool, similar sofa, Bardot” designed by Hayon for Bernhardt Design.

 


Dinosaurs

After touring most of the world, the amazing live adaptation of BBC’s revered documentary “Walking With Dinosaurs” has arrived in Australia. Recently, the Baby T-Rex visited Bondi Primary. I must have watched the above video fifteen times already – the kids screams of terror/awe/excitement… incredible! Unfortunately, apart from a few images, there doesn’t seem to be much information about the construction of the animatronic dinosaurs – I’d really like to see how they built the 36 ft tall & 56ft long adult Brachiosaurus

If only my moleskine’s were filled with beautiful drawings such as these by artist / illustrator Wil Freeborn! Be sure to check his  Flickr, every now and then  you come across a photo cataloging every page in a finished moleskine. So inspiring.
