This Week's Discoveries
Slowdown Studio is the creative project of Marc Hendrick, a project where he collaborates with his favourite illustrators and designers from around the world to create limited edition woven throws. Our personal favourite at the moment is the Hocko Throw, designed by Berlin-based artist Jonathan Niclaus.
The Green Curtain
We first discovered Salva Lopez via his beautiful architectural images. Now we are big fans of his latest work in progress, The Green Curtain, exploring and documenting the landscape of the Montjuïc Mountain in Barcelona. It shows both the ethereal green landscape alongside the more desolate areas. Check it out here.
Little Duck - The Picklery
We're very excited about the opening of Little Duck - The Picklery, from the people behind Rawduck and Ducksoup. The Picklery will be a fermenting kitchen and eatery, where you'll be able to buy pickles and other fermented goods by the jar. If you want more than pickles you can attend their workshops to learn more about pickling or how to make your own drinking vinegar, or kombucha - everything fermented!
American beauty brand Glossier are finally shipping to the UK! Celebrating real girls, in real life, Glossier describes itself as a new way of thinking of beauty products. "Beauty should be fun, easy, imperfect, and personal. Above all, we believe that you give life to products-products don’t breathe life into you". Hooray!
We've just discovered the Instagram of German artist, actress, designer, writer, film and theatre producer Beatrix Ost. Life-affirming stuff.
Cultural Canvas - A Workshop
If you are in London this weekend, pop down to Tate Modern to join their Cultural Canvas workshops, where you'll be able to explore 'cultural influences and how ideas, customs, and social behaviour of a particular people or society are passed on through generations'.
