The countryside in South Wales oozes an amazing rustic charm. All the textures that come together to give the landscape and structures such a great feel. Such wonderful inspiration from a beautiful country.
Cork is quite possibly one of the better materials for any type of creating; fashion and home included. Oak trees that grow in the western Mediterranean form thick, rugged and corky bark. Over time, this park can develop a considerable thickness and can be harvested every 10-12 years as cork. The harvesting of the cork does not harm the tree, and the a new layer of cork regrows, making it a renewable resource.
As much as creativity is an individual, personal act, we believe that being able to share ideas and collaborate with other artists and designers makes us more creative. As you saw in our post last Friday, we began sharing our collaborations with you, today we look back at one of the masters of the 20th Century to inspire us to further greatness. Keep an eye out for our “Creative Collaboration” series to find out how we continue to feed our creativity and grow as designers.

“Our friend Nancy Fire, founder of Design Works International, takes inspiration from every part of life and integrates those experiences into her work. Whether it is the creamy foam of a cappuccino with its brown crust or the blush of a young woman’s cheek, Fire is a collector of details. This approach creates designs that are unique and completely original for each client.
Fire recently attended Maison Objet and Paris Design Week and snapped some candid photos of locals lounging around in the Marais area of Paris. This inspired us to seek design inspiration in the everyday things – people and their fashions.”
We’re excited to present the first in a series of collaborations.
