The first one being dress with a black and white design, which can be hand-coloured.
Berber Soepboer approached Michiel Schuurman in August 2008 to design the textile for a series of dresses. The COLOURING dresses were shown on the 7th of September in Bergeick in 'De Ploeg', a very famous textile factory. Although Michiel spent a lot of time to design over a 100 patterns and Berber worked around the clock to get the sewing and the hundreds of buttons done, the result proves the chemistry between them.

About Berber Soepboer
She especially designs clothing which can be worn in different ways, so the wearer can make choices in how to wear the cloth. According to her words “Life exists of many choices based on expectations, desire and the available time. When everything is still possible the world seems an incredible place”.She translates these endless possibilities in her design.

He studied graphic design and typography for two years on the Koninklijke Academie voor de Beeldende Kunsten Den Haag and graduated as graphic designer in 2002 on the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam. His work is almost always about altering typography to the point where it fully replaces image. The sometimes psychedelic designs are strongly based on classic typographic laws and the pure contrast between black and white.

63.02º, built in a densely residential area in Nakano, Tokyo.
It's a small building of a SOHO and an apartment for rent. The front road is really narrow, but the next apartment has a big open space between the road and the building. In order to this situation, the facade of 63.02° is inclined 63.02 degrees toward the front road, so that a wide and deep view is acquired. From the large windows that are opened on the inclined facade, you can see neighbor’s cherry tree and the cityscape.

Wishing cards for the Port Eliot literary festival
The House of Fairy tales 2007
by Emily Forgot

Emily Forgot is the appropriately curious moniker of London based Graphic artist Emily Alston. Having been working in the creative industry since graduating from Liverpool school of Art & Design in 2004 she has amassed a diverse range of international clients, from cultural institutions (The Princes Trust, The Arts council), Advertising (Fallon, MC Saatchi) & Editorial (The Guardian, GQ + Dazed and confused). Along side commercial endeavors Emily produces personal work in the form of limited edition prints and ceramics. Her work has been exhibited both in London and abroad most notably in 2007 at the “Fragiles” show as part of the prestigious Miami Art Basel.

Embracing the odd, the everyday & the sometimes surreal Emily forgot’s playful visual language and image making continues to innovate, evolve and surprise. With each new brief comes new ideas and fresh inspiration resulting in each client having a tailor made solution. Turning her hand to anything from illustration, retail display, print design and visual identity she prides herself on approaching all briefs with creative thought, originality, humour and beauty in mind,
whether the work be a commissioned piece or a flight of her own fancy.

Her enthusiasm, curiosity and eye for detail have stood her in good stead so far gaining recognition in publications such as the Creative Review, Vogue, ID, and Grafik magazine as one to watch.

While still shooting traditional film on location, Warren has up-to-the minute knowledge of digital workflow from capture to post production with everything being available to clients ‘in-house’.

Slow White series by Bo Reudler Studio
on view during Salone del Mobile Milan
Tuttobene , Via Savona 6, 22- 27 April 2009

Bo Reudler Studio is a product and interior design studio, led by designer Bo Reudler.
Based in The Netherlands. Bo graduated from the Arnhem Academy of Art and Design and is also co-founder of Asylum Collection.

Studio philosophy:
"We are storytellers through matter. We love materials: following their hidden qualities to bring out their natural beauty, experimenting to discover things we could have never thought of. We love the immaterial: charging things with imagination and meaning."

For Slow White collection, Bo Reudler left his computer behind and ventured into the woods. He gathered fallen wood to transform into furniture. He started building again with his own hands, knowing everything that went into the process, working consciously, smelling the wood, feeling the structure, composing.

The branches were carefully selected for their distinguishing imperfections and curves. Following these shapes led him to the designs: the individual branches were numbered and the pieces are composed using the most beautiful combination of branches. These forms give personality to each piece which will always be different due to the randomness of each branch. All products are hand made.
