This company's websites have sat in my bookmarks for ages - I have been dying to post about them!
Who are they?  Well they go by the name CONFETTISYSTEM and they are kind of a big deal.  Friends Nicholas Anderson and Julie Ho have developed an incredible business working in an amazing partnership as artists, stylists and designers.

Using simple materials such as tissue paper, cardboard and silk, CONFETTISYSTEM "transforms interactive objects that create a point of focus, where memories are made and a spontaneous collaboration with the viewer is sparked."

CONFETTISYSTEM art direct and create installations and sets for the fashion and music industry and also welcome custom design work  More recently, they have also launched a cute jewlery range.  Is there anything these guys can't do?  CONFETTISYSTEM's client list runs for miles and include United Bamboo, Opening Ceremony, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Pop magazine.

Totally inspiring, they are the most gorgeous company going around!  They literally incorporate everything I love in design... Colour, metallics, texture and paper!  Such a great business concept, I'm sure no day would ever be boring for those two.  Who wouldn't love to create sets out of paper for fashion shows, editorials and exhibitions?

You can check out CONFETTISYSTEM's website or blog here, or perhaps you'd like to purchase a unique artwork (I'll be saving for a bunting) at their store.

all wrapped up.

How incredible are these images?  These spiderweb-like installations are by Austrian-Croation design firm Numen/For Use and involved wrapping between 70-45 km of tape for 4-7 days, depending on their location.

"The idea for the installation originates in a set design concept for a dance performance in which the form evolves from the movement of the dancers between the pillars. The dancers are stretching the tape while they move, so the resulting shape is a (tape) recording of the choreography."

Multiple layers of transparent adhesive tape were stretched between the scaffolding, followed by continuous wrapping resulting in a complex, organic form. Images show an installation at Berlin’s decommissioned Tempelhof Airport as well as several other locations.
This installation will soon travel to Melbourne, Buenos Aires and other cities.

As I am about to start a new job (and I am all about 'rewarding' myself for it), the question arises...  "To purchase, or not to purchase?" (please say 'purchase').

Loving the Alexander Wang Diego bucket bag SICK.

Well here's yet another reason for me to visit the Big Apple. The Gramercy Park Hotel is somewhere I would definitely love to spend a night or two.  Each of the 185 rooms have their own "unique layout, vivid Renaissance colour palette inspired by Raphael and distinctive collection of art and objects."  The art and fit-outs of each room is simply incredible. Visit their blog here.

I have a handful of extremely talented graphic designer friends and together we want to organize a joint exhibition sometime next year.  Just the 5 of us.  Each exhibiting our own work.  Which would actually be really interesting because we each have such different styles and in design.  So I am rather excited about it. I am sure we will theme this exhibition to create a link between our works, but in the mean time it all leads me wondering... What could I possibly create that would be worth exhibiting?  Although I am more than sure I could never create paper sculptures as incredible as Anna Wilihighfield's, I am feeling quite inspired by her beautiful creations...
