The new A issue: Jun Takahashi

The new issue of A magazine is curated by Undercover's Jun Takahashi. The magazine includes an extensive look on his tokyo lab, his stuffed dolls and statues, his designed furniture, his drawings and of course his fashion. There are also some interviews. Here is an extract from his interview to Terry Jones about his last collection:" My first idea was to use just one fabric and one color on the wholebody (wrapped faces too). I thought it would be beautiful, attractive in a way. I am realising recently that people say it's dark, but for me it's beautiful [..]It's romantic, beautiful and also ugly in a way sometimes and all these kind of feelings are finally beautiful in a way." Check his last collection on here

Tsui Design

Andreas is providing me with the best architecture information. One of the most innovative and cool architecture magazines is Mark. This magazine is based in Holland and covers a more visionary and fresh aspect of architecture of today. The 4th issue has a full-page article about Andreas' Cloud house (check my June archive for more on this). Browsing a little more I discovered something very very unusual which sticked on my brain since yesterday. Tsui design is an architecture and design firm based in California. I would call their architecture a mixture of Gaudi meets World of Warcraft. Maybe their buildings look more like videogame than a real videogame. Apart from designing these dreamy houses they also make fashion. Why not? entering their houses in Ralph Lauren is a major faux pas... Check their website here
