Paper goods from Blacklist studio

I’ve recently discovered the design studio Blacklist. The design studio is based in Sydney, Australia. It was founded in 2008 by husband and wife Nathan and Jaynie Johnson. Blacklist produces a range of art prints, stationery and paper goods, which I’ll show you below. I’ve picked out a few things from the collection, which I would love to have in my own home.

Design Moments – Clara von Zweigbergk

Graphic designer and illustrator Clara von Zweigbergk designed this Themis Mobile for Artencnica‘s for their 2010 summer collection. It is a delicate, geometric sculpture composed of five colorful, faceted ornaments. When I first saw it, I put the mobile on my kids’ wishlist. However, as time went by I kept thinking that the mobile would look great in our living room. So guess what, the Themis Mobile is now on my list. And now there is a new Themis Mobile II in stores.

About Clara von Zweigbergk

Clara von Zweigbergk was born in Stockholm 1970.   She studied illustration and graphic design in Sweden, France and USA. She culminated her studies at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, after which she worked as a graphic designer for several advertising agencies and designers in Stockholm.

In 1997 she founded Rivieran Design Studio, with two partners, as a multi-disciplinary agency spawning many successful collaborations with fashion, illustration, architecture, furniture, product and graphic design. Rivieran quickly gained the eye of the press for its unique structure and interior space.

She has designed and illustrated several books, among the “A Collection of Tickets” by Carouschka which has become a cult item in Japan. After four years as a graphic designer at Lissoni Associati in Milano, with clients such as Boffi, Porro and Alessi, she has now re-started her studio in Stockholm.

Inspiration

Inspired by the polyhedron solid, the five faceted geometric shapes are actually hollow ornaments lending to the lightness and bounce of the mobile when touched. Each ornament is individually colored in fluorescent neons, purples and browns.

Statement by Clara:

“The shapes quickly came together as a mobile. I think of them as planets and like to see the colors change while gently turning.”

Another day another dream

I’m still looking for cool prints and posters for our home, and I came across this cool Etsy shop. The owner is yumalum, who wants to brighten your day and home with his work. I’m tempted to add that his mission is accomplished. I couldn’t think of  better way to brighten my home.

The prints are truly something. I cannot decide which one to get. I’m really drawn to the “Another day another dream” print, because that’s kind of the way I’m feeling right now. However, I also love the one “I want to lounge with you”. For once it’s my all time favourite chair, but it’s also a really cool print.

You’ll find his shop here and if you want more he also has a blog right here.

Little studio

Little studio is a cute little shop that I would like to share with you guys. And don’t worry, shipment is worldwide, and in April and May it’s free if you buy a pillow. I think I might be tempted to buy something myself. The design is wonderful, and I can imagine several items in my home already. The posters for little people are so cute too. Check out the shop right here.
