Fornasetti wallpaper for Cole & Son

Do you know who is Piero Fornasetti ? If not, take a look here, this guy was a dreaming genius and draw such beautiful things. I love his iconography a lot.

Cole & Son, with the help of Barbara, Fornasetti’s daughter, start to produce splendid wallpapers (for your walls, not your screen…) from his drawings, including this green-leaves-and-gold-keys one that is obsessing me !

Clouds, umbrellas, flying machines and suits of armour are among the motifs in this collection by Italian design house Fornasetti for English wallpaper brand Cole & Son. […]

The motifs are taken from the Fornasetti archive of drawings created by Barnaba’s father, Piero Fornasetti: “I chose things and I mixed them together, and I changed the colour, I changed the dimensions.”

Bird rib serie by Maurizio Bongiovanni

Ça fait un bail que j’ai blogué quelque-chose ici… On a même eu le temps dans l’intervalle de faire une overdose de “Get Lucky”. Aucune bonne raison, excepté que le printemps fût intense. Me voilà de retour !

Alors… quoi de mieux pour commencer l’été sur bingbangpouf que des oiseaux qui coulent ? Par Maurizio Bongiovanni.

A Millions Times by Humans since 1982

A Million Times” is a new project by humans since 1982. It’s similar to their The Clock Clock project, this time they’ve used 288 clocks which can be controlled by an iPad. We’ve seen stuff like this before, but it’s still mesmerizing.




Via today and tomorrow.

Bunad Blankets by Andreas Engesvik

THOSE blankets for Christmas ! It looks a lot like our traditionnal arrowed metis sash.

Oslo designer Andreas Engesvik has created a series of blankets inspired by the textiles of Norwegian folk costumes. Bunader are traditional costumes with roots in rural clothes from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and Andreas Engesvik worked with Norwegian manufacturer Mandal Veveri to make the wool Bunad Blankets. They’re based on motifs from five different regions in Norway: Setesdal, Nordland, Fusa, Bringeklut and Sunnmøre.


 “Mandal Veveri also had the complete recipes for all types Bunads which made it easy for us to be exact,” Engesvik told Dezeen. “All the colours are exactly the same as on the bunads,” he continued. “We did a lot of fine tuning off course, and we had to choose eight colours for every blanket as this is the limit for the Jaquard machine. The bunad is one of the most visible and known traditions in Norwegian cultural heritage; the garment is a significant cultural carrier and is central to the passing on of Norwegian handicraft traditions,” he added.



Andreas Engesvik is an alumni of University of Bergen and the National College of Art and Design Norway. He was co-founder of Norway Says in 2000 and founded his own studio in Oslo in 2009. He has previously featured on Dezeen with his coloured screens in collaboration with Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken.

Paper and Stick film by Ron Resch (works between 1960-1966)

Okay, I know, a 40 minutes video… But seriously, this is truly amazing. The evolution of the thoughts of this guy, Ron Resch… He totally impress me. his way to always go further with his ideas… This is what we call creativity, this is what we can do when we push our brains, and this is also the beginning of computerisation. This 4o minutes truly worth it. Wow. Geometry and patterns enthousiasts will be blown away.
