Iri5 presents cassettes on canvas:(cassette is real, no paint, no photoshop)
Wade Kavanaugh does large installations made out of building materials such as steel studs, plywood, sheet rock, and joint compound. I would love to see one of these large room installations. Luckily his work will be on display at the Reeves Contemporary in New York Feb.12 – March 21. I can smell the sheet rock now!
We have an inexplicable fascination with cork-based furniture (as evidenced here and here). At least when it’s done well we do. And artist Tomas Kral’s line of products are some of the best we’ve seen. His designs are modern, clean, thoughtful, and look durable (this last one’s hard to say without actually getting our hands on one). Check out his website for more photos.
His process includes the using a CNC maching to mill the cork and hand blowing the glass pieces. It’s a marriage between a controlled, accurate process and one that is much more organic.
Here’s a fun video to start off your work week:
Thanks Amy for the link.
French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have created a paper sculptures/ room dividers that take on the form of clouds. The structures are made of textile pieces held in place by elastic bands. There are tons of colors and you can configure them as you wish. The options are endless.

Poolga has great iphone and ipod touch wallpapers designed by various designers. They link to all the artists sites which are just as fascinating than the wallpapers. nice!
If you are searching for something a bit more specific there is an app in the app store called backgrounds which gives you several catagories of images loaded from all over the place including flickr. You can browse through several catagories including my favorite, buildings, or just stumble through recents and favorites.
Wall graphics are certainly in and I must admit, I love them. I’ve seen a lot of branches, birds, and vines, but rarely do I find ones that make me chuckle! Elly Nelly’s Get a Grip line made my day. Great for a kids room or any place where you can have a little fun.
