These are beautiful designs by Iris Saar Isaacs and Jane Barwick. Made from stainless steel each piece is carefully crafted from design through to completed shapes as broaches or bracelets, and are then powder coated in bright fashion colours.

An interesting little label with a twist – Locher’s

April 29, 2007 Leave a comment

Feel like expressing yourself in a unique way, find you have lots to say but don’t know how to do it? Well this is an interesting approach taken by a cheeky new label, Locker’s. The designs and fine embroidery looks so sweet nonna and mama would love them – unless they get too close!

Very cheeky, very French!

Design for the Other 90%

Design for the other 90%
On view May 4–September 23, 2007

On view in the Arthur Ross Terrace and Garden, this exhibition highlights the growing trend among designers to create affordable and socially responsible objects for the vast majority of the world’s population (90 percent) not traditionally serviced by professional designers. Organized by exhibition curator Cynthia E. Smith, along with an eight-member advisory council, the exhibition is divided  into sections focusing on water, shelter, health and sanitation, education, energy and transportation and highlights objects developed to empower global populations surviving under the poverty level  or recovering from a natural disaster.
