Early start for me today ... working on a @kbb_magazine feature which involves a bit of styling and an interview with the home owner, therefore I'll be out of the studio for the most part which makes a change. Anyway .. look at how this designer has used mosaics!! How DOPE of an idea is this?! Liasions mosaic decoration designed by @carlodalbianco made with an aqua marine background and cobalt blue & grey accents has been paired with #nendo bathroom furniture. Now who agrees that this is how you decorate a bathroom? 👏🏽👌🏽😍 #mornings#designideas 📷: @bisazzalondon
The mother of Finnish brass table lamps.
A rare Gunilla Jung table lamp designed in 1936-37 for Orno and exhibited at the 1937 Paris World Exposition.
Lacquered brass and mahogany details. (Tynell 5061 for scale). Gunilla drafted this lamp at the same time she designed the lighting for the iconic Savoy theater in Helsinki.
Daring to be different, Gunilla Jung created this astonishing brass and mahogany table lamp, standing at approximately half a meter. It was at a time when the norm was making lamps with classic or tubular legs, painted aluminium and iron shades.
It was a lamp that paved the way to a timeless trend in brass lamps, that is still as strong today as it was 80 years ago.
This lamp was in production for a short period in the late 1930s. Rarity is due to the formidable and high production cost, which made it one of the most luxurious and expensive table lamps of it's time (according to the Orno 1939 catalogue and price list modification in November 1939). Gunilla Jung mastered working with glass, silver, brass and almost every other material used at the time. She was a pioneer that paved the way and influenced others, including Gunnel Nyman and Lisa Johansson-Pape.
Unfortunately in 1939, Gunilla passed away at the young age of 34, and the world lost a pioneer and one of the best talents of the time in the applied arts and industrial design field.
‘Godspeed, fair winds and following seas’. Op de slotdag van de Marinedagen vond op het helidek van Zr. Ms. De Ruyter de "blessing of the sails plaats", waarin de zegen wordt gevraagd voor een behouden vaart. De blessing is voor de bemanningsleden en bezoekers van de Marinedagen. Vlootpredikant Fred Omvlee leidde de viering samen met vlootaalmoezenier Frank Kamp, een Imaan van de Omaanse Marine en een priester van de Argentijnse Marine. Onder meer het Koperkwintet van de Marinierskapel begeleidde deze dienst met muziek.
Sadly this winter sunshine isn't sticking around for the weekend, sad face. Buuuuut that gives me more time between custom orders to make new pretty things like this coat rack I was getting ready for Sunday! #silverlining
