The Beautiful Shears of Hitch Mylius

Inspired by a lovely post by Hitch Mylius on their website yesterday about the process of making a piece, I have found these images which I took on my last visit to their factory. As you can see, the shears seem to have caught my eye!

For the link to the Hitch Mylius post please copy and paste this:

Sfera - kid's furniture

We were delighted when Sfera used our Aerial fabric once more - this time on their beautiful children's furniture range. The collection is absolutely charming - as you can see below. 

The furniture is a collaboration between designer Shigero Mashiro and master woodworker Naomi Tado and was launched at Milan this year.

You can read more about the collaboration on Sfera's magazine pages here.

RAF Hendon

I was going through old images the other day and came across these from RAF Hendon. It is a wonderful museum of old aeroplanes. Some of the earliest have wooden framed wings with linen stretched over them - amazing how fragile they seem.

I really like all the markings and colours, and particularly how these crisp graphics work against the riveted metal panels. Beautiful.
