Design by us é, pelas suas próprias palavras, uma “ team of dynamic design makers that will inspire you with their innovative and vibrant design “, são dinamarqueses e fazem-me recordar o mobiliário dos anos setenta, especialmente as suas mesas e cadeiras, onde fazem uso de madeira e metal. Gostei especialmente deste armário e deste tapete quem sabe das mil e uma noites ;) 

 Design by us is, on their own words, “a team of dynamic design makers that will inspire you with their innovative and vibrant design “, they are from
denmark and make me remember the 70’s furniture, specially their tables and chairs, made of wood and metal. I liked better this cabinet and this carpet, who knows maybe from the arabian nights ;)

Antony Gormley usa, enquanto escultor, o corpo humano como molde … muitas das vezes são réplicas do seu.

A instalação “another place” transmite-me paz … ao imaginar-me a observar o mar imagino-me assim … e o estranho é que faz todo o sentido imaginá-lo mas não tanto vivê-lo … o imaginário é sempre polido e perfeito …

Antony Gormley uses, as a sculptor, human body casts … usually his own body.

The artistic installation “another place” makes me feel peace … when imagining me observing the sea, I imagine me like this … and the stranger thing is that it makes sense to imagine it but not to live it … the imaginary world is always polished and perfect…
