My summer readings so far from top to bottom: Greek Myths (to refresh my memory); La Famosa Invasione degli Orsi in Sicilia (which I read to Giulia); Design as an Attitude by Alice Rawsthorn (design theory and critique at its most engaging); Miss Marple and the Thirteen Problems by Agatha Christie (late night reading); The Rituals of Dinner by Margaret Visser (preparing for 2019 thanks to @osandoos); The Assisanation of Margaret Thatcher by Hilary Mantel (for beautiful prose and dark humour); Museum of the Future by Bechtler & Imhof (more inspiration thanks to @matyldakrzykowski). Any further suggestions?

On hot summer nights one has time to scroll through all the accumulated pictures on the phone. “Dunes” are pieces by German designer Lisa Ertel (@lisa_errtel) that call back to memory both, out-of-scale toy building blocks and, primitive megalithic monuments. The rustic looking furniture is in fact carefully crafted out of spruce, and sand-blasted to reveal the wood’s structure and growth rings. Simplicity can sometimes be deceptively so... •

When you want to try and join something, chances are your first trial will be with knots. Sea life in particular is hugely dependant on being able to use efficiently a variety of different knots. Her pictured are examples of knots at the Joints exhibition, back in April at the Fuori Salone curated by @anniina.koivu

Last checks to make sure the tent is properly fitted to the car roof. And now fold it again boys.

Best summer present ever! Beautiful products from @imersa.it arrived today, just in time before I leave for the summer holidays. I cannot wait to try them out.

The sense of nostalgia for the home land lives in the small details. #italiandetails #salo #oldhomes #summerholidays #onceuponatime

"Unique design objects can have the same expressive power as great art. So it is valuable to have a fair for those galleries and designers, that work in the young exciting field of collectible design."
