DESIGNER - circus boy band

Circus boy Band is a multidisciplinary design studio based in Seoul, South Korea. The collaborative studio takes on commissions in graphic design, illustration, product design, and also have their own label with stationery, bags, homewares, etc. This woodland design caught my eye along with lots of other interesting bits and pieces, As spotted online at Circus Boy Band.
























WALLPAPER - mini moderns

'Feathers' is the third wallpaper design in the Mini Moderns 'Hinterland' collection. This is a result of a repeat collaboration between Mini Moderns and artist, Matt Sewell. The design is based on Matt's feather watercolours, which feature in the design for the end papers of his book 'Our Songbirds'. The wallpaper design fits perfectly with the spirit of the 'Hinterland' collection, which takes inspiration from the nature reserve of Dungeness, on the South Kent coast. Feathers cost £55 a roll and are available in 5 colourways: Lido, Mustard, Chalkhill Blue, British Lichen and Coach Emerald.

MUGS - mmmg

It was through researching Tyra von Zweigbergk that I found out Korean company MMMG (millimeter milligram) had introduced the fifth version of their glass cups back in summer 2014. Tyra was one of the collaborators, with two designs (above and below) called 'Park' and 'Ghost'. There are fourteen cups in the new range with various designers creating two each. If you have been with P&P for many years you will know at one time I could not see enough vintage Fire King designs and these new mugs from MMMG follow in that milk glass tradition.









Below - MMMG may be on version 5 of their mug designs but perhaps like me you did not see the earlier collections so I had a little dig around to find some of their previous mug designs....



And finally a little reminder of MMMG's bold stationery designs and a past post........
