Title chair is a design by Alex Robins. The woven arched seat not only epitomises the attention to detail through design but also creates an optimum seating position. Made from an ash hard wood frame which is coated in a light wax to retain a soft and natural wood quality. The light weight ash frame makes the title chair a practical, maneuverable and robust chair for dining. Music by Little Dragon
Alexandra Abraham is an artist jewellery maker based in North London.
She says about her work,
"I believe that almost every material or object can be beautiful; it is simply a matter of how they are perceived. I’m inspired by the origins of my materials and excited by the physical process of turning the lost and the forgotten into something exquisite, glamorous and even wearable. The sense of history and knowledge that people have handled and used my materials many years ago is extremely important to me, and I like to imagine that something of their spirit becomes invested
in my work."
This film looks at Alexandra's process and exploration of the Thames Foreshore where she finds the objects and inspiration for her jewellery. It was filmed on location at Alexandra's studio at the Chocolate Factory in North London and the Thames Foreshore at Rotherhide.

Update: Face-o-mat did travel, so also check out the new video, "Face-o-mat travels the world": vimeo.com/79961180
The social machine out of cardboard creates a humorous interactive experience. It’s an analogue portrait machine with a photo booth principle. The backend of Face-o-mat is covered with reference images to create a facelift. Through the facelift, one can be drawn as an animal hybrid or one can choose to simply get a really nice portrait.
This video shows a summery of Face-o-mat's tour during Stockholm's guerrilla design week 2013.
Face-o-mat is portable and plans to travel different cities, to make people happy. Furthermore, it is possible to change the facelift subject depending on the context, but it has to remain witty, socially critical and fun.
