Klickity

Monday, January 21st, 2013

Klickity is a product design  studio based in Dublin. They design contemporary, affordable products manufactured in Ireland. I recommend you to take a look at their website.

Here there are some of the products you can buy:

The Omad table top lamp. This table top lamp not only is stylish and useful is even designed to have minimal impact on our environment. Easy to disassemble, when you want to get rid of it you only need to recycle the plastic components and send back to Kllickity the electrical ones!

I love the idea of this modular notice board called Klip. Paint firendly sticky pads on the back allow it to easily attach to your wall and you can arrange the hexagons any way you want on your wall.

I really like the products that VaughShannon create. Vaugh and Shannon have a studio where they create functional products that integrate with their owner’s life style. Each of their products are full of personality, modern design, and high functionality!

I love this Coat Stand designed to look like a lamp

I love when designers are introducing a bit of our life into the design. This is why I like this coffee table with Dublin Sky line!

Leo Scarff Design is a studio that creates lights, furniture and sculptural structures. I really like their designs they are modern and fresh.

Have you ever seen the colourful lights in the  lobby in Marks Spencer’s in Grafton street? they are responsible for that piece of art! I always liked them and I often wondered who made them!

Take a look to their web site they really have innovative design!

 

De Bruir Furniture

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

I have been following this person’s work for quite a while. I really like his designs and the best of all is that he is local!!!

Garvan de Bruir is a designer and a craftsman that has his studio in Kildare Town. He specialises in the use of decorative timbers, fine leathers and cast metals.

His projects range from cover luggages, furniture, sculptures and prefabricated architecture.

I must say that his furniture always caught my eye. I think all his designs are so chic!

My favourite piece is actually his swing, I love it! it really intrigues me how he found the perfect balance to have a swing only using one piece of timber!

My only reservations is the price, I am scared to go down to his studio. I wonder if his prices are for average salary people like me!

Irish Design

Monday, March 5th, 2012

I always have been a fan of buy local/local design. However, is not always easy to follow this principle in Ireland. Prices went so high in the last years and the government seems to think that the best they can do to fix this crisis is to increase taxes! Surely if they would not be bailing the banks (which are the ones that put us on this spot) things would be much better!

Anyway! I am glad to show you a very interesting web site that has a lot of the Irish design that you can buy and it is all at a very competitive price! the web site is called Give Irish Craft

I like the website however, I do not like the way that you can not buy from them the items. If you want to buy something you need to go into Stockists and then check for places in your area that stock those items.

Here is an example from a great Irish design that you can buy to decorate your home! I love it so simple, good value and colourful! and guys it is only 49.95€!!!!!!!!
