Lego or how imagination is triggered and built by bricks

Love the new Lego Campaign. I still remember our big box of Lego at home and how my brother and I used to build whatever crossed our mind with these tiny colourful bricks. Lego really captured their brand essence in these ads and inspires small and big kids to get creative again and let their imagination fly wild.

Of SwissMiss, Sandwiches and Spot Challenges

One of my favourite Design Blogs is SwissMiss (and not only because she’s also Swiss). She has this great mix of design-art-whimsy-objects-furniture-fonts-etc. This Mondrian inspired Sandwich might just be the best thing for “Morgenmuffel” (there just isn’t a good translation for that)-artsy person to wake-up to.

And this might be something for the “hit every Damien HirstLarry Gagosian Gallery around the world – Complete Spot Challenge” adventurer.

Needless to say, if I had the necessary petty cash lying around, I would already have hit half of them by mid-week.  Gosh, am I envious of Cristina Ruiz of the Art Newspaper. Not only does she work for an amazing institution, but on top of it, the Challenge is paid for by it. But unlike the crème de la crème of the art world who would have to shell out $108,572 for a 19-day luxury itinerary as calculated by Reuters, she is not flying first class and tries to do the challenge with as little money as possible.

Update: Participants who have finished the Spot Challenge will receive their Spot Painting end of September 2012, see Cristina Ruiz’s article on the Art Newspaper.

 

High Noon for Tea Fashionistas

Talking about Cream Tea… Afternoon Tea at the Berkeley London, an absolute must for all fashionistas that love afternoon tea or tea lovers that happen to be fashionistas. Trip to London, jotted down for 2012.

On the mouth-watering menu (in a fashionable gourmestatic way, of course):

  • Valentino orange and ginger clutch cake closed with oversized chocolate bow
  • Bottega Veneta colour blocking pink and gold pear mousse and clementine cremeux coat with matching macaroon button
  • Dolce & Gabbana signature gold starred chocolate éclair dress filled with hazelnut cream
  • Stella McCartney must-have polka dot sponge cake dress
  • Burberry Prorsum stylish black and white double breasted chocolate biscuit coat with snow white vanilla icing
  • Miu Miu winter spice glittery high-heeled shoe biscuit
  • Jill Sander pomegranate and grenadine mousse dress topped with colourful chocolate flower pattern
  • Lanvin show-stopping cassis bavarois dress with crème de mûre jelly topped with signature folded meringue
  • Sonia Rykiel striped chestnut cream and almond sponge cake dress complete with trendy metallic sparkles

UPDATE: Just booked a table in the Caramel Room for the Prêt a Portea in June 2012, yeah!

Do you have milk?

I never had the experience of an US school Cafeteria, but this sure would look cute on an afternoon-tea table decked with Cupcakes (ok, not very british, but they look cute), mini cucumber sandwiches, scones, clotted cream and the whole nine yards of bakery goddess goodies.

Barbie forever … Creepy or just barbendary?

If you live in CH, you most probably know Ron Orp. They know what kind of fun stuff to do on any given day. And sometimes, they also share what they discover in their eternal quest of being cool and ahead of us mere ordinary mortals or just artsy-ronorp-self. Today they made me discover Margaux Lange, a sort of Peter-Pan of Barbie Doll’s, never letting go of that pink blond escape from this harsh b/w reality to a world of fantasy where everything is possible and Technicolor drenched. I just am not quite sure if her jewellery is barbendary and, one must admit, the lips look like fun colour swatches for your spring make-up inspiration or slightly plastic-dismantling serial killer creepy. See for yourselves…
