Sarah Illenberger at Papier Hier

The yearly Papier Hier event, organised by Paper supplier Antalis, will take place in Amsterdam on Saturday 19 November. I can recommend going! You will see the most beautiful papers and graphic products and will be able to attend presentations from well known designers. I am especially looking forward to see Sarah Illenberger. I love her playful images made from objects like food, wool and tires.

Playful cover

German design agency Paperlux has designed a special tactile cover for Novum Magazine. After embossing the paper with about 150 triangles, the cover can be folded into extraordinary 3D-shapes.
The film below shows the development process of the cover.

Thai skincare brands

And here a piece of advice from Karmakamet, that I don't want to keep from you: to reach a deep or high candle, light a piece of uncooked dried spaghetti and use it to light the candle!

I Wish You Hadn't Asked

Austrialian art/advertising collective The Glue Society has unveiled its latest artwork, titled I Wish You Hadn't Asked, at the Sculpture By The Sea festival in Aarhus, Denmark.

The work consists of a large house, where it rains on the inside. The public are encouraged to enter with a raincoat. Artist James Dive of the Glue Society says the work is "about that moment in a relationship when something is said, or done, that can't be taken back. And the rot sets in."
