ONZA Tiles

onza-1-design-crush

 

With just a glance can you tell what MUT Design‘s ONZA modular tiles are inspired by? Chocolate bars.  In texture, production process, and how they’re melted down with heat. They’re beautifully minimal, composed of just three ceramic pieces with invisible joints that allow infinite compositions when assembled. Choose from three neutral colors – grey, terra-cotta, and white.

Fall is my favorite season, but it’s for the crisp air and wardrobe options rather than the pumpkin spice lattes (blech!) and shorter days. And I’m past ready to bring out ankle boots, sweaters, and hats. I wouldn’t mind adding these things to my life either…

Eduardo Terrazas

eduardo-terrazas-1-design-crush

 

Eduardo Terrazas experiments a lot through his art, but my favorite is Crecimiento Exponencial. In the series of sixteen frames Terrazas explores the limits of growth through an evolution governed by predetermined rules and the physical consequences of two types of growth, exponential and organic.

“The rule that guides the representation of exponential growth is to keep adding lines, exponential and proportional manner, a white square format initially, until the increase is so intense that the square format becomes completely black. It is clearly a process of accumulation of unsustainable elements.

To represent organic growth it was decided to divide the space to bring it to a process of diversification; Thus, the original white square was first divided into two colors, the following table in four colors and so on. The gradual division of space during the first half of the series manages to visually show sustained growth and the second half of the table 9 to 16, it is an affirmation of the infinite possibilities that organic growth generated.”

Let’s Getaway

It may be because I’m about to head to the beach for a few days (with 14 family members, don’t be too jealous) but I’ve been daydreaming about little getaway homes. Or maybe just little getaways in general – to the beach, to the woods, the mountains, the country, the lake – all of them. Wouldn’t it be a dream to own or have regular access to a place just the right size for you and a few others? I have to admit, this is the only time I’m truly on board with the tiny house movement.

Ömer

omer-1-design-crush

 

Instagram is a treasure trove of good things beyond photos of sunsets, pumpkin spice lattes, and what people ate for lunch. An artist who simply goes by the name Ömer has quietly been creating and posting simple black line illustrations that leave just enough to the imagination. (A heads up that the majority of his work is probably NSFW.)

Daria Golab

daria-golab-1-design-crush

 

Nearly all of Polish artist Daria Golab‘s portraits are brimming with emotion and mystery. Why is that girl’s cheek scratched? What makes someone smile so big? What is she gazing at in the distance? Only creating more questions are the often present flowers or pastel colors.

Gosia Herba

Polish illustrator, graphic designer, and painter Gosia Herba favors interesting proportions and pastels making ordinary people and objects take on a fresh perspective in the process. Cubist influences are evident throughout, and the end result is 100% intriguing.

Delicate Rings

Crescent Ring

I have stupidly small hands that look kind of ridiculous with large rings. Back in high school – shout out to the 90s! – I’d stack my fingers full of chunky silver rings, but the style gods have smiled upon us and much has changed since then. Not only are tiny thin rings the preferred look, but I also now prefer gold.  Check out these thirteen favorites.
