We just discovered these great virtual exhibit visits from Jacksons’ Berlin antenna. Wish that they will add to the collection very soon.

If you have the occasion to visit Stockholm or Berlin pay a visit to their gallery. We have yet to visit the Berlin one – it had just opened the last time we had the pleasure to visit them on Sibyllegatan. Great space.

1. A very interesting story on how Finnish design ends up in Tokyo and elsewhere in The ones that got away by Jonas Forth.

2. Our future one-stamp collection: ’2+3′ wallpaper by Ilmari and Annikki Tapiovaara in 1958 and ‘Paimio’ chair by Alvar Aalto in 1931-32 via wallpaper and chair « well centred.

3. The Boyd collection and Oscar Niemeyer’s Strick House via the North Elevation
