3 million pound speakers

Got some money to burn? Like good sound for your music? Don’t look any further, we’ve got the right gear for you.

Check out these speakers:

Vinçon – A shopping experience in Barcelona

Do you like contemporary design? I know just the place to be, Vinçon in Barcelona. I already wrote about it 2 years ago, but it is really one of my favourites.

This cool shop is housed in a listed building for its architecture and is a great combination between new design and “old” design. Vinçon is treated as a window display so that when you take a walk through it your experience becomes a unique one and different to what you would feel in a department store.

It is located at the Passeig de Gràcia, next to the Pedrera building by Gaudi. Hard to miss I would say.

They have all kinds of homeware stuff, furniture, books, toys and lots of nice gadgets. Visiting this shop might take up more than half an hour if you want the full experience. If you don’t like shopping you still may enjoy this.

You know, there are these shops where it’s hard to leave without having made a purchase. Vinçon is definitely one of them.

We’re gonna need a bigger boat

So, you are the stylish guy with all the fancy clothes, nice watch, cool house and hot girlfriend. What is next on your wishlist? I’ve found the new item for your collection of gadgets. Internationally renown designer Marc Newson has collaborated with Officina Italiana Design to create an over-the-top Riva Aquariva.

The boat looks cool, using design features such as retro turquoise upholstery and nice faux mahogany. Do you want to have one of these 22 boats? Then it would be wise to visit the Gagosian Gallery in New York or your local Riva dealer. They are only $ 1,500,000. Which is kind of a bargain for such a piece of art.

Cool design for a stylish home

So you look fashionable and cool, but what does your house look like?

We have found some nice articles for in your home to complement your design furniture and maybe even your IKEA Billy cupboard.

This recently debuted collection is the first of a series of collaborative product releases. Each design is created and produced by small independent designer makers and then distributed by Umbra to boutiques and design shops in Europe. The Atelier Made partnership helps slow design out of the shadows in order for you to get unique pieces of design in your home.

How did we find this? Michelle Ivankovic, who is working in our office as well, curated this collection. And it looks great in our office.

Grtz,

Derek
