Drawing her inspiration from the kitsch ceramic aesthetics, Rebecca takes the medium of ceramics as both her chosen material and subject matter. She is an enthusiastic hoarder, and aims to breathe new life into abandoned and forgotten domestic objects. She is fascinated by people’s ever more transient relationships with their possessions in the growth of this throwaway culture we live in. By making playful and ironic changes to the inherent properties of an object, and combining decadent porcelain with incidental materials such as jelly, chocolate and paper, she aims to elevate the status of nick-knacks and trinkets, making them into art objects and viceversa.
We just came back from a trip to Venezia where we had the chance to stay at the Centurion Palace, a five star hotel from the 16th century that retained the original architecture and cleverly mixing a radical modern interior design.
Situated in the heart of Singapour, Tangga House is a real paradise; its sleek, L-shaped design is centred around the garden.
It goes without saying that our favourite part of the house is the swimming pool. With its transparent walls, the interior of the pool is also visible from the living room. The first thing that comes to mind is to dive straight in from the first floor.
Patrick Mohr is a German designer who caused quite the stir when he used bald, bearded and in some cases, half-naked female models in his catwalk debut at Berlin Fashion Week. A self-styled eccentric, Mohr started off as a model before venturing into the world of fashion design. He graduated from Munich’s Esmod Fashion School in 2007 after which he worked for Henrik Vibskov in Copenhagen before starting his own label in 2008.
