When Colin Parker first adorned the shirt of Edinburgh College of Art Football Club, I was not aware that his feet were not the only talented part of our accomplished goal scorer.
Parker specialises in furniture and bespoke carpentry for both domestic and commercial clientele. With a particularly sensitive eye for detail, palette and finish, the experienced craftsman works mainly in and around the city of Edinburgh in Scotland, however his workshop is situated in the East Lothian countryside. This rural location is a welcome departure from the industrial units of the city.
Interior magicians Wonderwall have an archive exhibition of scale modeled work where you can visit the spaces and places created by head Katayama, taking a closer look at his practice and techniques, his use of materials and the mood he creates, for client such as Uniqlo and Nike amongst other.

I’ve put a few more images up for your viewing pleasure other than that there is a really good article on Arch Daily about it.

I love this.
In the corporate world, usually there is nothing more plain or mundane than the surface on which employees tread upon. As such, they tend to be designed with their durability in mind rather than having any great aesthetic value. Carpets for Buildings aim to change this trend, and my word, they certainly have. Their creative solution uses computer controlled carpet printing machines to create special visual and spheric effects which are strikingly beautiful with limitless potential.

Royal/T is a playful collision of art gallery, café and retail shop within a 10,000 sf warehouse in Culver City, California. wHY Architecture designed the space unlike any other, playing upon traditional rules of gallery, retail and restaurant design. Rather than the ‘white box’ space, existing walls remained unpainted, and undulating ribbons of ten foot high acrylic walls contain the art and retail offerings in architectural vitrines.
