I’m a big fan of Danish furniture, so I was excited to hear about House Industries latest project. Originally designed by Borge Mogensen, House and Stellar Works have teamed up to put a fresh spin on a modern classic. Made of oak and sapelli, these cabinets have been inlaid with a Neutraface Slab slashed-o pattern. The cabinets are available in two sizes and will debut this week at the International Furniture Fair in Milan.

I recently received a wonderful set of books from Pixar artists Jennifer C. Chang, Daniela Stijleva and CinderBiter art director Katy Wu. The collaborative illustration project entitled Round Robin consists of three books, each centered on a series of fifteen illustrations that are connected through an “add-on” word game. Each artist took a turn in providing a word inspired by the one previously supplied, until 15 two-word combinations were completed.

Todd Oldham who put together an excellent monograph on Charles Harper and Kiera Coffee recently released an exciting new book chronicling the work of the late Alexander Girard. This 672-page beast published by Ammo covers virtually every aspect of Girard’s distinctive career. As one of the most prolific and versatile mid-20th century designers, Girard’s work spanned many disciplines, including textile design, graphic design, typography, illustration, furniture design, interior design, product design, exhibit design, and architecture. Exhaustively researched and lovingly assembled by Oldham, this tome is a must-have book on Girard’s oeuvre.
Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design is the first book to be published on one of the greatest American designers of the 20th century, who was as famous for his work in film as for his corporate identity and graphic work. Saul created some of the most compelling images of American postwar visual culture. Having extended the remit of graphic design to include film titles, he went on to transform the genre. His best-known works include a series of unforgettable posters and title sequences for films such as Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo and Otto Preminger’s The Man with the Golden Arm and Anatomy of a Murder. He also created some of the most famous logos and corporate identity campaigns of the century, including those for major companies such as AT&T, Quaker Oats, United Airlines and Minolta.
Scott Campbell is an illustrator, designer, musician — and by the look of his work, a hands-on, analog, form-making lover. The current crop of work on Scott’s site is terrific. It’s clean, it’s messy, it’s bold, it’s abstract. It’s also very textural and dimensional, which I love. He’s great at using rustic imagery with clean layout and typography.
Halloween is here, which means it’s time to break out the Mork & MIndy costumes and the stale candy corn. If you’re throwing a party you might want to consider these semi-spooky posters by Methane to add to your decor. Both prints come signed/numbered by the artists and are available at the Poster Cabaret.
