Fokus Fabrik: A Finnish Fantasy

I’ve been meaning to write about this small Finnish company for quite some time. You need a fabric for your design that incorporates a kind of 80s collage DIY aesthetic?

Tree Curtain by Nienke Sybrandy is Exciting Piece of ASCII Art

Normally when I think of ASCII I’m immediately thinking of a geeky programmer spending his or her spare time making a portait of Elvis only using the letters E,L,V,I, and S. But this curtain is true art. I love it. Now if only I had a room to put it in…
