Design Work, Conversation with Magazine DEKO

In summer, while I was in Riga,  I met the editor-in-chief  of Latvian Interior magazine DEKO Agnese for a conversation about design. We talked about Latvian design, Scandinavian design and how does  it feel to be a Latvian designer in Scandinavia.

You can read it in the last issue of  DEKO

Design Finds, Happy Waste

This semester students from Exponeringsdesign  Westerdals are working on the project The Truth is Green.

General/long-term goal of the project is using creative and innovative teaching methods develop and educate the youth who will be competent and motivated to live ecologically – produce and consume environmentally friendly and simultaneously healthy products. My students are developing the concept of the exibiton “Yesterday’s Rubbish – Today’s Cherish”.

There is sneak-peek of the story of the happy waste. More to come,  just follow us!

Design Fail, Lacoste Windows Oslo

Yesterday I discovered ( better late than never ) that in September 2010, Christophe Lemaire stepped down and Felipe Oliveira Baptista succeeded him as the creative manager of Lacoste. Since than Lacoste has experience a new developmen of the brend and has a new exiting line Unconventional Chic , that looks like a sporty sister of Carven, that I was writing about yesterday.

This morning I decided to check out Lacoste Oslo Hegdehaugsveien 34 . Unfortunately in Oslo  nothing tells us about the new development of the brend. Windows are just boring, boring, boring. We really need a new approach in visual merchandising in the city, don’t you think?
