Outdoor Furniture: The colorful 30-70 collection by Rafael Zúñiga for Tucurinca

What a nice, colorful and playful outdoor collection! It's the 30-70 collection designed by Rafael Zúñiga for Tucurinca. An outdoor collection of two-tone furniture inspired by the Colombian tropics. The brand employs Colombian people for their traditional weaving skills, which show up throughout the collection in a modern way. The playful designs feature steel structures with woven seats, backs and tabletops out of PVC rope where they use two contrasting colors to make more of an impact. The material is not only durable, it’s easy to clean and making it perfect for outdoors. Be Inspired .........

Art: Colorful artwork by French illustrator Malika Favre (03)

 While surfing this morning on internet I saw this colorful popart work from the French graphic designer Malika Favre. Love her graphic work! Malika Favre's distinct and often very sexy style has made her one of the world's most sought-after commercial illustrators. In addition to her personal creations, she works for clients around the world. Publications such as the New Yorker and Vogue, as well as international brands like Sephora with whom she has a growing, fruitful relationship. In her London studio, Favre creates work that is characterized by a striking minimalism: no line, no shape, no color is wasted. But within this minimalism, she creates images of startling beauty and depth. For more interesting work from Malika, see THIS LINK Be Inspired .......
