Design: Nocturne, a stunning special edition of LS50 Wireless by Marcel Wanders

Designed to Stir the Soul Before the Music Begins
KEF has collaborated with Dutch designer Marcel Wanders to launch a music-orientated version of its superb speaker system. ‘Nocturne’ is a stunning special edition of LS50 Wireless. The inherently circular nature of KEF’s Uni-Q driver and musical notation symbols subtly blend with unique architectural and rhythmic elements to create a sophisticated design. 
"There is an orchestrated tempo to this medley. By allowing for individual discovery of the musical elements, the design possesses a distinctive rhythm all of its own" says Wanders. Be Inspired ......

Art: Inspiring artwork from artist Markus Nass, Part 02


While surfing on internet today I saw this beautiful and expressive artwork from the German artist Markus NassLove his bright and fresh coloruse. Take a look below at these paintings. Aren't they beautiful to see? Markus is using here epoxy resin combined with pigment and acrylglas. I am really touched by his inspiring artwork. Below you will find more information about his background. Earlier I wrote another blog, called PART 01Be Inspired.

More about the artist 
Markus Nass (German, b.1979)
Markus Nass, a recent graduate from the Staatliche Akademie der Bildendende Künste Karlsruhe, has developed a highly individual painterly style. Choosing to work with synthetic materials, Nass adds pigment to epoxy resin, which he then pours onto an acrylic surface. The clear, jewel-like colours are carefully chosen for the ways in which, combined and intermingled, they produce harmonies and dissonances, surface and depth, light and dark. Nass plans a basic structure for each work at the beginning of the production process but a central aspect of his approach is to allow the different colours to flow together, creating myriad layers. The resulting forms suggest birds-eye views of landscapes, cell structures or underwater realms. However, the transparent glow and otherworldly character of Nass' work ensures that the intimations of reality are always balanced with purely abstract elements. Ultimately, Nass' work is a self-reflective investigation of colour, light and form, the very fundamentals of art. Written by Felicity Lunn (curator, UBS-Art-Collection)
