I really like the use of the mushroom, in its completely natural form. It gives the inside furniture a natural and wild aspect. Furthermore, there's a magical feel to it, like those chair and lamp were extracted from a fairy tale. 

The technic used in the weave wood lamp is really interesting and gives a very rustic feel to those very design furniture. Nowadays wood is used as something really pure, designers try to completely distance themselves from the traditional rustic wood. But with this product, it's really the ancient and the new use of wood that collides.

Toddlers 'building'

Toddlers explore their world and learn from it. Their little hands need to learn how to grab and stuff. It is why it's important that their toys are suitable, and help them learn new skills.

"John Pawson said children love minimalist spaces. And he's right"

" Brutalist or minimalist architecture is better suited to families with children than you might think, says Will Wiles in his latest Opinion column. (...)

But a lot of preconceptions about kids and architecture are actually proved wrong when confronted with real kids. I recently interviewed the noted minimalist John Pawson. Minutes after we met, without any prompting from me, he brought up the scene in the 1990s sitcom Absolutely Fabulous when scatty fashion publicist Edina, played by Jennifer Saunders, is visited by friends who she remembers as ardent minimalists. Ahead of their arrival she desperately tries to tidy her house, fearing their disdain at its disorder. But they now have young children, and they arrive in a typhoon of clutter and disorganisation, their existenzminimum pretensions blown away for good.

Pawson has children, and raised them in a minimalist home of his own design, so I asked him if it was difficult to combine the two. He said no, it wasn't – children love minimalist spaces. And he's right. Children might be very good at creating mess and clutter, but that's not because they can only exist in messy, cluttered conditions. They like to have room to bang about and clear space to play.

"Some modern architectural styles seem to invite toddler-level appreciation"

I was reminded of the first time we took our son, then aged two, to visit the flat we now live in. It was newly built and unfurnished, all white paint and grey carpet. Not very interesting, but its emptiness seemed to fill him with energy, and he charged happily from room to room as if laying claim to to the place. Naturally we have since filled it up with things, and will not be opting for Pawsonian minimalism any time soon, but if you have the rare good fortune of enough storage space and picking-up time, I can see how it would be done.

Toddlers do have a knack for feeling at home in places, even in places where they should not. Their mobility, as well as their gleeful wish to dash about, develop much faster than the more sophisticated sense that different places have different rules and expectations. It's this lack of boundaries that can make them such bad adverts for children in general. But I'm not making any excuses for bad behaviour. The instance, a few years ago, of young children filmed clambering all over a Donald Judd sculpture at the Tate Modern springs to mind.

Though he has not yet endangered any masterpieces of modern art, our boy does have an undesirable fondness for wedging himself into tiny niches and gaps, such as the narrow defile behind bus shelters or between beach huts, or the recesses used to store fire extinguishers. It was necessary to grow new architectural antennae in order to spot these "toddlernooks" early. "

Pop figurine are the new trend. With its cute design and its many different caracter, every fan of every show ever displayed by the company wants one. They use the rare factor of certain figurine to put the price very high. From Disney to GOT passing by some new TVShow like Stranger Things, those figurine are wanted by kids but also by adults nerd.

Hamley's

Going to Hamley's was more of a pleasure than a task. I'm a huge child and I will always have an unconditional love for toys.

-1 floor

The first that could be seen entering the shop was the display on the stairs going down, forming a star was like a tunnel. Most of the basement level was dedicated  to the star wars franchise. Since Disney bought the right, SW merch is everywhere. From 100£ Lego boxes to virtual reality mask, passing by backpack and fluff, Star wars merch is no longer for nerd and adult fans.

1floor:

This floor was for toddlers, everything was with bright colours and soft. I found out that most of the old toys ( toys that are made since a long time ago) are in this section. 

2nd:

The second floor was dedicated to little girls, everything was pink. You could found dolls dolls house, diy product that's all. But off everything was pink or light purple. The lego collection for girls illustrates the stereotype the little girls: a little want to go the coffee place or the Mal, take care of her pets and drive her convertible. And the worse is that the collection ' lego friends ' doesn't even match with the normal one, they are not compatible

The Two last floor were mostly for older child, and when was filled with merchandise going from Harry Potter and Lord of the rings to DC Comics passing through WMA. Everything was meant to attract little boys with dark colour and violence displayed.

The strenght of the stone

In this children tale, the "stone"/brick wall symbolize strength, safety, and perseverance.The final house, the one that was the more time consuming to build, is the only one that resists the devasting breeze of the big bad wolf. The owner of the brick house chose to build it against the opinion of his brothers, that are being to confident. Whereas his brothers are playing the violin and dancing the 3rd little pig sings "You can play or laugh or sing, don't think you can make me sore. I'll be safe and you'll be sorry when the wolf comes to your door". Bricks make him and his brothers safe. It's solid and kind of eternal in this child tale. Stone is here presented as the most solid material, an eternal shelter.

Environment and Politics

" Guerrilla gardening is the act of gardening on land that the gardeners do not have the legal rights to cultivate, such as abandoned sites, areas that are not being cared for, or private property. It encompasses a diverse range of people and motivations, ranging from gardeners who spill over their legal boundaries to gardeners with political influences who seek to provoke change by using guerrilla gardening as a form of protest or direct action. This practice has implications for land rights and land reform; aiming to promote re-consideration of land ownership in order to assign a new purpose or reclaim land that is perceived to be in neglect or misused.

The land that is guerrilla gardened is usually abandoned or perceived to be neglected by its legal owner. That land is used by guerrilla gardeners to raise plants, frequently focusing onfood crops or plants intended for aesthetic purposes, like flowers. "

 

I really like the concept of environmental activism, kinda like gree peace but in a more peaceful way, Guerrilla Garden is really the proof that good people exist. It's a really efficient way of doing action: not asking for anyone permission.

Trendy colours

I identify copper, forest green, jade green, pastel blue and white as the hit colour of this season. The two greens are usually present in a room with plants, the white is a symbol of a minimalist interior, copper is found in the accessorise in the room or the furniture and blue is there to make everything look calm and happier.

The Legacy of the Mingei movement

 In The Mingei Idea (1933), Sōetsu Yanagi defines the movement as: "It must be modest but not junk, cheap but not fragile. Dishonesty, perversity, luxury, that is what Mingei objects must avoid: what is natural, sincere, pure, simple, these are the characteristics of Mingei. " 

This stool is one of the symbols of the mingei Legacy. With its modern and design twist, it still follows simple and pure lines.

Stonewall

/extract from Wikipedia/

"The Stonewall riots (also referred to as the Stonewall uprising or the Stonewall rebellion) were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay (LGBT) community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. They are widely considered to constitute the most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States."
