red + party of one
on the red tip, here's tord boontje's latest project for kvadrat. nectar is a gorgeous fabric being distributed by textile powerhouse maharam. it's a bit plasticy so i'm still torn on how best to use it- i'd love to have it as a shower curtain (i wonder if that idea is offensive to the designer who probably intended something far more high end for it). either way, it's fun to see something so illustration heavy integrated into textiles. do you guys have a favorite textile company? i'm pretty impressed with maharam and kvadrat these days...
[just a quick side note- i spoke at the brooklyn blogfest last night and got some emails post event asking about how many people worked at d*s. it seems most people thing there's a team d*s. it's actually just me here, which explains the need for a break once in a while. i get a lot of emails about what the "crew" at d*s is doing so i thought i'd just clarify- just me here, the lone sponger! however, i do get wonderful help with the newsletter from kate at three square. so, when you send or receive an email at d*s, you're talking to directly to me, not an intern. just wanted to clarify! xo, d*s]
