Designer Lars Amhoff of The Substain sent this awesome piece over.
The tabletop is made from a massive piece of acorn wood, crafted out of a full plank. The wood is finished smoothly and coated with a clear protective coating, to protect the wood and art against fluids and scratches. Topped off by a hand-screen-printed piece of art, done by McBess. Held is the table by four heavy duty legs, hand bent and welded from rough steel. Finished with a clear coating to prevent rust. The legs are bolted into the wood by 2 thick 8mm screws. They can be taken on and off for transport and shipping. The size of the table is 90x55x45cm, which is the size of a coffeetable. “

Michael Williams has a great post entitled The Greatest Brand Book Ever Made about the incredible book recently published by Parisian publisher Devambez about Goyard and their 160 years of history. Only 233 editions were made, and they each cost a whopping €6000– available by special order.
Each book is painstakingly made by hand by the finest artisans in France and comes in its own individually numbered, fully custom Goyard case.
It’s been incredible to see this brand manage their growth so meticulously.
KAWS personally designed the dial of this special Horizon, and nobody plays the line between art and time better than Ikepod, so it is a perfect collaboration for both parties. This is the type of watch that could be massively collectible down the line.
$14,000 and available at Westime in Los Angeles.
In 2007, a tiny Brazilian sneakers blog started tapping into the kicks obsessions of its citizens, but as we are with most things, we were on their potential from the get-go. Two years later, it’s built up a veritable reader base, who head directly to it to hear first word on the country’s newest arrivals and to read the daily musings from some movers and skaters in the industry. Nike Brazil, one of its most ardent fans, has given it a flattering gift for all that dedication on its anniversary: to let it design its own Air Max 1 called the Lanceiro, making it the first model of this type to be designed by Brazilians. Pulling colorful cultural inspiration from the blog’s home state of Pernambuco, especially mangue beat, the state’s musical invention in the ’90s that mixes traditional maracatu and ciranda sounds with hip-hop and rock music, the Lanceiro is a real eye-catcher. Designer Fabricio Machado looked to the vibrant beads on the costumes of Pernambuco’s rural spearmen Caboclo da Lanca for the dots on the upper of the shoes and added in a speckled midsole to imitate mud from the state’s famous swamps. To switch things up a bit, the laces and inside soles are swappable for a version with the beadwork pattern. The site has full information in English on the development of the shoe including some amazing photos of Caboclo da Lanca, and promises to have information on where to buy the Lanceiro shortly. An inspiration picture after the jump.
