kawamura-ganjavian’s Binpan

I discovered the BINPAN a while ago and since both Jim and I share a love for simple, functional and well-designed products, especially the ones that make our daily lives just a bit easier, I simply had to share…BINPAN is a dustbin when it stands up, and a dustpan when it lies down; a very convenient hybrid for office and domestic environments. Created by the design and architecture studio Kawamura-ganjavian, which was established in 2000 by Key Portilla-Kawamura and Ali Ganjavian…they are located in Madrid…click here to find out more about them and to see more of their work!

Summerhouse Skane by LASC Studio

When the guys over at LASC Studio converted an old farmhouse in Oesterlen, Sweden, they not only added lots of light by adding larger windows facing the garden and courtyard, but they also opened up the rooms and added some amazing color accents. As Jonas and Johannes of LASC Studios put it:”One of the narratives are the colors that are never boldly present, but appear and disappear.” Well said guys…to check out more of their projects, go to their site, here!
