Yayoi Kusama @ Tate Modern

Last weekend Mindaugas and I went to Yayoi Kusama exhibition which is currently on in Tate Modern. Not mentioning 30min queuing up for a ticket (5 cashiers were open), we have managed to get it. Inside of the exhibition as we have expected was – crazy. I never seen so many ‘art thirsty’ people running around, as all 14 rooms were full. I would like to share with you my favourite pieces that I photographed using my best undercover photography skills.

People Made – Nokia products that changed the world // Design Museum

I think to most of us Nokia associates with nostalgia. First phone, first sms… Today Design Museum is opening its door and invites its visitor to a journey back and to a coming future. By the way , the first mass-market phone Nokia 1011 is celebrating its 20th anniversary! Happy birthday!
Few shots from the exhibition opening night + New Lumia 800 phone.

Last week one of the biggest design talks – Typo London 2011 Places was storming the capital of England. With the most impressive speakers list – it was a total temptation that was difficult to resist.

Last evening, small Text gallery based in WC1 was completely packed with people who came to the opening of Imaginary Menageries exhibition, where 19 designers from all around the world were exhibiting their tongue-twisting interpretations.

Happy Birthday KIN!

On 12 November Kin Design was celebrating studio’s second birthday party. I popped in there to congratulate Matt and Kevin (I’ve met them, when we were doing a joint project, while I was still studding at Goldsmiths), and to say hello to my course friends: Avril, Clair and Max who work there. hahahaha funny enough, I’ve managed to park my bike in ‘somebody’s’ private yard, and when it was time to head home, I found the gates – locked  and I walked all the way home, while Mindaugas was slowly cycling alongside of me. What a silly cow…
