  • Turning Japanese

    A couple of new Japanese eating house concepts have got us thinking up a tasty jaunt. Our first stop is New York's Tonchin, where a cool new restaurant has opened bathed in dark indigo hues. We think we'd like to linger on our ramen there for bit. It's the work of Carpenter & Mason with LMNOP Creative providing crisp branding and we found it on dezeen. Across the pond to Valencia to a new take-out lunch spot serving sushi in sparse surroundings called Kento, the team behind La Manera. What we love about both of them is their reference to the traditional while creating vibrant contemporary...

  • The Perfect Medium

    One of photography's enfant terribles is the focus of an expansive exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and he needs little introduction. Robert Mapplethorpe: the perfect medium brings together portraiture, floral still lifes and erotica inspired by classicism and an unrelenting quest for beauty no matter what the subject. Scope it out! Image: Robert Mapplethorpe Self-portrait 1980, gelatin silver photograph. Jointly acquired by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and The J Paul Getty Trust. Partial gift of The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation; partial purchase with funds...

  • This Is: Yolky

    There are eggs a go-go since our Sunny Side Up post so thought we’d serve up just a couple of faves. Firstly the potentially asphyxiating but certainly spicy Rottingdean Bazaar are doing great things for fashion with a sense of the absurd. And then there's golden egg sauna in Kiruna in far north Sweden which we thought must have been laid by a massive goose but turns out it was cleverly conceived by art duo Bigert & Bergstrom. We found that one on dezeen and are currently hatching a plan to fly north.

  • Gathered Leaves

    Known for his documentary work in and around his homeland of Mississippi and Niagara Falls, Magnum photographer Alec Soth has just opened his touring Gathered Leaves exhibition at the House of Photography at the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg. It's a thoughtful and deep look at daily life revealing intimate portraits full of emotion. He's also keen on publishing with his Little Brown Mushroom imprint, which offers Winnebago Workshops on wheels for teens. Cool.

  • B is for…

    We didn't know we knew what borosilicate is, but if we cast our mind back to high school science labs and beakers it all becomes clear. Tom Dixon is taking the substance to giddy new heights with his sharp range of organically shaped vessels called Bump. We'll take a full set of teapot, teacup, water jug and vase. Head over to In/Out for an information rich article and more objects to covet.

  • Enchanting Darling!

    The pièce de résistance of window shopping is, and we think without doubt, at 24 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris. It's here that Leïla Menchari has worked her infinite magic creating enchanting window displays for Hermès that go beyond merchandising and enter the realm of theatrical wonderlands! We wish we could sashay into Paris to experience an exhibition showcasing 35 years of superb displays at Grand Palais on through to 3 December 2017 ourselves, but for now we're happy ogling outstanding images on Trendland and getting the lowdown on Vogue.

  • Empathetic Perspective

    The succinctly titled What is Bipolar Disorder? animation is a sensitive short made for TED-Ed that gives valuable insight into this medical condition. Teamed with a script written by Helen Farrell, it's a beautiful rendering referencing 1960s and 1970s medical journals, Bruno Munari and Oskar Fischinger using simple animation and sound to great effect. We say bravo to Uncle Ginger for their mastery of form, function and feeling. We were enlightened by It's Nice That.
