Sorry for the silence lately. I spent the past one week in London and enjoyed my stay there tremendously.
The trip is especially important to me as I felt I've reached a point where I need to open my mind up again. I'm not sure if you've heard, but did you know anecdotal evidence has long held that creativity in artists and writers can be associated with living in foreign parts? I think it really made sense as the few days away from Singapore is enough to perk me up. The food, the history, the art, the architecture... everything in London inspires. And it just made me want to return as soon as possible, ha!
While showcasing key moments in his development as well as at major recent projects, David Chipperfield's breathtaking exhibition at London's Design Museum also validates - via his studio's intricately-crafted architecture models - that nothing matters more to a designer than the fine details.
Javier Mariscal's rich and diverse body of work (displayed at Design Museum) spans kooky cartoon characters to stunning interiors, from furniture to graphic design and corporate identities - definitely a visual feast for my eyes.
Creative ideas abound everywhere in London - in the shops, on the streets or at the museums. Whoever knew the three little pigs could be that glamorous?
