Since they just launched their beautiful new website, what better moment to mention our friends at Node Berlin Oslo, the acclaimed design studio based in, erm, Berlin and Oslo. Talk about trans-European partnership here, but the climate remains the same: cold and grey. Node, in the meantime, are kind people, and they are one of [...]

And before you know it [...]


Ai Weiwei gave a recent interview in the current issue of Der Spiegel, which you find here (alas, in German), talking about the accusations of tax evasion, his time in prison and the effects on his life. It is a moving conversation, and also an encouraging one, since it proves: In spite of everything that [...]
