There is an incredible amount design inspiration out there but make some room for the eclectic, cool and unbearably thoughtful work of Piet Hein Eek, a dutch designer that works with scraps, reclaimed wood and more. His acclaimed work has been noted, most recently at the 2011 ICFF show happening now in New York. From a home office interpreted as a log cabin to the Door Project to a streamlined brass and glass case for artist Guido Geeleen, his portfolio also expands to include reclaimed scrapwood pieces, ceramic accents, plywood projects, aluminum style as well as collaborations and more. Oh and his shop and restaurant are equally design friendly.
I love e-flipping through his work and noting the textures. Small spaces benefit greatly from small details and dimension. It's a way to add more depth and almost expand moments of a smaller room.
