Fernando Romero

Mexican architect Fernando Romero has designed this modernist gem outside Mexico City and his eye for color, space, and detail is flawless. I am dying for this domino wall! Check out this beautiful film by Matthew Donaldson on Nowness here

michael anastassiades

While some people listen to electronic music and hear nothing more than a series of repetitive blips and beeps, certain people also fail to see the beauty in minimal design. They somehow equate an excess of ornate detail, color and pattern with craftsmanship. Minimal does not mean simple, rather it clears away all the clutter and distraction that bad design hides behind, to reveal a purity, a thoughtfulness, an appreciation of material and form that is striking yet not overpowering. In my opinion that is the most difficult thing you can master as an artist - honesty. Michael Anastassiades does it exceedingly well.

the world of jee young lee

Korean artist Lee creates worlds that are larger than life, vividly colored yet with a darkness and chaos seeping beneath the surface. These carefully imagined dreamscapes are meticulously executed in stunning handmade detail, with no digital trickery or after effects. Beautifully surreal.

French artist and designer Pergay began making furniture in the 60s, stainless steel becoming her material of choice. Her gorgeously sleek and minimal pieces look effortlessly modern and blur the line between furniture and art.
