Thai jewels – Fonthip

While in Bangkok I had the pleasure of visiting the International Arts & Crafts fair 2015 where many very talented designers showcased their products. I found this jeweler – Ms. Fonthip Tangviriyamet – that had a wonderful assortment of various intriguing jewelry.

Fonthip’s style is delicate and almost airy. Fantastic workmanship and you can really tell that nature is a great inspiration since it shines through in all her designs. It is corals, autumn leaves, oriental flowers, message from earth, garland, stopped motion to mention a few of her lines. My favorite is coral. And Stopped in Motion. Which one is yours?

Please check out the website at www.fonthip.com, you won’t be disappointed. I promise.

Denmark in Japan

 

I have to admit I have a thing for Japan. I love the people, the food, the courteousness, the order, the attention to detail…the list can go on forever.

On a recent trip I was roaming around just looking at whatever caught my eye, and I enjoyed looking at the products at this shop in Kyoto… and then it occured to me that it was Danish design (!). Not that I should have been so surprised, I really enjoy Danish design as well. A lot. But I just didn’t expect to stumble across it just then and there.

By the way, if you are heading towards Kyoto, try to stay some nights in a ryokan, that is an experience that you shouldn’t miss, but if you want to save some $ you can stay really comfortably at a hostel. I stayed at Piece Hostel Kyoto. Awsome place! I totally loved it. It is a friendly, no fuss, squeaky clean place with oh-so-comfy-beds. With friendly and super helpful staff as the cherry on top.

WAMP Budapest

When in Budapest, don’t miss WAMP. WAMP is a community event/design fair that takes place twice a month (on Sundays) in a beautiful building on Váci utca during winter and outdoors at Erzébet tér during summer.

WAMP is a hub for emerging Hungarian designers and presents them with an opportunity to show, and sell, their work.

WAMP has two “legs” (if you will) – design and gastro. The Gastro part is –as the name reveals – anything “edible” i.e. jams, chocolate, bread, wine, spirits, oils, sweets, cakes etc.  Important for the gastro section is that all fine food is nicely packaged, organic and served in style (oh, it also contains cool kitchenwares – not edible really, but handy when making all these nice gastronomical stuff in your own kitchen.

When you want to visit WAMP (among other things because there is sooo much more to see and do in Budapest – DMKA will keep you posted)

it is a good idea to stay at a cosy hotel with beautiful design in the central parts of Pest. We would like to recommend Estilo Fashion Hotel, right at Váca utca
