Souvenir Doll With a Nasty Face

Souvenir Doll With a Nasty Face

Look what we stumbled on the other day. This Souvenir Doll is SO well made (by hand). But. What a nasty and unfriendly face she has! Or is she just sad? Never mind. It is some fine Folk art! N’est pas?

We think she’s from Poland but we’re not sure.

Making MTV Bumps

Here’s a tip for when you’ve got some time to spare.
Provide Mtv with a new Bump made by you. it’s fun! and very easy too.

We’ll let you in on a secret. When we get bored at Mimi Berlin Headquarter’s we make a Bump with and for Mtv nowadays. You can choose icons, backgrounds and draw to compile a short clip.
As they say at Mtv: Remix the Internet to make art. 😉

Alchemist Matter by Laurence Humier

At Milano Design Week 2015 we’ve met Laurence Humier, a Belgian architectural engineer. She works as a designer in Italy, providing services and products in the field of industrial design, communication services, and education. She presented and designed The Alchemist Matter, an educational tool for children from 6 to 12 years old to make their first steps in chemistry, learning with creative, hands-on activities how science can be useful.

Droog at the Hardware Store in Milan

Droog at the Hardware Store in MilanDroog at the Hardware Store in Milan

Droog Design presents hardware with a twist during Salone del Mobile, Milan 2015: Construct Me!
Droog focuses on the smallest parts of furniture, functional elements that are usually not noticeable and often invisible. Our screws, hinges, nuts, nails, brackets and other hardware are super functional – in some cases we even extended their function – but they also add value, character and a richer narrative. In our created collection, you will find nails that reduce the risk of hitting your finger, two way tie wraps, fancy hinges and screws that smile at you. They give flavour to simple DIY work, revive existing furniture and challenge the designer. The collection of 210 hardware items will be presented in its natural habitat, an ordinary hardware store. Come, see, and purchase our “screwy” smileys from the gumball vending machine.
