If I lived in Warsaw, Poland I would probably try to get a job at this studio, Thisispaper. The multidisciplinary design studio was founded by Alexander Zakharov and Zuzanna Gasior. Really liking these bags and rucksacks in their shop, particularly the labeling of these items. Here are a few things they have written about themselves on their website:

“At Thisispaper Shop we source and make items that are lasting, sustainable and well-designed, which we believe should be a norm, not luxury.”

“We value timeless over trendy, few over many and plain over fancy – that’s probably the most condensed way of putting into words what Thisispaper Shop is about.”

“All of them (products) are made with respect for the Earth’s scarce resources and little concern for passing trends.”

Product Tag Line:  “What we save, saves us”.

DahlhausDrawing inspiration from vintage and mid-century modern, artist Heather Dahl has created this collection of simple, irresistible designs found on bowls, mugs and vases. This Vancouver-based artist/ceramist sells her ceramics under the brand, Dahlhaus, and has exhibited and sold her designs through galleries and retailers all over North America. She says this of her work:

“The connection between a maker and their handmade product is so much more meaningful when it’s been made, start to finish, by one Maker.”

His style is a condensed approach employing a few shapes and lines and using a minimum amount of color. Noma states his style best he’s, “after the maximum communication with minimum elements”.
