Zeitlos – Berlin

02. Marcel Breuer Typewriter Table.

Words

I’m always looking for both furniture inspiration and a great shop that collects a large selection of fairly specific items. Zeitlos – Berlin is most definitely both of these things but, for me, price and proximity mean that it functions best as the former. If these limitations are less of an issue, it's an amazing treasure trove where you can buy some very rare and appealing design classics from a variety of iconic eras.

Mauna Kea Dual Tone Slub Knit Socks

01. Grey and red.
02. Green and grey.

Words

Melange socks are nothing new, to say the least, but these are a unique take on a much utilized form. The multiple two-tone pairings offer a number of great colour choices, while a loose knit, achieved with machines that produce 60 stitches rather than the standard 170-180, means a thicker yarn can be used, which adds flexibility and makes them much more comfortable.

Anna et Salomé by Adrià Cañameras

Info

64 pages, 210 x 255mm
Softcover, section sewn
First edition of 500
Printed in Iceland
Published by Lawson's Books
Cover painting by Michael Docherty

Words

Released today by emerging Scottish publisher Lawson's Books, Anna et Salomé is a new body of work from Barcelona-based photographer Adrià Cañameras. Having previously issued Par Hasard, a 24-page monotone offset zine as part of Fibra's Sr. Dalton series, this title offered him the opportunity to explore a singular theme in more detail. Section sewn in a first edition of 500, with a cover produced in acrylic paint by seasoned artist Michael Docherty, the book's central focus is the Mediterranean. Developed from a personal project which allowed Cañameras to reflect on the environment he grew up around, the images were captured in various locations along the Costa Brava in Spain and on the French island of Corsica. Shot between June 2012 and March 2013 and described by the publisher as "part survey, part celebration and part meditation," Anna et Salomé functions on abstract and geological levels alike, representing an incredibly mature body of work that belies the photographer's years.
