Sarah Van Gameren’s design explores the manufacturing process and how accidents can also be beautiful. She is currently the designer in residence at the London Design Museum.

The results are amazing, with each ‘chandelier like’ candle containing it’s own individual intricacies.
If you’re in London you can go and see her work at the Design Museum or I noticed yesterday a big dipper machine in a shop next to Design Guild on Kings road.More
We love hitotoki. So here’s the heads up. hitotoki is now accepting submissions for their London pages, so any readers from London with an interesting story about the big smoke should head on over to the submissions page and start typing. Also, I have it on good authority that hitotoki are also looking for a few illustrators to illustrate the new London articles. Send them an email if you think you’re up to it.More
I really wish I had a mac right now. Naked Light provides node based image editing, not dissimilar to video compositing software. What this means is, as they put it on the site, non-destructive image editing which basically allows for multiple levels of undo as well as adding and removing filters at any point in the document’s workflow. Damn cool! Not a photoshop killer obviously but, Naked Light looks like it will be fun to mess around with.More
