MakMak? Yum Yum!

OK, so we realise this is a little left of field… but can you blame us!?

Ke-Blog has a sweet tooth and it’s well known we cant pass up a good cake or ‘roon so when we discovered MakMak we decided we just had to share the love (though it pained us to part with this little secret!)

Exotic, creative and imaginative little bursts of joy the MakMak range now boasts:  Mocha, Rose & Rhubarb, Quince & Grape, Vanilla, Salted Caramel, Black Sesame and also Raisin Toast.

We reckon Carlos at MakMak has started something devilishly good!

2010 looks also to be another big year  for one of our favourite Spanish designers: Jaime Hayón.  The self professed “designer artist” has been recognised “Designer of the Year of Scènes d’Intérieur”, which this year is celebrating its twentieth anniversary within the Maison&Objet fair in Paris.

Hayón worked for eight years at La Fabrica, the research centre founded by Oliverio Toscani, where he filled the post of director of the Academic Design department. His earliest works on his own date from the year 2005, with ceramics and furniture. He later expanded his field of action through the design of interiors and installations.

Nanimarquina rolls out the rugs at Milan 2010

(Franco Forci / For The Times)

This year Nanimarquina departed from boundary-pushing rugs that simulate thick fields of spring flowers or thousands of red rose petals scattered on the floor. Instead of such highly tactile shapes, the new Digit collection by emerging designer Cristian Zuzunaga took the form of flat rugs in deeply saturated hues. The color blocks, Nanimarquina export manager Benoît Anicet said, were an extension of last year’s craze for pixilated patterns. But hung like artworks on the exhibition booth walls, the carpets didn’t look derivative at all. They were confetti frozen in the air, a celebration in abstract.
