Secret Stash!

It had been a while since a contemporary design initiative got me really exited. But here it is and I am happy .

Ruby, a Taiwanese classmate from the Masters programme here in Helsiki, presented this video by another Taiwanese designer, Yiting Cheng. The designs and the video are so well though and made. Very consistent. Enjoy!

[Thanks Ruby]

Ladies and gentlemen: Secret Stash!

The nice surprise was that I met Yiting Cheng a couple of years ago. We both took part at Designboom Mart exhibition in NYC in 2008. She is a co-founder of 22designstudio, wich designed the Concrete Rings. At the end of the Mart she gave me a Concrete Ring as a present and I gave her a gold Reminder Ring. Nice memory.

She is doing great, isn’t she?
