TEENAGE

Just watched the trailer for Matt Wolf’s “Teenage” and it looks like such an interesting and also thought-provoking movie. A mix of rare archival material, filmed portraits and 20th century diary entries it deals with the coming of age in a historical and cultural context.

“Before the ‘Teenager’ was invented, there was no second stage of life. You were either a child or you went to work as an adult. At the turn of the century, child labor was ending, ‘adolescence’ was emerging, and a struggle erupted between adults and youth. Would the young be controlled and regimented, or could they be free?” (Soda Pictures)

Bookbinding

Lovely little film about the intricate and meticulous work that goes into hand binding a book.

Céline London

Wow, this is almost worth a trip if you’re interested in rare retail design. As Vogue UK’s Jo Ellison reports:

“Is it worth it? [the opening was long time due] Pfffft. Don’t be vulgar. Naturally enough, the resulting store is as elegant and thoughtfully desirable as the stealth luxe aesthetic Philo has so successfully nurtured in her collections. Minimal, but not without colour, nor unexpected texture, the simple facade, veiled by a translucent rose-pink resin screen, invites customers into a 300 sq m “selling area”, demarcated by dividing walls clad in clear marmorino plaster and floored with a seeming parquetry of 6,000 multicoloured marble tiles inlaid with semi-precious stones.”

A part of the interior was designed by the Danish artist FOS. Read a little blogpost about him here on the inspiriting LINE&JO blog

Nardi keepsake boxes

Beautiful boxes found in House of Waris‘ selection of rare objects. “Nardi, a traditional Venetian family business started in the 1920s, gained recognition as a first class jeweler thanks to their artisan techniques inspired by the work of 18th century Venetian goldsmiths and use of exquisite raw materials. Nardi jewelry and silverware are still made today in the artisan workshop behind Venice’s Piazza San Marco.”
