You’re not truly ‘all caught up’ if you haven’t seen BURO.’s top five Instagram posts of the week! Truth is, our editors’ daily mission is to connect with ease, to share with expression and to experience with conviction. So get inspired, feed your imagination, soul and scroll!
1. Ladies, watch your skirts!
If you still think sustainable fashion can’t be fun, check out the Swedish brand Hodakova! She made her debut ahead of Stockholm Fashion Week by deconstructing and converting existing garments where transformation in the design becomes the focus of the product. “We celebrate the future by looking back and rethink the tradition with clothes made by the time.” – Hodakova.
2. Did you say Data painting?
The future of jewellery design: Zak Sheinman sets the standards very high for jewellery design. Central Saint Martin’s graduate and 3D visualiser has previously collaborated with Motley to bring a cartoonish humor to classic pieces under the name ‘Playful Protest’ (make sure you check it out) and it reinterprets the large inflatables used as barriers in peaceful protests in silver and gold vermeil.
3. Pantone Northern lights
Some videos are just too soothing and satisfying for the soul and that’s why we like them. We stumbled upon Emma’s account ‘@dreamlandwc’ only to discover her magical world, after months of experimenting with various binder recipes and colour combinations; she perfected the process and started up an Etsy shop while pursuing a degree from Grand Valley State University in West Michigan. What started as a part-time hobby developed into her full-time small business that has helped fuel the creativity inside of people from all over the world.
4. Pianos get a futuristic makeover
Meet the ‘Pegasus Grand Piano’ by Luigi Colani, a German industrial designer whose long career began in the 1950s when he designed cars. The case of the piano is made of reinforced fiberglass resting on a plexiglass pedestal and finished in high gloss ebony with brass hardware and hinges.
5. Dali’s Melting Watch got nothing on this piece
The Melting Watch by Dali was an example of the surrealism movement. And because we’re all craving some surrealism in this new digital world, meet Faig Ahmed, an internationally-recognised artist from Baku, Azerbaijan who is best known for his surrealist weavings which integrate visual distortions into traditional oriental rugs.
