nss preview: eieio + ceramics at MAD

paper and ceramics have to be two of my favorite areas of design, so i’m psyched to share some images from jean at eieio (click here to check our her gorgeous oakland home), who will be showing new metallic ink gift wrap and gift boxes at the nss, booth #1736.


i’m also happy to share some images from the museum of art and design in nyc. the mad museum recently opened a show called “object factory: the art of industrial ceramics at the museum of arts and design” that examines the creative collaborations between contemporary designers and some of the world’s oldest porcelain manufacturers. the MAD is one of my favorite museums in the city so this is definitely a show to check out if you’re in town. details are right here.

Everything here is stunning. I’d love to see Object Factory in person… *sigh* and that gift wrap should be on a wall somewhere.


I definitely need to check out the MAD as I haven’t been since they opened. This exhibit definitely makes me want to go even more!

Love the paper, and those ceramics are amazing, I love how the pattern becomes the negative space.. Will totally check that show out.


Beutiful selections from a fantastic exhibit! MAD is one of my very favorite museums in the city, can’t say enough good things.


Ami and Dov’s plate is beautiful and SUPER clever. They have all kind’s of fun ideas, from garbage can chairs to car headlight lighting fixtures. Check out their website: http://www.amidov.com.
