Wanting: Wooden Spectacles

November 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

Light and finely crafted (best looking plywood I’ve ever seen), these wooden pieces are more than just eyewear. They are ‘spectacles’!

I spottedĀ them while shopping in and around the famed Viktualienmarkt in Munich. For more colours, shapes and wood species… click here. I’m partial to these, Terra Mata in Nut, but might be persuaded towards the Wenge finish too! Decisions, decisions…

And if you’re wanting even more of this look…check out this earlier post on wooden timepieces, er, watches!

Wanting: Wood Watch

Reinventing the wheel… in watches.

AB Aeterno has introduced a new line of arm candy made out of wood. Reed sandalwood to be exact. There’s a warmth to the timepiece that I like. Warm to the touch as well.

I think I want it. How about you?

My love of walk-ups pulled me into this Dwell article… the red brick facade with the large, ornate cornice moulding at the very top! Probably one of the best cornices I’ve seen. But if you read this article, you’ll find that architect Jeff Sherman worked long and hard in revealing the beautiful detail in this apartment. From harrowing to heartening.

In the end, what I love most is its simplicity. The rough hewn floor boards opposite the tongue and groove ceiling. The painted pressed tin opposite the warm glow of copper sheathing.

I can see why he’s sitting out on his stoop… I think he’s rather proud. What do you think?

Where Am I?
