We get often asked the question of where we get our inspiration from. Welcome back to Our Top 5 Findings this week where will give you some insights of a few internet readings we pick every two weeks. They’re not Interior Design related only, but cover a wider array of fields. We hope you’ll find it interesting.
1// Blurring the line between real and fake, art and design
Have you ever heard about Pataphysics? Honestly, we did not.
