Design Museum London's Extraordinary Stories about Ordinary Things

Situated on the Thames, moments from the 1894 Tower Bridge and the 2002 City Hall, the Design Museum's location invites reflection on London's design and architectural history. Once inside, the focus shifts to often mass-produced items that are generally people-sized. Its new exhibition, Extraordinary Stories about Ordinary Things, takes a close look at iconic and lesser-known objects. The museum is scheduled to move to new digs in Kensington in 2015; the Extraordinary exhibit of about 150 items will be on display until then. Some of the collection's objects can be seen in the Design Museum Collection app.

We recently had the chance to visit Williamsburg design shop, The Future Perfect's, newest west coast outpost in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco (check out our first report here!) and it certainly did not disappoint. Inside, a hearty mix of well-established, international, not-so-well-known, and local designers, such as Piet Hein Eek to Alfredo Häberli to Fort Standard, comely crowded the black and white walled small space.

Travel Guide: Barcelona, Spain

Bubbling with an electrical energy and warmed by the Mediterranean sun, Barcelona is unsurprisingly one of Europe’s liveliest destinations. It has a world-famous soccer team and some tremendous tapas, but it’s really the incredible history of artistic innovation that draws the crowds. A unique language and culture—plus a bit of a chip on the shoulder—helped Barcelona develop a peerless style that’s intricately woven into its architecture.

Barcelona’s beating heart is its spirit of trendsetting, its modernist soul.
