…I have really enjoyed working on this post…creative quality thrives at Nodus Rug, Italy. It was a pleasure to lose myself in the world of design and craft of rug making. Nodus website and Nodus facebook are great places to spend some time…I highly encourage you to do so for inspiration.
Nodus is a craft workshop with a cultural plan: the oldest traditions and knowledge in the art of carpet design are reinterpreted using the vision of the most innovating Designers and Architects, producing only unique pieces, promoting through events and publications in order to spread the knowledge to all about the new shapes and forms of a piece that has accompanied man since antiquity.

…it’s Friday, and many of us enjoy going to the movies over the weekend.

…Ciné 32 is a timber-clad, five-screen cinema in the south of France by Encore Heureux.
…Ciné 32 evokes both the arched facades of art deco picture houses and the herringbone walls of local tobacco-drying sheds.
…”Rather than a large infrastructure-type multiplex, we wanted to create the image of a collection of small neighbourhood cinemas together,” explains Encore Heureux.
…the architects comment: “Cinema has this unique opportunity to gather different people for a common but yet unusual journey. We wish to offer remarkable conditions for such a trip.”
…each theatre boasts a different color…
…I have the names of the buildings shown in the previous architecture and fashion post, Do You Know…
