firain loves ding ding
mid-century modern design lovers rejoice! ding ding is a design studio in nottingham, uk, who focus on shapes and mark making and one colour printing.
the results are simple but gorgeous designs that are then applied to a range of useful objects. my shop firain is stocking the purses and pouches. the cushions and stationery have also caught my pattern-loving eye. taking inspiration from heavyweights lucienne day, lygia pape and john piper, i reckon ding ding are making their own mark in pattern design. its a labour of love to create crisp shapes and consistent design.
i especially love the shapes in the artwork of lygia pape. her minimal designs; learn more at studio international.
nottingham has a strong history of art and design. i've never been there so if you have some suggestions of places i should go, pop them in the comments! x jo
