Every week we bring you a roundup of things we’ve seen on the internet we think you might like - just to keep you in the loop!

We’re enjoying some springy Springtime vibes this week, helped along by the work of artist Sabine Timm. You might know Sabine as ‘virgin_honey’ on Instagram. Working with found objects and subtle colour palettes, Sabine’s miniature sculptures, figurines, collages and little still life compositions are cute enough to make your heart leap like a lamb in Spring!

 

And talking of things that make your heart leap - take a look at this. The Vitra Colour Machine! A whizzing, colour-popping installation of mechanical spinning tops and colour wheels, all made from the materials and components of Vitra furniture designs, are installed in temporary venue, ‘CasaVitra’ in Milan - and we’d like to live there please. Let’s go!

 

Our friends over at Anorak Magazine are in the midst of their 10th anniversary celebrations and this week they bring their colourful touring festival, ‘The Drawing Imaginarium’ to London! As part of the D&AD Festival, Anorak Press founder Cathy Olmedillas and long-time collaborator Rob Flowers are delivering a talk on Creativity & Childhood at The Old Truman Brewery on Saturday 23rd April. If you’re in the area, the event is FREE! 

 

 

Along with the joys of spring come the ‘bleughs’ of spring cleaning - but, to get you in the mood for decluttering the kitchen cupboards and boxing up this season’s charity shop donations, there’s THIS! French artists Lucie Thomas + Thibault Zimmerman (Zim & Zou) were commissioned by the Washington Post to create this series of rather marvellous paper-craft sculptures for a candy coloured spring cleaning themed supplement. We’re off to throw coloured sprinkles all over the floor.

The Loop #21

This week we're excited about kid-friendly caterpillar snacks (yup), a radio that plays happy songs when you're happy and sad songs when you're sad AND we're giving a big thumbs up to Kano's new DIY camera, pixel and speaker kits.

The Loop #20

Now, this wasn't intentional, but it seems we've looped in to some serious good vibes this week. From dreamy inflatable sculptures, cats on billboards and a teeny tiny pro-skateboarder, get set to feel good!
