We bring you a regular little round up of cool things we've seen on the internet we think you might like. You know, just to keep you in the loop...

Now, isn't this dreamy? Still in development (you can't get your hands on them *just* yet), these retro styled, typewriter-inspired keyboards by Lofree have our hearts fluttering! Complete with satisfying mechanical key sounds and soon-to-be available in a bunch of almost edible colours, we're joining the queue. You can find out more about them and sign up for updates at the Lofree website

This just might be one of London's most Instagrammed art exhibitions of 2017! Ending on 18th March, you still have time to take a trip to the Victoria Miro Gallery to see Do Ho Suh's 'Passage/s' for yourself. Inspired by the idea of 'home' (as a place we live but also as something we feel and experience), Do Ho Suh has replicated the architecture of places he has lived and worked in colourful, translucent fabric. We're pretty sure you'll say, 'Wow!'. 

And because we're feeling extra colourful this week, this feels like the perfect time to introduce you to LA-based sand artist, Naoshi. Yes. Naoshi creates remarkable artwork using shiny, colourful sand ('sunae' in Japan). She creates beloved characters that are bonkers and bright and really rather wonderful. Through their expressions, they each tell little emotional stories about what it's like to live in the world when you feel a bit different. You can see more of Naoshi's excellent sand illustrations on her website. Enjoy!

Since the last edition of The Loop, Dick Bruna, creator of iconic children's character Miffy, died. That news made us feel sad. During his 60 year career, Mr. Bruna produced 124 picture books - 32 of which were about Miffy and went on to be published in over 50 languages and sold over 85 million copies worldwide. 

We thought it might be nice to leave you with Five Minutes of Miffy...

This week in The Loop we marvel at Melissa Kaseman's gorgeous photography project, Preschool Pocket Treasure, in which she documents the contents of her three year old son's pockets. We also step back and appreciate KITRA's excellent large scale murals and environmental installations and we contemplate following Handmade Charlotte's instructions on how to make a DIY 'Off The Grid' play house!
