CONTEMPORARY STUFF


Shop the latest spectacular jewelry of Acne Studios, we’re especially fond of this Ring Marioline gold.
While many brands have begun to offer attractive bicycle lights in recent years, few offer the ease of use that Lucetta does. Designed by Helsinki-based Emanuele Pizzolorusso for Italian design company Palomar, Lucetta is a set of small LED lights that secure to your bicycle—or any metallic surface—using magnets, and nothing else. Snap the lights to the bike to turn on steady light, snap them back once to switch modes to slow flashing and once more to set fast flashing. And once the destination is reached, the tiny lights connect to one another for carrying, forming a single object hardly bigger than a roll of nickels. More on Milkbottle.today

BOOKS

Shelter, How Australians Live. By Kara Rosenlund on Milkbottle.today Kara Rosenlund travelled all over the country to seek out authentic, appealing and intriguing Australian interiors and has documented them in the book Shelter, with her trademark honest and poignant style. On her year-long journey, Kara wandered off the beaten track, across regional and remote Australia, to find the houses she wanted to document-houses whose beauty and charm told their own story. Each stunning image gives you a glimpse into their history; the abandoned cottage saved from decay by its determined new owners; the shipping container repurposed into an eco-friendly dwelling; the cliff-top hideaway overlooking the sea; or just a few of the many shacks dotted around the country, which have had new life breathed into them by their loving owners.
Kara Rosenlund is an Australian photographer, stylist, adventurer and travelling vintage wares retailer. She was the youngest person to win the much acclaimed Canon Australian Institute of Professional Photography’AIPP Photographer of the Year’ title, and built a successful freelance career taking photographs for magazines and advertising campaigns. Her work has also been included in many prestigious exhibitions and acquired in permanent collections both locally and abroad, most notably a solo exhibition at the Sydney Opera House. Relocating from Sydney to London in 2007, she pursued her love for interiors through prop styling, sourcing and buying throughout Europe. Returning to Australia in 2010 she created the much loved ‘Travelling Wares’ caravan pop up – housed in a 1956 caravan called Frankie, touring the nation selling utilitarian vintage pieces for the home. Kara was recently named by UK interiors ‘bible’ Elle Decoration as ‘A Modern Day Martha Stewart‘.
