Surreal Dreamscapes By Jee Young Lee, South-Korea
Whereas traditional photography submits extracts of reality to our eyes, the South Korean artist, Jee Young Lee, offers excerpts from her heart, her memory, or her dreams.
For weeks , sometimes months, she creates the fabric of a universe born from her mind within the confines of her 3 x 6 m studio. She does so with infinite minutiae and extraordinary patience and without any post-editing. Her work is a deep self-reflection for the artist and a means to explore her psychological identity.
Take a look at Jee Young Lee‘s photos and embrace her enchanting world!
The Secret of Nike’s Success: The HTM Triangle
"The role of design at a company is to allow you to recreate yourself, to allow your company to find a new way of success before the old way fails.” - Mark Parker
What’s the secret behind Nike’s success? The answer is HTM, a three-person design collaboration between CEO Mark Parker, designer Tinker Hatfield, and creative consultant Hiroshi Fujiwara.
In the first article of 032c magazine's brand new website, we read a great story that covers the 032c team’s exploration of Nike’s headquarters to discuss the HTM collaboration, its methods, and impact on the company and footwear design.

Simplicity in Beauty & Form with Sputnik Studio, Valencia
We are suckers for simplicity in design and adore the texture of cork. When two of these parameters exist in one product, we can’t help but share it with the world.
With a lacquered steel base and a curved seat made out of environmentally friendly cork, the Sputnik - named after the first satellite to be launched into space in 1957 - can be used both as a side-table and as a stool.

FvF Interview with Designer Extraordinaire Mario Lombardo, Berlin
With a reputation as one of Germany’s leading designers and editors, Mario Lombardo possesses the art of translating conceptually. He does not create for, but with people and translates their stories.
In this FvF workplace portrait, we learn how Mario places confidence in an office culture of togetherness at his studio. Stirring clear of all conventional interview methods, he believes in his employees and trusts that the development of skills can be taught and learned along the way.
Comparing preparing food with design, we have a fascinating talk with this Berlin-based designer and artful thinker on FvF Workplaces. Hier geht’s zur deutschen Version.
Thank you Mirjam Wählen for introducing us to such an inspiring character!
Creating New Meaning with Photographer Nico Krijno
"I think I have the ability to perceive a person’s core quite easily. I’m really not interested in smoke and mirrors. I’m more interested in the truth." - Nico Krijno in Dazed Digital
Nico’s photographs are at once hyperreal and otherworldly. By showing things out of context and by marrying opposites he tries to force a conversation that combines irony, humour and melancholy.
With his girlfriend Mignonne as his biggest muse, Nico intents simply to make something pleasing to the eye out of something practically useless in an attempt to create new meaning. Check out his website here.
