Geometric market finds

We found these at these lovely wooden shapes at the market last week. A real steal at six bucks! I'm not sure what they are but have some memory of them lurking from my childhood, school perhaps? The wood has a beautiful colour and grain. I'm always surprised by the funny things we find when treasure hunting.

The painting behind  the shapes was bought from a community art gallery on another country treasure hunting trip that weekend. Community galleries often have wonderful work that is ridiculously affordable. This beauty cost $35! We got to have a chat to the artist (Ann Williams) who told us the painting is based on the principals of Sodoku, interesting stuff!

The shapes remind me of the work of super talented Adelaide designers daniel-emma and their range of amazing desk accessories. I love the simplicity of their collections and the whole story of their brand. Despite working at some of the most amazing design studios in the world (Marc Newson, Thorsten Van Elten and Committee), they have chose to live and develop their brand here in little old Adelaide. It is a fantastic reminder that anything is possible no matter where you live.

A great interview with the talented couple can be found here on from The Design Files.
