More prizes! Another prize by the Swedish Assiciation of Architecs is The Siena Prize. This prize is for outdoor environment architecture. This year's winner is "the Beach" made in the Rosenlund Park in the middle of Stockholm, Södermalm. Architect is Bernstrand & Co. Just love the idea of a beach in the middle of a city.

I really really like the glass Jackie designed by Åsa Jungnelius for Kosta Boda.

Straight Lines Design

Straight Lines Designs Inc. design mostly childrens furniture and describe their design as "whimsical and unusual". I'm not sure if I would like to have their furniture in my home but they make you smile. Like the table "Bad table".

Ida Sjöstedt

The Swedish designer Ida Sjöstedt just made a beautiful collection in collaboration with Monki. Here are some images of her own autumn collection. Her clothes are a mix between kitsch and elegance and are "for women who don’t take dressing up too seriously".
