Can you Canoe? Well now you can! This store, located in Portland, Oregon has a beautiful website that features their world wide product collection. Their clean taste suggest the finest from an array of different categories. I think I see a trend here…
So many designers are taking the minimalistic road these days. You can see form the photos below that this is another “Scandinavian” inspired collection to the likes of “Ikea”, “Muji”, “MOMA” etc.
The constant theme that I see which is holding this line together is the ever popular “plywood’ used as a viable material in product design today. Plywood is pretty nasty in it’s raw form, but when it is taken to a higher level it becomes the cream de la cream. Remember the Eameschair? Ray and Charles Eames were pioneers in the plywood arena. Their first success story was this well known chair.
