Rick Jordens Stamp Series
Graphic designer Rick Jordens has a passion for Dutch stamp design and finds enormous charm in these miniature paintings. Inspired by Wim Crouwel’s number stamps and Slothouber & Graatsma’s cube stamps, and his love for modernism and the art movement De Stijl, he created this series of stamp designs.

Teenage Engineering OB-4
If you’re as old as me, you probably remember listening to the radio and wishing you could rewind the song that just played. The OB–4 lets you do that by continuously memorizing everything you listen to on an endless looping tape. It seems like a strange feature, but that’s what I love about Teenage Engineering. They build these beautiful, functional products that are quirky, strange, and fun to use. I also appreciate the minimal design and UI of the OB-4.

John Pawson Home Farm
Architect John Pawson transformed the interior of his 17th-century farmhouse home in Gloucestershire into a beautifully minimal environment. The juxtaposition of new and old works nicely with the plaster walls, concrete floors, exposed elm beams, raw stainless steel window frames, and oak furniture. Openhouse Magazine has an interview with Pawson that gives more detail into the project.

Nicole England Resident Dog
Beautiful photography from Nicole England. I particularly love her project Resident Dog, a series of books featuring incredible homes and the dogs that live there.

Music
Rhythm & Sound Rhythm & Sound
This album is hard to describe. It’s a little bit reggae, a little techno, a little experimental, a little downtempo, and a little ambient packaged in a lo-fi sound. So… it’s lo-fi downtempo ambient, experimental techno reggae. 🤣 Rhythm & Sound is an obscure 2001 album by the mysterious German duo of Moritz Von Oswald and Mark Ernestus, who produced minimal techno before this album.
Favorite track: No Partial
