Jump From Paper is a new line of unique handbags that uses thick graphic outlines and bright colours to look like they are a 2D illustration.
They look like they’re completely flat from the angle the bag has been drawn/made. In reality, they actually have room for your camera, laptops and everyday accessories. This particular bag is called ‘Cheese’.
There is a whole collection to choose from. Have fun in your selection!
I’m in a mood, where I just want to see and experience ‘natural beauty’. Organic shapes, timber materials or leather. Understated with great detail or expression. Here are a couple of products that inspire me as being considered and somehow linked closely to nature.
They ooze craftsmanship and great sensibility.

Australian Designer Peter Mclisky laser cuts fun and funky objects from raw steel in his Melbourne studio.
Within his studio, there are sculptures everywhere, roughly clustered into groups according to size or theme, all in various stages of transformation from raw steel to the quirky colorful characters for which Peter is known. His latest innovative products are the very funky Barcode magazine rack
and the Rivet table lamp
made with industrial rivets and available in powdercoated fluoro yellow/green finish.
Rivet table lamp made of steel.
Peter uses an industrial grade machine that cuts the metal using a high pressure water jet. As a student from the sixties his creative influences include Warhol, Litchenstein, Oldenburg, Pantone and Marimeko. With a graphic design background he developed a love of simple shapes and bold colors that resulted in his fun and very funky sculpture range. Peter works with a number of finishes including blackened steel, hand painting and powder coating. He is best known for his shadow range and he creates all of his work to order.

Lucy Amber is the architect/designer hand making beautiful rope bowls, vessels, lamp shades and vases by weaving rope into objects. The brand is known as Thread Architecture for obvious reasons.
The genesis of Amber’s sense of form, texture and colour began in childhood, experimenting with knitting, sewing, painting and pottery. These artistic roots led to her career in architecture and has progressed to the creation of sculptural, functional rope lampshades, vessels and vase sleeves. After 15 years in architecture, Amber has taken the opportunity to pull together the various threads of her creative life and fashion a career as a full time artist and designer.
The current collection focuses on the cross pollination of rope, knitting and macramé, resulting in works of colourful art that are evocative. Thread Architecture crafts tactile pieces which engage the senses; art you can touch, feel, see and use. A vase, a vessel, a lampshade or a one-off objet d’art, the bespoke pieces enhance and complement existing decor and encapsulate what happens when form and design merge with creative talent. Available at Sooper Design in several colours including red, yellow black and charcoal grey.
