Enea presents its new identity, designed by Clase Bcn. This new image reflects the furniture company’s Basque origins in distinctive, contemporary fashion and striking, spartan style. The project builds upon a charismatic corporate typeface and a colour range taken from industrial manufacturing to create an identity that spurns the usual industry cliches and sports a strong personality in the world of soft-contract furniture.
49 landscapes, 73 beards and the Skinned Head of a Young Bull has been published as a part of the European Cultural Happening ‘Mix it Up’, where invited artists and designers from a range of different professions were asked to interpret artwork from the collection at the National Gallery of Denmark.
The premise of the assignment was to choose an artwork from the digital collection, which covers 7 centuries of art history, representing art from all over the world. To choose only one of the many wonderful artworks seemed an impossible task, and this is why the book focuses on the 112 paintings in the collection to analyse and interpret as a whole.
This publication is an attempt to organise and categorise the paintings from a range of criteria – from the number of cats and dogs, to how many dead queens there can be found in the artworks.
This book is not based on art history or theory, but simply an admiration of beautiful paintings. This is a tribute – a layman’s way of categorising art.

DEAR is a zine that collects, archives and immortalises in print, all things fun and unique. From casual conversations to visual essays that aim to assault your senses, to basically anything that piques our curiosity, DEAR celebrates the unusual and the interesting in the spirit of fun. With a healthy pinch of humour and just a dash of seriousness, DEAR is for the everyday person who wishes to uncover the little oddities in everyday life.
For our inaugural issue, we visit nostalgia by exploring the theme Lost and Found in our salad-bowl of a nation, Singapore. Mixed cultures, forgotten identities and the quest for meaning in retrospection are uncovered and probed into by contributing artists Ang Song Nian, Aik Beng Chia, Caleb Ming, Cleo Tsw, Debbie Ong Gie, Ernest Goh, Esther Goh, GT Gan, John Clang, John Nursalim and Yang Tan.
This project is supported and partially funded by the SG50 Celebration Fund. It is not a commercial project and all proceeds from sales of the book will go towards cost-recovery of the remaining funds required for the success of the project.
