Food designer Kristiane Kegelmann creates intricate edible sugar sculptures that combine art with amazing flavour combinations.

Kegelmann's work is colourful and expressive, drawing inspiration from her surroundings and adventures.
 
Her creations include a stack of floral-edged wedges, a stripy monochrome tower topped with a red flower, and a delicate tree – all of which look too good to eat!

She says: ‘as a food designer I am interpreting the patisserie in a completely new and unrestrained format. With my sculptures and performative installations I want to question the rigid ties of the patisserie and then incorporate such discoveries into an artistic context’.

If you were in central London last week, you might have spotted some rather innovative shop windows.

Some fantastic architects transformed one of London's top retail destinations for this year’s RIBA Regent Street Windows project, creating ten bespoke window installations.

The project for the London Design Festival showcases a vast display of colours, light and material; one window by Knox Bhavan Architects and Susie MacMurray saw Molton Brown's window gain a series of glass bottle chandeliers suspended above a sea of roses.

Take a look at the full display here; which is your favourite window?




German artist Felix Jaensch has turned one of our favourite-ever toys into incredible free-standing statues.

Felix builds colourful LEGO bricks into mesmerising animal sculptures - not letting an inch of detail go to waste, from tiny beaks to pointy claws.

The parrot sculpture in particular really catches your eye, due to its bright colours and lifelike detail.

Felix starts most of his pieces from scratch, however, some are supported by the helpful LEGO Kits from MOC Nation.

See his full collectin of LEGO animals here and let us know your favourite.




If you're in London this weekend, or Manchester next, you can go even further with some holiday-themed pop-ups.

Two tourist boards have created fun experiences bringing a bit of the exotic to autumn: South African Tourism has launched a virtual reality pop-up in London’s Southbank Centre, immersing visitors in shark diving and more, while Trinidad and Tobago Tourist Board is staging an island pop-up in Manchester's Trafford Centre, featuring the full island experience from relaxing on a golden sandy beach to enjoying live jazz and limbo challenges.

Both boards are taking the immersive approach to promote their sunny destinations - what do you think of these experiential ideas?

British designer Es Devlin has created a dazzling maze of mirrors inside an old warehouse in Peckham.

Her Mirror Maze, which includes an exclusive scent from Chanel, divides into four rooms separated by oval portholes.

The exhibition blissfully disorientates attendees as they venture through darkened, mirrored spaces, which include passing through a gigantic projection of Devlin’s design process, spiralling up a reflective staircase, and being immersed in a bright red room filled with smoke.

The innovative installation is open until 25th September; read more about it here.




easyJet's latest campaign takes a surreal look at our holiday excitement at the start of a journey.

The 'Why not?' ad sees a traveller dreaming of a whirlwind of psychedelic activities, such as waterskiing down the stairs of an aeroplane, dancing on a giant keyboard, and encountering an angry man made of flowers.

After all that fun, the ad returns to where the real adventures begin: in the seat of an easyJet plane on the way to a new destination.

Watch the full ad below and tell us what you think of it.






London Design Festival is in swing, and today, we’ve been exploring the Shoreditch Design Triangle, which brings together the best of East London’s creative talent.

First, we stopped by Place Your Bets, an interactive experience by data design agency Signal Noise. With London’s population set to reach 10 million, Place Your Bets looks at what data says about our city, now and in the future. Visitors can use coloured stickers to visualise their opinions about Brexit, hipsters, and other aspects of London life, revealing some interesting trends as the week goes on.

Creative Clerkenwell’s London Design Souvenirs pop-up shop celebrates the city in quirky collections by a range of artists. Their handmade creations include paper snowglobes with intricate characters and fun slogan-engraved pencils. The pop-up also features small-space solutions and bespoke pegboard fittings by Kreisdesign. We asked designer Nikki about her reasons behind her convenient invention, discovering she wanted to create storage for her many pairs of shoes!

And finally, another SDT spot to look out for: ElectroCraft, which explores the craft of electronics and electronics made as craft, asking the question ‘what are electrical products and appliances like when they are not designed primarily with mass-production in mind?’ The thirty-plus pieces of work displayed here include a slow breeze machine by Studio Tord Boontje and Wonseck Jun and Studio Drift’s delicate ‘Dandelight’ creations.

London Design Festival runs all of this week (until the 25th) ‒ find out more about the Shoreditch Design Triangle here and explore our dedicated Pinterest board here.


Thousands of people flocked to the street of Cardiff this weekend for Roald Dahl’s 'City of the Unexpected' – a series of events to celebrate the 100th birthday of the much-loved author.

The city was transformed into a magical world when a giant peach appeared in Cardiff’s city centre on Saturday morning, followed by a series of  magical parades and theatrical performances.

When darkness fell, the streets lit up and the giant fruit was launched into the air as part of the night time show.

Read more about the event here; did you visit Cardiff last weekend?




From sleek skyscrapers to cloistered cathedrals, London is known for its distinctive mix of architecture.

Time Out London has put together a list of the best buildings in the city, celebrating some of the most beautiful and iconic places in London, such as the Shard and Tate Modern, along with some more unlikely destinations such as pubs, Tube stations, and council estates.

Buildings which feature on the list include The Lloyd’s Building, which saw Richard Rogers take the building's traditional interior features and relocate them to the outside edges of the tower to create an eye-catching, quirky façade.

See the full list here and let us know which is your favourite London building.




Contemporary artist Cristóbal Pérez García has created a series of mesmerising oil paintings, bringing famous cities to life with extraordinary detail.

Cristóbal creates his pieces at dawn and dusk, allowing him to experiment with the light and a stunning palette of pastels.

The energetic oil paintings capture urban landscapes from a pedestrian’s perspective, offering a different view of London, New York, and Barcelona before/after locals and tourists hit the streets.
