A bespoke book, part of a legacy work for #basedupon, a bespoke architectural/sculptural practice.

Our clients are organizations that want to use English-language messages for their fundraising, strategic planning, grant writing, or other communication needs. Helping people to create, shape, and express their ideas can be a challenge when working across cultures. Many times, the focus on telling the perfect story becomes an obstacle to telling an effective story. One approach that enables us to build stronger narratives for clients is to draw upon storytelling from a diverse range of sources, including folk tales from other cultures and folklore from around the world. Drawing stylistic inspiration from other cultures allows us to break away from conventional limitations in our thinking. Stories also enable us to find hidden value, deeper connections, and greater relevance in the materials we develop. #saturdayspark, #inspiredby, #folklore, #favoritebooks, #whenwewerekids, #folktales, #storytelling, #newideas, #basedupon, #oldwisdom, #communicatingthoughts, #whatwedo, #expressingideas, #untanglenarrativethreads #whenyougetstuck, #writersblock, #lossforwords, #noinspiration, #notmakingsense, #wheretostart, #turnthepage, #knowyourmotifs, #embraceyourarchetypes, #broadenperspectives, #mapthestory, #framethetale, #expandhorizons, #followyourmuse, #tellyourstory

We believe that unity and interconnectedness is real. But the world that we observe, is a world in which everything is very clearly separate.

The White Tondo is more about the layers of the earth and what might lie at the core of something if we’re prepared to go into it, peeling it back layer by layer. It’s a patience thing. It’s a courageous patience. It’s going deep, you know.

‘Our intention is to affirm this life, not to bring order out of chaos, nor to suggest improvements in creation, but simply to wake up to the very life we're living, which is so excellent once one gets one's mind and desires out of its way and lets it act of it's own accord.’ John Cage . What is the role of art in social change? 'The peacock's tail makes me sick!' said Charles Darwin, who thought beauty didn’t really had a role in evolution. Our current paradigm explains evolution as adaptation where the fittest survives but failing to explain why nature is so beautiful and what is the function of beauty. It took the concept of sexual selection for Darwin to explain that, a process that has more to do with aesthetic taste than adaptive fitness. . We are creators, that thrive in the beauty of the natural world and that are constantly ‘falling in love’. But how this drive towards beauty can help us grow from the inside out and bring forth a new way of being? We will continue exploring this fascinating enquiry together at @a.place.for.kin in November. Why don’t you join us?

That’s why I think it relates, that’s why it’s enduring for me – the oneness and fragmentation pieces. At the same time, they’re about making the insignificant, significant.

Wallpaper * August 2018. The ‘Handmade ‘ issue has become one of the magazine’s well-known franchises. In this instance they ‘tasked designers and makers, ‘writes Acting Editor Nick Compton,’ with thinking about the rest, repair and elevation of mind and body. It was an idea we tagged ‘Wellness + Wonder’. If that sounds po-faced, it isn’t. There’s plenty of wit, surprise and charm. Swipe to see some highlights of the accompanying exhibition at this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan. Photography by Michael Bodiam; interiors by Maria Sobrino. ‘Relax, reboot and rediscover your boing’ with a ‘Forever Young’ playground and loop-the-loop by Maarten Baas and Henge, a home gym called ‘Infinite’ wallbars by Charles Kalpakuan and Gebruder Thonet and III by Based Upon which provides the cover image. Based Upon is twin brothers Ian and Richard Abell who work from London. ‘Inspired by primitive landscapes, (it’s) designed to rocket you into a meditative state.’ Good function for a cover... Oh, and the back page shows the ultimate chocolate bar and case by Romance Chocolate and Bozarthfornell. Now that’s what many call ‘happiness and wellness ‘. Brand & content director: Tony Chambers. Editor: Sarah Douglas. Art Director: Jessica Rose. Photography director: Holly Hay. Digital director: Anthony Thornton. @wallpapermag @tf_chan @hols_hay @mramilnes @amybettyheff @carlyrgray @isa_kountoure @basedupon #basedupon #wallpapermagazine #wellnessandwonder @bozarthfornell_projects @bozarthfornell
