If you're a purest minimalist and love contemporary graphic art then Massimo Colonna’s new work will make your feet tingle with excitement. The stark simple compositions have a slight modernist 1940s and 50s aesthetic, using classic architectural references and an almost zen-like approach to the composition. This is then complimented with a quirky sense of suspended motion. The presence of the feather-light solitary balloon, the bouncing basketball or the paper planes flying in formation all create a mesmerising sense of tension, particularly when they are set against their static surrounds. It's beautiful, simple and contemplative.
If you're feeling indulgent you can even purchase them from The Cool Hunter.

Kapsimalis Architects are responsible for some of Santorini's most exciting modern architecture. The rough volcanic landscape and the changeable weather conditions have a huge impact on the design process, and ultimately the final design.
The new Mobilia branding is a great example of well considered minimal design and typography. This sophisticated approach creates a brilliant parallel to the craftsmanship, detail and minimalism seen in the Mobilia furniture collections. The stunning design work by Caterina Bianchini Studio plays with primary colours, mixed pastels, illustration, patterns and a handcrafted typeface.
