Dear Mint Readers,

For the month of October, Mint is proud to present ‘Growing Vases’ a design lighting installation by Japanese architectural and design studio Nendo for Czech Bohemian glass company Lasvit.

The installation takes on a playful nature exploring the impractical and the incomplete. The metal pipes used by the glass blower remain in the blown glass and are transformed into abstract flowers and branches, alluding to a whimsical glass forest breathing with life.

Doesn’t that sound enticing? Well watch this space for more updates!

I cannot believe that the London Design Festival 2011 is over! It seems like just yesterday we were frantically preparing for it. Here’s a little recap of Mint Explores.

I am thrilled to announce that the opening night was a success! With the turn out of approximately 300 people, the night was buzzing with good food, good wine and good cheer.

So here’s a big THANK YOU to everyone who attended and contributed in making the night one to remember.
