S and T...

First abc poster

Our first alphabet poster was the Abc character one and since then we've made at least another seven new designs. But we can't just let these characters go... Any suggestions what we should do with them? Anyone?

Went to Sweden for some inspiration. A few days away in a magical winter wonderland... some ice fishing, snowball fighting and mould wine drinking by the fire place...  Right! First of all, the lakes don't freeze over until January. November is mild and rainy... rainier than England in fact! And no one has fireplaces over there! So we cought crayfish in the rain and grilled hot dogs over open fire instead. Kind of cozy... in a cold damp way.

Something old but quite nice. Found this when we were tidying up. They were a series of post cards, rejected by the one who commissioned them. And then forgotten about.

Penguin Wallpaper

The family of Penguin Wallpaper is now complete. The clean, repetitive pattern gives the impression of extending the space where it is hung. First there was Turquoise inspired by the infinite, delicate hues of an Atacama Sky...

Next came reflection Silver. The Silver has some black mixed in for greater contrast, and the colour effect changes with the light in the room...

Wasabi Green was next on our wish list. the colour inspired by the Japanese Horse radish that  will only grow in pure, clean, free-flowing water...

And now to complete the line-up, Plum. A solid, hearty British Plum...

All four colourways were chosen to be neutral and calming, to show-off the Penguin pattern. They are all available from ISAK and selected retailers in standard 10m rolls. £30/roll.

A memory...

Rain makes us nostalgic...  It never used to rain like this... Here's a sunny Swedish memory.

Dad cought the fish, I hawled it in from the back of the boat. Grandad gutted it on the jetty. Mum went for a wee under a spruce. Mormor picked blueberries for dessert and my cousins collected dead wood for the fire. We would eagerly eat the perfectly flame grilled trout handed out to us on paper plates and drink fresh water, straight from the lake. By the time it got dark someone would inevitably have had too much moonshine, stumbled over their clogs and fallen in to the water. Those were beautiful happy days. In the morning we would be awakened early by the birds, crawl out of our sleeping bags and count the mosquito bites. The one with most had to empty the wee bucket. It never failed - it was always me emptying that bucket...

The Last Batch

The Blossom & Bill Classic Red tray introduced the couple as ISAK's global design ambassadors. It has been a very popular and well featured product which epitomises the ISAK design ethic. Clean, fun, vibrant and bursting with life. Blossom & Bill continue on their journey of discovery but The Classic Red Tray is coming to an end. The final batch has been pressed, coated and finished by hand. Each tray made from 7 birchwood laminates from the sustainable forests of Sweden. Each tray part made by Trolls in the heart of the forest. The Trolls are now busy making the Blue Blossom & Bill tray that will continue to be available for a while. Each tray comes slipped into a 100% cotton tote so that you can carry it home or to the dinner party and use the bag to continue carrying your swag wherever you go.

But for now there will be no more red at the factory. Pick one up while you can...

Starting to think Christmas...

We can't help but to start feeling a little bit Christmassy over here...


What a rainy windy miserable day!  We're going  to make ginger bread men to cheer us up. Now that Halloween is over - we can start making edible Christmas decorations. Finally!
