Max Lamb was born and raised in Cornwall, England, in what he describes as a particularly isolated and beautiful part of the UK. His childhood was one spent outdoors: on the beaches, in the woods, digging in his parents garden, or on his grandfather's farm in the Yorkshire Wolds, where physical labor was celebrated. These days Lamb is tapping innovative technology to craft furniture for the likes of Acne Studios and Kvadrat.
Poland has yet to achieve a reputation as a design mecca, but change is in the air. Since its entry into the European Union, the country has gained access to more educational opportunities and resources, and likewise, the EU is tapping the country's often cheaper production facilities. As part of Gdynia Design Days, Interior Design was live on the scene exploring the best design the sixth most populous member state of the EU has to offer. Here are five young Polish firms to keep an eye on.
Digging down deep to really understand a client's DNA is what drives OEO Studio, says Thomas Lykke, the firm's creative director and head of design. Drawing from a background in design journalism—he once was interiors editor for Wallpaper*—Lykke founded the Copenhagen-based multi-disciplinary design firm in 2003 with managing partner Anne-Marie Buemann. OEO now has a wide range of clients, ranging from Georg Jensen to the Michelin-starred restaurant Kadeau and several Japanese firms.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
