Marcin Bialas is a Polish artist who’s specialized in etchings and drawings in black an white. Among his large production, a recurring theme is dissected buildings and surreal constructions, such as infinite staircases and labyrinthine interiors, an atemporal combination of G.B. Piranesi and Brodsky/Utkin prints. The structures seem unfinished, yet already in ruin, able to plunge the viewer into an uncomfortable feeling. Somewhere between nightmares and theatrical settings, Marcin Bialas’ retro drawings explore the dramatic potential of different projections and points of view.
It’s not something we’re proud of, but, come on, admit it, we’ve all left it until the last minute to buy a cheap tent for the upcoming music festival, knowing that we’re probably going to just leave it there once we’re done, haven’t we? Well, if you haven’t then you are the noble exception to the rule, much like New Zealand-based Designer Nikolai Sorensen.
Having professed a strong grievance about the way that the carefree, festival-going hoi polloi continue to abandon their cheap, temporary canvas homes, Sorensen set about putting us all to rights with his very own tent that, we’re sure, nobody will be throwing away any time soon.
With his focus firmly set upon creating a tent with sustainability, style, longevity, and quality at its forefront, the Under Cover Camper was born; a two-person tent perfect for any occasion. Boasting durability in the wettest of fields and on the hottest of holidays, the Under Cover Camper places the value back into owning a luxurious, stylish tent. And you never know, with the knowledge of this stunning tent sitting in your trunk you may even be tempted to escape for a few more countryside getaways this Summer – so long as there’s a Wi-Fi hotspot nearby, huh.

“I’m not sure if there is any more hackneyed subject in photography then nature. Maybe portraits… Landscapes are my favorite theme. I hunt for them near my home, by the way. And every time I am delighted. Graphic compositions of fields, roads and meadows, lakes like puzzle cuts, surprisingly symmetrical patterns on a frozen lake – these are Polish patterns.”
