VICTOR VASARELY SCULPTURE"This sculpture is by Vasarely. We got it in a Swedish auction in 1999. I love the form of it and I love the type grid"SONOS SPEAKER"It's a wireless music system that lets you play your own music, as well as Pandora. It has a great remote and iPhone application that you can control it all from"CIRE TRUDON NAPOLEON CANDLE"The grey bust of Napoleon is a candle by Cire Trudon and it's just funny. I like the tension of whether or not to light his head on fire"PHOTOGRAPH"This is a photograph by one of our favourite photographers named Lisa Kereszi. This one is a firework going off in a parking lot and I like it because you don't actually see the firework - only the initial launch, which gives it a behind the scenes feeling"2008 WEBBY AWARD"In 2008 we received a Webby Award for Best Online Video Series. At this point, we have done 200 mini documentaries where we go into the studios of creative people and find out what inspires them, what they do, and how they do it"TATTOOS"David Sena has done the majority of my work. He is a fine artist. I'm a tattoo collector and saw his work several years ago. I love working with him because he starts by drawing on the body and figuring out basic shapes. His work is tailored to the individual's form"NEST MAGAZINE COLLECTION"Nest magazine was published from 1997 to 2004 and in addition to always having creative and inspiring content, the team always went out of their way to present it in a fun and interesting way"
For more than eight years, Mr Rubin has been feeding his website, Cool Hunting, with content that he deems creatively noteworthy from around the globe. It is a platform that is "synonymous with seeking inspiration", and in Mr Rubin's eyes, "cool" is everything from chocolate covered crisps to stick-anywhere toiletry containers. Here, Mr Rubin shows us around his base camp and talks about what he calls "occasionally organised mayhem".
