It's certainly not for everyone, but if you love Erno Goldfinger’s brutalist dream, you can buy a one-bedroom flat in Trellick Tower in Golborne Road, London W10.
We saw the two collaborate on some Bus Blind fabric earlier in the year, but we haven't previously encountered Trellick With Margo Selby bag range at People Will Always Need Plates.
As the name suggests, the range is inspired by the facade of Goldfinger's iconic Trellick Tower, with a choice of colours and designs – a blowing bag, pencil case/make-up bag, purse, washbag and weekender bag. Oh yesa, there are also cushions too, which obviously aren't bags, but we'll not quibble over the detail.
The bowling bag is available in two colour options and sized at 35 x 23cm, with leather contrasting the Trellick cloth. £160 is the price for this, see the rest of the range on the website.
People will always need plates are long time favourites of this site, and now two of our long time favourite designs are available as notebooks.
Published by Anova ahead of the release of their book on 18 August, the notebooks feature either the Barbican or the Trellick Tower design printed on the cover. Each notebook contains 144 pages for your scribbles and own architectural inspirations and are 16.2cm. The books are finished off with an elasticated band.
The notebooks are priced at £6.98, but are currently available on a reduced price (the Barbican is currently the cheaper of the two) on Amazon,
His Trellick Tower Print uses his signature bright colours for the lights shining from the tower’s windows. The background sky has been given a pop art look with a single block colour – choose from either blue, yellow or brown. The print is available in two sizes: Small (11cm x 11cm print on 23cm square paper) priced £40 or Large (33cm x 33cm print on 50cm square paper) for £80

If you happen to be a fan of Brutalist architecture, you just might like to snuggle up with these Keeling House and Trellick Tower cushions by Wingate.
Featuring stylised images of the imposing and iconic 1960s structures, both are blue/grey and black prints on a cream cotton cushion and sized around 45 x 45cm.
You can buy both from Not On The High Street, £35 is the price for each. See an image of the other cushion over the page.
On Friday we ran the story that Gateshead car park is being demolished this week. As an alternative way of honouring this icon of brutalist architecture, how about this Gateshead car park pin, made by Bronwen Deane?
The piece is made from a combination of acrylic and silver, featuring a digital image of the car park that's been manipulated to get the strong colours. She also sells a bangle based around a different image of the same location.
Bronwen's work is all about the contrast between the severity of the architecture and the preciousness normally associated with a piece of jewellery. Take a look at her website for more pieces that featuring subject matter like tower blocks, Glasgow Barrowlands and, of course, the Trellick Tower.
No exact cost given but the price guide on the website indicates prices start at £25 for pins. You need to contact her directly to place an order.
