The Design Finds keep piling up:
- Hugo Tillman interviewed Chinese artists, then photographed them in 3-D interpretations of their psyche (top and bottom left images, via BB-Blog).
- Sika Designs combines modern patterns with traditional West African prints (via Clothes-pin).
- Alexander Lervik designed these tree-shaped streetlights with over 2000 meters of fiber optic cable. They can also change color, but white is the most poetic (via Designer’s Block UK).
A few more:
- Roxana Zegan transforms cracked streets into art with acrylic paint (via Design*Sponge).
- Up-and-coming designer Gudrun’s “Robots in Disguise” series combines patchwork and machinery. Her “Dia de los Muertos” series also reinvents the hackneyed skull (via The Coveted).
- Little Otsu has some amazing 2008 calendars. This one, by Lart Cognac Berliner, envisions months as territories, and a year as a physical journey (via Modish).
- Katja Prins’ jewelry mixes the organic and the mechanical (via dear ada).
- Game studio Three Rings Design transformed their office space into The Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Check out the wall-size map and the tentacle couch (via Boing Boing/Wired).
I’m consistently and pleasantly surprised at what you find!
I love this post! And I think I stared at yesterday’s writer’s room for like an hour…Keep up the great work!
Thanks, Esti! Your blog is pretty cool too.
Stephanie: check out their whole line! The prints are amazing. Btw, I looked several times for your auction on eBay and couldn’t find it. Have you done it already?
