Design you never would have thought of.

These are a series of glued pvc tubes assembled in a perfectly proportioned installation, and exhibiting a killer sense of color, perception and estimation. (see that littlest hint of lime green near the waist area?)

Conceptualized and conceived by Korean artist, Kang Duck Bong, our jaws literally dropped when we saw this. sometimes, we have difficulty estimating how much money to bring on a shopping spree.

Typo Error – Design flaw or fact?

What do you think? Do you think typeface / font size / kerning makes a difference?

The opposite of banal.

who woulda thunk that?

bird shaped scissors designed by Hiroshi Kajimoto.

Conscious Design.

Tonight, my parents put a thought in my head that anybody and everybody can consume great design, great value & contribute to social good at the same time.

Instead of going to a shiny new store to replace worn, tired living room furniture, they traipsed off to a halfway house founded and managed entirely by reformed & rehabilitated ex-prisoners needing a fair chance at life.

On top of a lovely solid wood sofa set, they also provided a job, supported a small, much needed business venture & boosted some severely deflated egos. Let’s not even go into the monetary rewards.

The next time you might need something, go the Salvation Army, or support an emerging designer or a halfway house supporting abused women. Make like Sarah Cihat who salvages crappy plates from Salvation Army & turns them into something entirely delectable.

The less we consume mass, cheaply produced product, the more we are saving & contributing to the world.

A Shining example of Form & Function, literally.

Sometimes it takes a really awesome brainiac to come up with something like this – it’s a perfect example of unexpected use of materials and an out-of-this-world inspiration to come up with this genius idea. Of course, the Oregon Ducks won the game, with a little help from their main men, Nike.

okay, so what the hell is FUTURE NOTION?
