Back to the 80’s- Memphis
Is this is the end of the world? Are we ready to the upcoming apocalypse? Neon Radioactiv colors, plastic and nylon materials to protect our body from the dangers.
Like the Memphis group who recognized by the innovative designs drew the group art-Deco styles, pop art and kitsch of the fifties. And to illusion your eyes Holograma was everywhere!! Examples from Frame magazine show: WHAT’S THE MATTER?
WHAT’S THE MATTER SHOW- FRAME MAGAZINE
Technology and human body- Interactive objects
“Do objects sometimes dream about themselves? What if we could enter their dreams?
Instead of asking objects to make us dream, why don’t we consider their own dreams?”
What will be the relationship between us and the objects?
Words by ECAL- university of art and design show: WHEN OBJECTS DREAM
Office environment- Boring collection
Do we still need office? What are our needs in our spacework?
Lensvelt and Space Encounters presents BORING COLLECTION during Salone 2016 :
Grey furnitures and many many white papers on the floor or being thrown by people - the feeling was” the boss left the office, let's do a party!”
office life itself is given the lead in their campaign. Like the countdown to the last minute before five o'clock, and the paper wad, the universal symbol for boredom on the work floor.
Boring Collection does not pretend to be more beautiful, in fact; Boring collection does not claim any attention. To the last detail, the furniture is a modest soft grey, and all shapes are archetypical, straightforward and discrete, with only one goal: to draw the eye to the things that actually matter. Because it's not about the furniture.
Another example is 50 Manga chairs made by NENDO. The installation of 50 steel chairs abstracts archetypes of manga comics. The chairs are happy, distressed, embarrassed and surprised. They leap and bound. Each chair has his own personality . That makes us thinks about the way we sit on a chair. Such a simple furniture but we sit on it so all day.
