Beatiful waste

Beatiful waste

Foekje Fleur is the author of these vases and she is Dutch. The phenomenon of the trash vortex made her think and, as denunciation, she decided to take out of the waters in her city the usual and everlasting detergent bottles in order to create china replicas. You can buy them here. I am about this far from crashing my piggy bank…

I found these /Snego pieces so beautiful. One can pile them, play or build with them. They are tinted with wine, turmeric, beetroot, blueberries, cabbage, onion skin…

Take advantage of tillandsias

Our new word of the day is “tillandsia” this genus of infamous magical plants that can feed from air and its humidity. Many are those having fun thanks to them and just a walk around Etsy, is enough to see what can be done or bought.

Ladies, kindly remove your hats

Ladies, kindly remove your hats.

Please, applaud with hands only.

Loud talking or whistling not allowed.
These are images from the beginning of the 20th century. They were used in silent films to explain the viewers which would be the social behaviour expected during the screening. They come from a collection published by the Library of Congress in Washington. How interesting… people used to struggle with hats back then, right? …

‘Displayful’ Hermés

‘Displayful’ Hermés

Hermés is one of those daring clients…

A bizarre museum of Natural History, made out of folded paper and leather cut-outs from the brand’s ateliers in Paris. This work, by Zim&Zou.
_ We found such pictures on Vogue.
Chema Madoz‘s minimalistic but efficient work.
_
The volume interpretations of water visual effects by Bonsoir Paris studio. How clever: these are windows in De Bijenkorf department store in Amsterdam, where water is ubiquitous.
_
This beautiful and lightweight installation by Pamen Pereira that “reflects on the phenomena fleeting nature and the link between instant and eternity”. There you go.
_
The now classic moving display created by Tokujin Yoshioka.
_ We found the pictures here and there.
And let’s not forget the impressive and overdone stagings by Leila Menchari, who has been Hermés’s official decorator for years now.

Modular furniture fun galore

Modular furniture fun galore

A cousin of mine made me discover Cubit’s website, for she was delighted with the shelves she had just created and ordered there. Cubit is a Düsseldorf-based company with international delivery. They let customers conceive and produce their own furniture, within a tremendous range of possibilities, thanks to an easy and user-friendly on-line tool. Shelvings came first, followed by modular sofas using the same mechanics.

Searching…

Searching…

I was cleaning my computer when I found these photos that I took time ago. This is our friend Giuseppe from Nariz studio when he was performing a graphical creation session for Ciudad Código (you can see this project in github). I liked how beautiful was the random matching of his head and the images from the projectors in the room this was.

The daring tree

Its name is Eucalyptus deglupta and one would say it was directly taken out from a painting. Among other uses, its cultivation serves to produce paper bulb. That makes sense.

The colour of music

The colour of music

How many records did I buy just by their cover. Mind you, the website Predominant.ly allows to find music according to the predominant colour on its cover. Tastes and colours…

Fibonacci zoetrope sculpture

Fibonacci zoetrope sculpture

Video at Vimeo
These sculptures have been designed by John Edmark using the Fibonacci number sequence. He used a 3D printer to create them and has animated them as zoetrope. The effect is more than amazing.
The funny thing about the Fibonacci number sequence is that it appears in nature itself. Look at this video of an artichoke.

I wouldn’t care to see a similar video portraying some Romanesco brocoli.

300 kg of felt and much patience

300 kg of felt and much patience

Wandering around Kvadrat’s website, a large textile manufacturer, I was pretty shocked by this layer cloud chair designed by Richard Hutten. 545 layers of felt shape the armchair, which have been cut our and placed manually. Richard Hutten’s website is under being updated. I had to follow his advice and surf Google in order to see the rest of his work. The following project caught my attention:
Picture 1, picture 2, picture 3
These three objects are from the series Playing with Traditions. The designer has used the aesthetic effect created by stretched pixels and has adapted it to classical non-digital motifs.

Tania’s thingifications

Tania’s thingifications

A few days ago, while walking around an arts market organized by the Ar+9 cultural centre  in Cordova, we found out Tania Rodríguez‘s very odd work. It is both appealing and troubling. I love thi mouth-mugs that make you kiss to drink, her crazy balls and her surrealistic singing creatures.
Her atelier is Padul (Granada). Go surf her website, tumblr blog or facebook page, and you will find out a peculiar world, where the human body becomes an object and one does not know whether a mouth is there to bite or tell a story.

Groovy wall fungi

Groovy wall fungi

At my parents’, we decorate the living room walls for Christmas. This time we chose mushrooms as a theme and we found an amusing solution by cutting out and folding paper.

If you want to try this funny wall decoration, below are the steps to follow:
-1 Download the template to use as a basis.
-2 Print different sizes to test it.
-3 Cut the template borders. You can imitate naturally irregular edges that appear on the caps.

-4 y 5 Fold the tabs downwards.
-6 Stick the clear tab over the stripped one.
Your fungi are ready to be stuck on the wall. For a graceful result, we recommend many mushrooms in a variety of sizes. How to place them? Watching nature! Pay attention to how real ones grow, in groups and one on top of the other.
