Tree of Life

Tree of Life
Das ‘Tree of Life’ Poster sieht von weitem wie ein Querschnitt eines Baumstammes aus. Bei genauerem Hinsehen erkennt man jedoch, dass es sich bei den schwarzen Kreisen nicht um Holzringe, sondern um hunderte verschiedene Silhouetten von Tieren handelt. Das Projekt soll auf die Abholzung des Regenwaldes und die damit verbundene Zerstörung des Lebensraumes der Tiere aufmerksam machen. Den Print könnt ihr hier für 45 Dollar kaufen. Via: Mail

Search #d9e8c3 #ced181 #7c8f50 Made from a Single Piece of Plywood, This Chair Redefines Simplicity Photo: Alex Davies At the Meet My Project design exposition in Paris this week, simplicity was a major theme: boiling down products to their basics to get the most out of the materials used to make them.

The group created the From One Sheet chair (even the name is simple and straightforward): an armchair made from a single sheet of plywood, cut, bent, and held together by a single steel rod.

carnovsky RGB Color est e pluribus unus RGB is a work about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness”. RGB designs create surfaces that mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus. Carnovsky's RGB is an ongoing project that experiments with the interaction between printed and light colours. The resulting images are unexpected and disorienting. Everyday Objects Remember artist Terry Border of Bent Objects fame, who explores the secret life of everyday objects in playful vignettes using simple bent wire? Border is back with Bent Object of My Affection: The Twists and Turns of Love -- a charming collection of new 60 bent-wire vignettes in which household objects explore the romantic and the risqué. Sweet and kooky, Border's images are also a light-hearted metaphor for love itself, wherein the ordinary becomes extraordinary.
