Nidal Sher collages combine reality and fantasy

Nidal Sher collages combine reality and fantasy

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

Nidal Sher lives in Pakistan, in the region of Balochistan, where the internet connection is active a couple of hours a day. For us, it would be impossible to work, something inconceivable, but for Nidal those two hours are enough to give vent to all his imagination and to create digital collages that combine the love for his country, fantastic scenarios, and current subjects.

So we see the Mona Lisa holding a machine gun, women covered in designer burqas and images of denunciation of consumerism and war.

The fact that these works come from the imagination of a young man from an economically disadvantaged and technologically backward region invests them with even greater value. Think if Nidal had a 24-hour connection what he could create.

Milad Eshtiyaghi and the building that looks like a greenhouse

Milad Eshtiyaghi and the building that looks like a greenhouse

Giulia Guido · 12 months ago · Design

In the distance, the residential building designed by Milad Eshtiyaghi in Cyprus may look like a normal condominium, but as you approach the door you will be surprised to discover that the entire facade is made up of a grid window. This use of the facade, in addition to making the residence more secure, gives more light to the interior, thus giving the opportunity to choose furniture and furnishings in dark tones, without having that sense of closure of the spaces.

The project is obviously distinguished by the facade, but also by the central terrace with swimming pool and a semi-open loggia area accessible to all condominiums. Thanks to the abundant use of plants in the apartments and common areas, Milad Eshtiyaghi’s project becomes a real oasis in the city center.

Mad Dog Jones’s illustrations with a cyberpunk style

Mad Dog Jones’s illustrations with a cyberpunk style

Claudia Fuggetti · 12 months ago · Design

Mad Dog Jones, this is the Instagram profile name of this incredible artist from Toronto who makes illustrations in a perfect cyberpunk style. The city is one of the backgrounds and recurring subjects in his works, a city very similar to that proposed in the two films by Blade Runner. The holographic projections of female subjects, more cyborgs than real women, are very reminiscent of a famous scene from the recent film chapter Blade Runner 2049 directed by Denis Villeneuve, in 2017.

Le illustrazioni di Mad Dog Jones ti portano nel futuro | Collater.al

The tram, sports cars, purple color, and fuchsia transport us into a reality that is not so far from ours, made of neon dreams. This artist makes us think of Beeple Crap, of which we had previously spoken here, with a different poetics which makes feel someone who looks at his work halfway between cyber and human worlds.

Dagsturhytter, the Norwegian refuge built like a puzzle

Dagsturhytter, the Norwegian refuge built like a puzzle

Giulia Guido · 12 months ago · Design

The project of the Dagsturhytte was born from the collaboration of several entities: the Norwegian association of trekking, the studio SPINN arkitekter and the engineers of FORMAT, and from the desire to stimulate tourism in the Norwegian area of Hammerfest, the northernmost city in the world.

The project involved the construction of two cabins, two shelters that, in addition to being designed and totally in harmony with the surrounding unspoiled landscape, was the perfect place to rest after a long walk. The aesthetics of the mountain huts are inspired by the shapes and beauty of nature and fit perfectly into the ground as if they were giant stones. The shape and materials used are designed to confuse the structure in the landscape and produce the least visual pollution possible. 

From an architectural point of view, the two shelters are a real gem. The project was carried out by SPINN arkitekter, the parts of the structure were then produced by FORMAT engineers and finally, the 77 wooden panels were assembled as if they were real pieces of a puzzle. Sitting inside you can enjoy a warm and comfortable place to have your own packed lunch, rest and converse and admire the landscape visible from the large window overlooking the fjords. 

Discover the beauty of the Dagsturhytter in our gallery and in the video.
