The Uncomfortable, Katerina Kamprani impossible objects

The Uncomfortable, Katerina Kamprani impossible objects

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Design

Try to imagine what your life would be like if all the objects that make it up, suddenly, change their shape.
If they become irretrievably and incredibly useless.
This experiment, named The Uncomfortable, was done by the Athens-based architect Katerina Kamprani and the result is much worse than you can expect.

The objects, all designed with the same materials of which they are made in reality, lose their function and become very complicated to use.
The reason why they were born, according to the designer’s own words, is only to annoy those who see them and those who would also like to try them out.
It should not be easy to eat with a chain fork, drink wine from a Siamese glass or go out on a rainy day with boots pierced on the toe.

Yet there are those who would like to try.

Tom Galle turns logos into weapons

Tom Galle turns logos into weapons

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Design

Whether we like it or not, there are some logos so ubiquitous in our everyday life that, with time, they have crept into our subconscious so as not to get out of it anymore.
In his latest series artist Tom Galle, known for his crazy inventions that exploit new technologies and our passions, has transformed some of the most recognizable logos ever into powerful weapons.

After the shoe laces that recharged the smartphones and the incredible Netflix and Chill Airbnb, Galle gave vent to his creativity by giving a new meaning, anything but harmless, to the logos of Facebook, McDonald’s and Nike.

Peter Judson reduces cities to colorful graphic elements

Peter Judson reduces cities to colorful graphic elements

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Design

The graphic designer and illustrator Peter Judson has created a project in which geometric shapes and colours replace the elements that we meet daily on our streets.
Leaves, paper, signs, street signs, shop windows, walls and even a bit of nature.

His aim is to create, through simplicity, a most creative and colorful window on our world.

In this series, as in most of his works, he follows a technique that involves the reduction of all the elements that make up his image in coloured geometric blocks that, although in a schematically way, tell the story of the world, erasing all its ugliness.

Domun Dei, abandoned churches by photographer James Kerwin

Domun Dei, abandoned churches by photographer James Kerwin

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Design

In recent decades, especially in Western countries, religious practice has radically diminished.
This, of course, has led to the abandonment of so many places of worship that year after year are closing their huge doors.

Photographer James Kerwin then began to travel aroun Europe in search of these places that, despite falling apart, keep that mystical and spiritual atmosphere that characterizes them.

Here are some of his shots, but if you want to see them all click here.

Josie, the chair that pops

Josie, the chair that pops

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Design

Do you remember those teenage movies where everything revolves around the prom?
Where the ugly girl, after years of teasing, was invited by the most handsome of the school and becomes the most hated and loved by all the other girls?

Probably yes, because like it or not, at least we’ve all seen one.

Never Been Kissed, for example?
The story of the 1999 cult movie, with a very young Drew Barrymore, is a bit ‘different but the division between’ popular ‘and ‘all other’ is always at the base of the plot and, years later, has also become the source of inspiration of a fun design object.

Josie, the chair that pops is a chair designed in beech wood, created by the Italian studio Mathery, for all those guys who spend their parties sat and lonely, bored, left there with no one around.
It’s a chair that a few seconds before sitting down, bursts into a thousand confetti bringing the party even where, at least emotionally, definitely isn’t.
