Light Container

Light Container (2014) by Martín Azúa Light Container (2015) by Martín Azúa Light Container (2016) by Martín Azúa Light Container (2013) by Martín Azúa

Suspended inside a floating metallic basket, the ‘light container’ by spanish designer Martin Azua treats rays of illumination as something with weight and volume. dipping accordingly to the side, the immaterial nature of light is captured within the sculptural frame. constructed in a series of three different sizes, the shades can be hung individually or in groups. the inner glass diffuser generates a warm, dim light that produces soft shadows – suitable for a range of different spaces.

Toy Story

The series exposes the viewer to row after row of anonymous faces, but it's effective enough just to see that there are actual people behind the knickknacks rather than a succession of robotic machines.Interspersed within the wide shots of the factory are intimate portraits of laborers, giving even more of a human feel to the series. Though Wolf's project is, at times, depressing, especially when you think about all the hard work these people put into their livelihood everyday without much acknowledgement, it is also eye-opening and insightful. It is through the photographer's journalistic eye and his decision to share their faces and work environment that they are finally given some much deserved recognition.michaelwolftherealtoystory16 michaelwolftherealtoystory15 michaelwolftherealtoystory13 michaelwolftherealtoystory8 michaelwolftherealtoystory4 michaelwolftherealtoystory5 michaelwolftherealtoystory6

We are going shopping

American-born Frankfurt-based artist Mike Bouchet takes the common shopping cart and reapproriates it, transforming it into an object of leisure and design. Bouchet alters the frames of zinc plated steel carts, cutting off the sides of the buggies and modifying their front and back panels by bending them backwards or forwards to achieve certain angles to create lawn chairs / sun loungers. The carts' childseats are remounted to serve as headrests, allowing one to readjust it to a comfortable height. there is a slight spring to the design, reinforced at major stress points in order to retain structural integrity over time and use. The result is a set of five seating objects, each outfitted with an outdoor, weatherproof, polyester foam cushion exhibiting different patterns. (via designboom)

We are missing a piece

In the 1970s, art afficinados and Best founders, Sydney and Frances Lewis, contracted with architect James Wines and his firm, “Sculpture in the Environment” (SITE), to design several unorthodox, irreverent, imaginative and ironic retail showrooms. The basic, utilitarian, windowless box that was Best was having its façade manipulated, deconstructed, extruded, displaced and generally distorted.
