Flashkus

February 17th, 2011

I guess it won’t take long anymore till USB sticks will become disposable, maybe they even are already. The Russian design studio Art. Lebedev already designed one: Flashkus. It’s made of cardboard so can write directly on it. I like them.

Nike Cardboard Packaging

August 20th, 2009

Zack Klauck and Emile Molin were asked by Nike to design packaging system that reflects their desire for lightness and sustainability during the Nike exhibition in Beijing last year. They decided to use a mesh wrap of recycled cardboard to make a packaging for a shirt and windbreaker together and one for a pair of shoes. I really like how they look and the fact that they wrote the sizes by hand. But I don’t really get why you would need a packaging for a shirt and windbreaker, except if there’re really limited gifts.

EVOL

May 5th, 2009

I really like EVOL‘s stencil, grafitti style! He has a whole sieres called “Plattenbauten”, of stenciled and strayed powerboxes.  He did the 2 other pieces on regular cardboard. You can see more of his work at Wilde-Gallery in Berlin till the end of the month. Or just check out his Flickr set.

Kotti

December 10th, 2008

Larissa Fassler made this cardboard model of the publicly accessible areas of the mega housing estate, the Zentrum Kreuzberg, in Berlin. She has built the negative volumes, the tunnels of the metro station and the space between the facades. The model measures 3m x 3m x 1.35m.
Kotti is the nickname of this area, the metro station is called Kottbusser Tor. You won’t find many tourists here.

Raf Simons Zip Change Sneakers

July 22nd, 2008

If you buy the Raf Simons Zip Change Sneakers, you’ll get 2 pairs of shoes. Well actually not, you’ll get one rubber sole and 2 uppers which you can zip together. The idea is funny, but the sneakers look like … fugly and they even cost £499.00.
