Unpacking

May 20th, 2010

Itay Ohaly question the function of packaging (to protect a product in transit) and came up with the Unpacking concept. He uses the packaging of the product to manufacture the product itself. The packaging of this stool is also the mold of the object. It defines and influences its form and surface. In this case the manufacturer doesn’t open the mold anymore but the consumer. As you can see in the pictures, it’s practically impossible to remove the PU foam completely. Itay also developed some vases with this unique packaging & production process. Very cool!

MUJI & LEGO

November 20th, 2009

The Japanese retail brand MUJI and LEGO teamed up to develop a set of 4 different boxes. Inside those boxes you’ll find the classic LEGO bricks but also a few sheets of paper. No big deal. But when you also have the right punch hole tool, you can combine both to create something new. I really like this concept. You can order a set here (when you speak sone Japanese).

Amateur Music Production

August 19th, 2009

The Amateur Music Production project by Yuri Suzuki was an one afternoon event during the exhibtion “Coalition of Amateurs” at the Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg. Yuri recorded music with 3 punk bands from Luxembourg (Tvesla, Takemeunderground (myspace.com/takemeundergroundband) and Yegussa) and pressed vinyls all during that one afternoon. I really like this DIY style. Unfortunately there is no audio sample available of a record playing.

Growth Modeling Device

August 11th, 2009

Growth Modeling Device is a kinetic installation by David Bowen. The machine uses lasers to scan a plant, in this case an onion, from 3 different angles. That data is then used in real-time by a fuse deposition modeler, to create a plastic model of the current state of the plant. This process takes place every 24 hours, but each time the plant is scanned from a different angle. In the end you have several models illustrating the growth of the plant. You can see a video of this installation here.
This is actually a little similar to an older project of David: Growth Rendering Device.
