DMY Berlin Youngsters 2009 – Mushrooms Ate My Furniture

June 4th, 2009

“Mushrooms Ate My Furniture” is piece of garden furniture designed by Shinwei Rhoda Yen. The outer side of the stool is made of the hard-wood larch, the bark on the inner side is birch or pine embedded with mushrooms’ spawn. After some time the mushrooms will grow and degrade the wood. Eventually the stool will fall apart, the mushrooms ate it.

BLUR Collection by Big-Game

May 12th, 2009

The “BLUR Collection” by Big-Game is one of the better design projects I’ve seen lately. The vases are so high that the flowers disappear almost completely into them, only their colored shadow appear through the frosted glass. The tables and mirrors are silkscreened with a gradient. Your reflection disappears towards to bottom of the mirror. The tables look like they are up in the clouds. Nice work!

Crushed Cayenne

March 23rd, 2009

Crushed Cayenne by Folke Köbberling und Martin Kaltwasser.

The work “Crushed Cayenne” is a cynical answer to the hedonistic consum and lifestyle in the 21th century. Build out of found material “Crushed Cayenne” is a one to one model of a crushed SUV (sport utility vehicle).
These cars become more and more popular in the last years, and almost each car producer has developed it’s own SUV , although they use a lot more petrol and space and produces more co2 output than “normal” cars.
