Inside design 2012

Histor/Sandra Turina/Artemis/Otura

Yesterday I ignored the rain and cold (autumn has come to the Netherlands) and visited Inside Design. It was nice to see some colorful, creative projects.

My personal favorites:

NOVEL HOSPITAL TOYS
Hikaru Imamura

"‘Novel Hospital Toys’ is a toy set consisting of toy models of machines, such as CT, X-ray, ECHO(echocardiograph), ECG (electrocardiograph), as well as picture books of explaining machines. Every toy is made so as to give light or sounds so that children can easily imagine how these ‘strange’ machines work while they are playing with them in the waiting room. Their understanding will greatly help the hospital staff in performing medical examinations smoothly in children."

KASKAST
Marije van der Park & Klavertje Vijf

"Pronkkast voor eetbare planten die je kweekt in huis
Een ode aan eetbare planten, in verschillende stadia van zaad tot ontkiemde, volgroeide en oogstbare planten. De KasKast is ontstaan vanuit een bestaande oude servieskast in combinatie met de Fibonachi-reeks. Geheel gemaakt van afval-staal uit de industrie, oud tuinkas glas en gebruikt eikenhout. In de KasKast gebruikte roodstenen potten, de planten zijn bij elkaar gezocht uit Eindhoven en omgeving van mensen die zelf planten kweken in hun eigen huis, tuin of volkstuin. Zwammen van Casa Foresta."

CMYK LAMP
Dennis Parren

"Colorful mysteries of light
You can’t really say “that chair is red”. Actually, the chair is reflecting red light while absorbing green and blue light. It is light that colors the world. My CMYK lamp plays with the mystery of light and color casting an elusive network of lines of cyan, magenta and yellow light on the ceiling."
