Good read about tendencies in the society. Trendwatching’s interpretation what’s going to happen during 2010. Trend number 6 is called ”Eco-Easy” and means that if the world should manage to reach some meaningful sustainability goals this year, corporations and governments will have to forcefully make it ‘easy’ for consumers to be more green, by restricting the alternatives. I recommend to read through the article, some good insights there.
The water-shaped bottle by Xiaoli Wen. He has created a series of porcelain bottles shaped by a waterfall. He made silicone rubber moulds of discarded plastic and glass bottles, the moulds were filled with plaster and cured while hanging under flowing water. A small number of bottles were selected which people casually discarded into rivers – bottles of mineral water, Coca-Cola, beer, whisky and gin
Here are words from the designer: ”Water does not have its own shape. It is shaped by its container. Now water wants to change the container’s shape therefore to decide its shape by itself. It is a philosophical thinking about active or passive, change or be changed.” Via Dezeen and MarteLouise.
Dzmitry Samal has made the faceted tin concept on the first picture. And with this concept I would like to bring you into what I think is a fabulous document. This Facet Design Book is a fantastic source of inspiration. Scroll through it and you will probably end up having a bunch of ideas. Beautiful! On the same theme Vitamin Water – new label, with the facet design incorporated in the graphic design. Designed by The Coolhunter. The salt and pepper dispenser, designed by Gregory Buntain. And last Fract Engineered Flowers, by Nimrod Gavish.
