I have Pop: “Street Furniture”

Guerilla-Upcycling-Projekt des niederländischen Designstudios “I have Pop“: “This is a series of unique pieces of furniture as art created from materials found and appropriated around the city of Amsterdam. On the spot where the materials were found these seemingly worthless road signs, fences and planters were freestyle (yes, without any plans) sawn, drilled, cut, screwed and put together as quickly as possible, turning them into extremely valuable pieces. Eventually they were left for lucky collectors to find.” Via Mail & Urbanshit

Und sonst so? : 23. 04. 2012

Lush aka Graffiti Asshole ist soooo böse. Siehe auch: “What if that guy Michael J. Fox did graffiti“…

* Umfrage zur sozio-ökonomischen Situation von Designern: “Wir haben gerade eine Online-Umfrage zur sozio-ökonomischen Situation von Designern aller Art gestartet. Wir haben vor, tausende von Antworten zu sammeln, um uns ein möglichst objektives Bild der Situation zu machen. Falls wir genügend Daten sammeln sollten, wäre es toll z.B. eine Publikation mit Info-Grafiken, Aktionen bei Designmessen, oder Vorträge bei Designhochschulen zu machen. Den Fragebogen auszufüllen dauert zirka 15 Minuten und die ganze Sache läuft bis zum 20. Mai 2012.” Via: Mail

Mark Reigelman: “Manifest Destiny”

“Manifest Destiny! is about our God-given imperative as modern explorers, to seek out parcels of unclaimed territory and boldly establish a new home front in the remaining urban voids of San Francisco. Manifest Destiny! is a temporary rustic cabin occupying one of the last remaining unclaimed spaces of downtown San Francisco – above and between other properties. The cabin is affixed to the side of the Hotel des Arts, floating above the restaurant Le Central like an anomalous outgrowth of the contemporary streetscape. Using a 19th-century architectural style and vintage building materials, the structure is both homage to the romantic spirit of the Western Myth and a commentary on the arrogance of Westward expansion. The interior space of the tiny house can be seen day and night through the curtained windows, a lonely beacon in the city’s dense landscape, and an incongruous, haunting vision from below. The installation will remain in place and be slowly transformed by the elements through October 2012.”

Fabrique | Hacktion: Pimp your city!

Bei mehreren Ausgängen aus der U-Bahn wird die Entfernung in Minuten hinzugefügt

Eine Plastikhaube, die das rote bzw. grüne Lichtchen (defekt bzw. funktionstüchtiger Automat) sichtbarer macht

Fantastisches Projekt: Drei Studenten aus dem Bereich Produktdesign, Raphaël Pluvinage, Sylvain Chassériaux und Léa Bardin, haben das Projekt Fabrique | Hacktion ins Leben gerufen – und führen nun (ungefragte) Interventionen durch, um den Alltag zu erleichtern: Dazu gestalten und entwerfen sie minimale Produktverbesserungen/innovationen: “Fabrique / Hacktion intervient dans les espaces publics et collectifs en installant des greffes, compléments d’objets, qui favorisent un usage, augmentent ou questionnent les dispositifs existants. Le design de ces greffes tire parti des technologies de fabrication du Fab-Lab (Ensci), dites de prototypages rapides, ou de machines de production plus traditionnelles. Ces processus de fabrication permettent de réaliser des pièces sur mesure, lesquelles peuvent s’adapter et s’ajuster très précisément aux standards urbains. Cette production réactive, vise des contextes particuliers en associant et en comparant les productions des Fab-Labs à celles des industries classiques qui aménagent les villes, les écoles, les réseaux de transports, etc”.

Miguel Melgarejo: “The most effective bulletproof vest”

Der mexikanische Designer Miguel Melgarejo hat die wohl sicherste Schutzweste der Welt entworfen: “A couple of years ago I heard that it was relatively common for Mexican inmates to tattoo an image of the Guadalupe Virgin (and another saints and figures) in places where they didn’t wanted to get hit, evidently, in a deeply religious country as Mexico, god, saints and virgin’s images inspire respect, no one wants to get in trouble with the holy, or at least to open that possibility. Mexico is nowadays suffering from a tremendous amount of violence the, such called, war against drug trafficking, has caused more than 10,000 casualties just in 2010 without discriminating between civilians, this war has pretty much taken away the sense of security from Mexican people. Much is said about the purpose and possible endings of this war, the truth is that no one can see the light at the end of the tunnel; bloodsheds, blockades, executions, bombings, persecutions and shootings are now seen as normal, and that is scary. Faith plays a very important role in moments like this, sometimes is the only thing left to have. In this hope is that I can say that, indeed, I have designed the most effective bulletproof vest in the world.”

Auch nicht schlecht: Das Pissoir “Axixa” – “a project in which a public ceramic urinal maintains the shape that a leak leaves in a wall in order to generate a permanent mark in public streets or places where people can urinate and participate in a manifestation in which the disposal itself becomes part of the public life.” Via: Mail, thx!

Cardon Copy Project



Schönes Design-Heinzelmännchen-Projekt: Cardon Copy hängt selbstgemachte Flyer, Plakate und Anzeigen ab, gestaltet sie neu und hängt sie dann wieder auf. “Cardon Copy, takes the vernacular of self-distributed fliers and tear-offs we have all seen in our neighborhoods. It involves hijacking these unconsidered fliers and redesigning them, over powering their message with a new visual language. I then replace the original with the redesign in its authentic environment.” Via
