Story of things
I was just looking through some designers websites and I found a website of a design group called Front. They are 4 girls from Sweden and they are doing amazing things. Very inspiring and clever. One of the projects they are running now, is about our homes and the objects that define the space we live in. They are doing very interesting research, collecting stories of the objects by writing them on the plastic moulds of those objects. It reminded me of the project that guys in Dundee are doing now about cultural probes. Are those not interesting examples?
For me those red plastic moulds are even more interesting than the originals. They tell the story about their owner and themselves, a bit like they were revealing some secret...
