Well Proven Chair - surface and surface

Beautifully ugly solid foam chairs and stools made by a chemical reaction to the mix of hardwood shavings, bio-resin, dye and water. The well proven chair project is in collaboration between the American Hardwood Export Council, Marjan Van Aubel and James Shaw. The Well Proven chair is on show at the Design Museum in London as part of The Design of the Year 2015.

make shape change - johnny kelly - surface and surfaceA new project commissioned by PIVOT Dublin called ‘Make Shape Change’ which was put together to ‘promote wider acceptance and use of design as a tool for positive change’. At the crux of this project is the best animation I’ve seen since ‘Back to the Start’ Although also directed and designed by Johnny Kelly this one is written by Scott Burnett and produced by Ali Grehan. The simple forms follow through on the web site which is an outlet for young people to find out more about design in everyday life. This looks like it’s the start of something really great.

Offset_surface and surfaceAnother year over and another Offset, 5th one this year. So many amazing projects and ideas from very talented people. I’ve put together a few images from some of the stand out speakers for me. If you’ve never been to Offset before and like the stuff on this site you should give it a go next year if you get a chance.
