This is not photoshop. This is an actual, supposedly functional piece of furniture, made especially to look like a distorted photograph. I couldn’t resist featuring this; it is of course a lovely, surreal piece of design, but to me it also captures the mutual exchange that happens between product design and new technologies. Before Photoshop and similar software, what designer would have envisioned something like this? Technology has and will change the way we look at things… and pieces like this leave us the possibility of a future that we truly can’t imagine right now. To me, that is an oddly hopeful thought…
Designer Pietro Ferruccio Laviani designed this “Good Vibrations” cabinet for Fratelli Boffi in 2013; I have no idea about the price but I have the feeling it’s at least as impressive as the woodwork! Find this, and many more intriguing design, on: http://www.laviani.com/
My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93.
Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know...
I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling...
I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever.
And I make lists of things...
