a little spire

jorge sanchez lara from guadalajara, mexico, says it all:
great book showing great dutch design. There is hope for design when you see this fellows working. If you already know their work then you won't doubt it to have it if you know a bit of them then trust me is something that will provocate you a big smile.

I picked up Droog Design: Less + More from the library and have found a few images and ideas that really make me smile.

I thought this one was just amazing, something to strive towards, I love how it takes into consideration the humanitarian aspect of design and how well it considers the real needs of a building, rather than adding something unnecessary.

I am still chuckling about this one, I wonder how I would have reacted to this.

This one I like just because of the photograph, the project was using gourds as household items, containers, bottles, etc., but what I like was how the wrapping paper, photographed with the wrinkle creates a sort of optical illusion where the fold occurs, and as you look at the upper gourds and then the gourds existing on the fold the third dimension is completely destroyed....get it?
