When it comes to tackling tasks and chores we usually award ourselves after the job is completed. However Martino Hamper rewards the procrastinators and the seat is only functional when your laundry duties have been neglected. The chair has been featured on dozens of notable blogs and publications. SEE MORE


SEARCHING FOR WORDS
#generative design
 

"Searching For Words," aims to convert words into images as a way to create new meanings behind them. Taking inspiration from the Deconstruction:Reconstruction process taught and created by Ayse Brisel. The project reflects on a hero of many, the late designer Tobias Wong. The images are gathered by a program built in Processing and it uses Google's search API to source images. SEE MORE


DISTRACTINGS
#object design
 

A set of ordinary products turned into "boobie traps" with the intentions of creating a moment of embarrassment and/or confusion. The hope is that these moments can give the unexpected user a brief instance of humility.

THE SPECTACLE
#thesis project

The Spectacle, is an investigation into Guy Debord’s theory of the same name and how it relates to today. The spectacle is a communication tool that employs fantasy in order to sell society on the idea of how we should live our lives, and what we should aspire to be. It manifests in many forms—social media, movies, television, store displays, political campaigns, sports, and entertainment. The spectacle urges us to watch and consume life instead of actively constructing our own—losing our grasp of our own desires and replacing them with others. This thesis takes the form of an intervention, aiming to wake people up, expose them to alternative and freethinking, get them in touch with their own desires, and express their true selves.
