Drawings in Space

German artist Janusz Grünspek has created scale replicas of everyday objects with little more than thin wooden dowels and a bit of glue. A MacBook, a candle chandelier and even whole sets of furniture are formed from delicately cut and bent wooden pieces. The series is called Zeichnungen im Raum (Drawings in Space) and that's actually describing them pretty well.

Dancer bends light

Inside a cube fashioned from translucent veils, a dancer takes a visual journey into a 3D space between dreams and reality. 

Hakanaï is a digital solo performance from Adrien M / Claire B that made its debut at BAM’s Fishman Theatre on March 17, 2015. The choreographed performance installation combines video projection mapping, CGI, and sensors to dynamically respond to the movements and proximity of its performer. Its visuals and sounds are generated and animated live, offering a uniquely different performance for each and every iteration.

The Sydney Opera House as a living mural

Universal Everything creates a living mural out of the Sydney Opera House.

I've been intrigued by the work of Matt Pyke since his early days at The Designers Republic through to his current work at Universal Everything.

His work for Universal Everything extends outside of standard design application with a multi-disciplinary style applied through various technologies. It’s been interesting to see how his curious and playful style adapts to a range of forms and spaces.

This year he has been commissioned to create animations which will be projected onto the Opera House as part of the Vivid Festival. The animations will include collaborations from 22 different animation artists from around the world.

It’ll be great to see Universal Everything’s unique approach and what visuals he’s dreamt up, turning the iconic landmark into a living mural.

The Unexpected When It Rains

When it rains, we all get a little dreary - it’s grey, wet, cold and just makes things just that tad little harder. However, Peregrine Church’s street art makes these gloomy days that tad brighter.

 

With messages and images hidden when dry Church’s street art, ‘Rainworks’ brightens one’s day unexpectedly on the sidewalks of Seattle. His 20 or so 'Rainwork's ranges from messages on/from the weather, to quirky little antidotes and pieces of art such as lilypads with jumping frogs and hopscotch squares.

 

Rainworks, uses a superhydrophobic coating that’s biodegradable, environmentally friendly and non toxic that is sprayed onto a concrete surface using a stencil. Invisible when applied, these comes out of the woodworks when droplets of rain start to fall due to the contrast between the applied and non-applied concrete.

I guess it’s going to rain no matter what, so why not make something out of it! (Wouldn’t mind some of these popping around in Sydney on a wet day like today!)

Positive Negatives

Exploring 12 great examples of the art of negative space in design Read more.

Positive Negatives

Negative space is defined as 'the space that surrounds an object' in a image. In design, negative space helps to define the boundaries of positive space and brings balance to a composition. Here are 12 impressive examples

More and more these days, the creative world is seeing an emergence of artists creating positive spaces and shapes that, in turn, cleverly carve out shapes in negative space intentionally. And the results can be stunning. Here, we've found some brilliant examples - enjoy!

Harvey Esparcia – This simple yet striking logo design is the personal logo study from Filipino designer Harvey Esparcia who uses negative space to combine his initial letters.

 

Designer Tang Yau Hoong uses a simple and straight-forward illustration style to get the most out of the negative space. Using just the two shades allows the clever negative space trick to jump out.

 A graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design, Noma Bar is an award-winning graphic designer, famous for his 'negative space style'. Using a limited colour palette, Bar carefully crafts and places positive space to give the negative space another meaning.

Using the bare minimum to communicate his message, Bar's distinctive work has gained him international recognition and work with leading companies including Vodafone, Coca Cola and the BBC.

This example uses negative space trickery to depict Batman VS Penguin

It's Batman VS Penguin in this poster. Part of a Criminal Underworld series, it cleverly depicts both characters using negative space trickery.

The bald head and long pointy nose are instantly identifiable as Danny Devito's Penguin, which in turn, carves out the strong, bold silhouette of Michael Keaton as Batman. Very clever.

 

 

Leo Burnett in Brazil have come up trumps once again with this clever new campaign for car manufacturer Fiat, which encourages drivers not to send text messages while drving.

A great example is The Guild of Food Writers' logo, the replacement of the pen's nib with a spoon shape creates a simple, clever and impactful logo.

Workplace Environments Transforming

Gone are the days that the workplace is merely a drib and drab of the same old furniture, finishes and style as you move from one company to the next. Customising, individualising and bespoke is becoming the new trend with companies investing in how a workplace looks and feels for their employees as a means of employee engagement.

From small companies to big companies, it’s happening everywhere. With architectural features, forms, materiality and visual language within a fit-out becoming an extension of a company’s business, brand identity and values.

King, the company behind popular Candy Crush Saga is one great example. Customised perforated partitions, textile screens of landscape features such as trees, waves, selected furniture and vinyl graphics on walls of characters make out the themed zones and meetings rooms within this workplace environment. From Magic Forest, Treasure Island & Deep Sea to name a few, all which make reference to the companies catalogue of 200 games through an energy of colour, fun and magic. This is a space that in essence is King - what they create and what they believe in. Ultimately a King - dom! 

The modern workplace environment is an opportunity for companies to re-inforce their identity and also differentiate themselves from their competitors. One sector, for example who are really pushing the envelope are banks. Financial institutions who were once across a number of floors with standard uniformed workstations have moved to active based working (ABW) environments with collaboration spaces, private pods and communal work spaces. NAB Docklands has not only tailored its interiors with a design language of crystalline fragments as an abstract play on the banks logo - but also how the company functions. Creating opportunities to share ideas and connect within the confinements of its walls

These new forms and spatial differentiation within the workplace are exciting for THERE's design team, affording opportunities to collaborate with architectural and interior studios to help shape and nurture the way in which companies and their employees work. Creating transformable spaces and implementing strategies to create more engaging experiences at ones 9 - 5 job!
