Sling Shots and Cityscape Hangers at VITRA Design Museum

The Sling Shots and a full set of Cityscape Hangers have been selected for the upcoming exhibition:

Hidden Heroes: The Genius of Everyday Things
Aug 20 - Sep 19 2010

Vitra Design Museum
Buckminster Fuller Dome
Charles-Eames-Str. 1
D -79576 Weil am Rhein

This exhibition is devoted to the “heroes” of everyday life – things that we use on a daily basis, but to which we pay little attention. We know almost nothing about their history, although they influence our lives and have set many standards. We present these everyday heroes together with patent drawings by their inventors, with historical and contemporary advertisements and films, and also with design and art objects that have been inspired by them.

Elefant Stool & Table published in new TASCHEN book

On my return from working in Portugal i was greeted with the wonderful suprise of a book featuring my work! The new release from TASCHEN - Product Design in the Sustainable Era features a double page spread on the Elefant stool and Table.

The book as a whole is a forward thinking and refreshing look at modern sustainable design and from recent reviews i have seen has been well recieved by the design world and critics alike.

The Building Blocks are also featured in the recently published - Doing It For The Kids: The Sustainable Toy Story. A great book put together by [re]design full of imagination and most importantly, fun!
