Mexican product and furniture designer Liliana Ovalle based in London designs objects where the functional and the aesthetic components are accompanied by a reflection of contemporary life aspects. I love these sofas and armchairs from the Mugroso Series inspired by the urban scenarios in Mexico City, where people find the way of putting bits and pieces together in order to compose functional everyday objects. The objects grow in what appear random and sometimes absurd compositions, following no planning or safety concerns. So cool!! Via Arcademi.
Jay Shinn. Three-dimensional geometric structures comprised of light projections, faux and real shadows, ambiguous forms of neon tubes, Plexiglas, and paint trick the eye’s perception of shape and dimension, often displacing a sense of ground and gravity. I still don't quite get it, but take a look at photo 3, where you see an example of the painting with and without light projection and see for yourself! Via The Jealous Curator.Pin It

For the creation of these works New York based artist Tamara Kostianovsky cannibalized her own clothes, using fabrics and textures to conjure flesh, bone gristle and slabs of fat in life-size sculptures of livestock carcasses. Very cool and fascinating – and a tiny bit repulsive... Via Basic Sounds.

Characteristic of Danish artist Maiken Bent's work is its combination of retinal abstraction and tactile 'toolishness'. Ancient hunters decorated their knifes, bows and harpoons. The ornaments on such weapons did not depict things, they were part of the things. Put in another way, these ornaments did not install a distance between humans and object. This is rather the case in Bent's use of abstraction. Though the abstraction, which accompanies her objects, might recall primitive or archaic culture her style is closer to modernist abstraction than ornamental decoration. Via Arcademi.

Throughout her work Amsterdam-based artist Lotte Geeven reveals splintered structures, reducing them to lines. Her city is a subway map and her mountain is a stripped vista. Working in multiple dimensions, she reveals a private and whimsical world hidden around the city, creating a non-existent space so that we can partake in her imaginative journeys – here from the series Hotel Insomnia and Room 04.
