John and Wonhee Jeong Arndt of Studio Gorm met whereas learning within the masters program on the design academy Eindhoven within the Netherlands. They arrange their first studio in Rotterdam, although at this time, they’re situated in Eugene, Oregon. Let’s see what evokes the pair who make easy, sensible, and all the time lovely merchandise and environments, on this week’s Friday 5.
1. RadiolabThere is all the time one thing superb to study stuff that’s so elementary… that you simply don’t hassle to consider it. We’re all the time eagerly anticipating new episodes—there may be weeks or months in between. Thats OK, as a result of good issues take time.
2. Italian Flower Pots The usual Italian conical flowerpot is such an ubiquitous object that it’s typically taken without any consideration. We began utilizing them to prototype meals storage containers and located they work nice, simply as they’re. They’re good for storing non-fridge fruit and veggies.
three.The US Postal Service We love our native submit workplace. They will work out find out how to ship just about something we usher in, and it’s a lot cheaper than the opposite providers. Plus,we just like the design of postal objects, that are utilitarian and type of awkward in a pleasant sort of method. The postal truck has an awesome form. with sensible easy development particulars. The rolling hand carts are additionally nice in the identical sensible and unpretentious approach.
four. The Japanese tea room We have now been learning the Japanese tea ceremony for a while. It’s massively inspiring to us as designers for too many causes than we will identify right here. One concept that has caught with us is the thought of avoidance of redundancy. When composing the utensils for a tea ceremony, the host takes nice pains to pick every object rigorously to be able to mirror a specific theme or season. They attempt to not repeat motifs or patterns or kinds of objects, so that every object stands by itself, and so there isn’t any additional stuff within the room to distract you from the second. No matching units like in a typical Western tea set. This appeared like such an uncommon and liberating strategy to how we take into consideration object relationships.
5. Korean Homi A stunning conventional Korean gardening software, half shovel half spade, half knife. It’s such an uncommon undesigned object that would solely have advanced by way of use over generations. It’s Wonhee’s software of selection within the backyard.
