1:1 Model Kits

February 24, 2010 Leave a comment

Michael Johansson’s sculptures ‘some assembly required’ and ‘toys ‘r’ us’ see the swedish artist turn real forms of transport into 1:1 model kits. Pieces from each vehicle are fastened together by a welded tubular frame and painted a uniform color.

Toys ‘r’ us – Dinghy (scale 1:1, 2006)
‘A boat and related equipment are joined together in a welded metal frame. Everything is painted in a unifying plastic layer to resemble the surface of a model kit. The real boat is transformed into a model of itself, and its original purpose has given way to something else.’

Some Assembly Required – Crescent (scale 1:1, 2007)
‘As a child I was fascinated building models. I remember breaking off the pieces from the surrounding plastic sticks that were leftover from the casting process and subsequently gluing the pieces back together in the right order by following the instruction manual. A real bike is turned back into a space of imagination. By this I wanted to address the similarities between different contexts and spin concepts such as size and belonging.’


Realistic Fruit Juice Packaging

Amazing packaging design for these Japanese juice cartons. They feature Banana, Strawberry and Kiwi flavours, the flavour being unmistakably represented on the exterior of the packs. So simple and effective is the packaging there is no mistaking what is contained inside. If these were on a shop shelf there would be no way of hiding them from your attention.

They look good enough to eat!!

'down low' by upwell design 1

Built with those gaming sessions in mind, Upwell Design has come up with the ‘Down Low’ seating.

‘ The DL is flexible living room seating created to engage low, or typical seating height scenarios.’

Great idea for two level seating, the ‘down low’ main seat and the smaller and higher back seat. Great for those lazy days!!
