This Week MoCo contributors share their design favorites of 2009. First up, designer Donald Corey from Raleigh, North Carolina,
This just caught my eye the first time I saw the picture of its shell; I had to know what it looked like underneath... and I was not disappointed. Being super clean and precise in its execution really makes this a beautiful fixture. Bucky would be proud.
I love it when someone takes time to make the most utilitarian of objects beautiful and interesting. This simple yet profound design really makes this a destination for more than learning about the animals.
Again another often overlooked area of life :) that could use a little design related sympathy is the death industry. This monument by Ivanka can best be described as eloquent and peaceful. It is a wonderful direction for marking someone's passing.
RFID Radio by Matt Brown
I love it when someone creates what could become a guerrilla/parasitic product group. This almost decorative paper model contains a brilliant surprise - it commandeers the radio station. Wonderful, playful, and customizable
- what more could you ask for?
Water is going to become a bigger and bigger issue in the years to come. This product really hits home the idea of reducing consumption. It is a little twisted,
but sometimes that's what it takes.
