Design Watch: Vial’s Fida Folding Mat

Appealing design and intelligent function come together in Vial’s Fida Folding Mat.  The next time you need to sit on the ground, plan ahead and get yourself this mat. Turn heads at the park, and make people jealous of your good taste and better design sense. It’s reversible, sturdy, has a pocket to store your reading materials, packs up easily and my favorite part is that it folds into a backrest. If you have a birthday gift coming up, this would be an awesome thing to get.

Dan Gluibizzi’s Voyeuristic Watercolors

Dan Gluibizzi’s work combines voyeurism with soft wash watercolor, creating pieces that feel like you’re looking in on strangers lives from a distance. He uses images from the internet, sometimes amateur porn photos but recreates his pieces in a completely refreshing manner. Viewing his work is nothing like viewing the photos they came from, he adds a sense of curiosity and innocence in his figures that comes through beautifully in his medium.

RANDALL ROSENTHAL’s Solid Wood

Nope this isn’t all the subscription money i’ve been stuffing in my mattress for the last ten years. Rather it’s a trompe l’oeil sculpture by Randall Rosenthal. Each sculpture is hand carved from a single block of wood and then painstakingly painted for months. See more of Randall’s amazingly realistic wood sculptures after the jump.

John Powers’ Polystyrene Orb

The impenetrable geometries of John Powers’ abstract sculptures call to mind a wide range of influences, borrowing equally from art movements like postminimalism and pop culture icons like Star Wars. Meticulously constructed by hand, Power’s forms are constructed out of a limited formal vocabulary: Polystyrene blocks cut to a selection of preset sizes, attached to each other at 90 degree angles. The resulting structure gives the appearance of being a computer-aided design but is in reality the outcome of a human-executed algorithm, dictated by the artist’s intuition expressed through the repetitive action of connecting blocks.

This text is taken from the NODE10 catalogue, written by Eno Henze and Marius Watz and edited by Valérie-Françoise Vogt.
