Marin Sawa’s Sculptural Algaeriums

October 1, 2010

Christopher Jobson

British architect and meteorologist Marin Sawa builds sculptures out of farmed algae and assorted chemistry equipment.

Algaerium is textile-inspired design for ‘cultivating’ and producing green energy in style. It creates a domesticated mode of algaculture for our urban lifestyles in the space of interior to exterior. This means it acts as aquariums for algae and the ‘living’ design serves as a new type of plants designed with a new characteristic to visualize photosynthesis through colour change.

Hot identity work for London salon Znips by mind design.

The Znips logo is inspired by locks of hair and hand-cut lettering we found in a 80s Punk fanzine. As part of the interior we designed an art piece made from chopped books curled into strands of hair resembling the curved shapes in the logo.

Eco-Reminder Electrical Switch & Socket Stickers

September 28, 2010

Christopher Jobson

It’s easy to take for granted the magic of electricity in your home, but these whimsical self-adhesive stickers are a clever reminder of what it really takes to light your room or power your vacuum. PVC-free and standardized for use in the UK, I’m sensing a US market opportunity here. For sale on Hu2.
