Since 1959, German artists Bernd and Hilla Becher devoted themselves to registering the remnants of the economic age in Western Europe and america by means of images. Within the twentieth century, many of those buildings have been pulled down as a result of that they had served their objective and have been not a tenable financial proposition. In lots of instances the images taken by the Bechers stay the one visible document of those ânameless´ buildings.
Impressed by the images of those industrial buildings, Dutch designer Mieke Meijer created the Industrial Archeology collection of furnishings. She has restored the disused industrial shapes and positioned them in a brand new context. By decreasing the size and enjoying with quantity, Mieke Meijer creates autonomous inside objects with an architectural really feel.
The third piece within the collection, âPowerPlant 01â, wasn´t based mostly on a Becher photograph however on a marquant Eindhoven constructing, heritage from the Philips firm. Mieke Meijer translated it right into a low desk with two conical formed lamps.
âCooling Tower 01´, the form of which is clearly derived from a cooling tower, was reworked right into a lamp constructed from over 300 elements.
So what do you assume? We love the thought behind this!
