What separates us from designers or anyone with a good eye for design, is their ability to look beyond the obvious and turn a daily object into a work of art! And when you combine this knack with an eco-consciousness, the result is amazing. Creations that soar as far as the imagination. What others consider as trash, waste, garbage or simply junk, they see as a palette of design potential!
The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID) have awarded their poster competition prize to a Croatian design duo, Ivan Orin Vrkas & Bojan Kristofic, who created a poster out of garbage to proclaim their message.
Their rationale included the explanation: “Our process of thought started with the five basic needs of every human being: water, food, health, a home, and energy. As we believe industrial design can fulfill these needs, and the perfect way to do it is through the development of recycling and reusable energy technologies.”
