PAUL & CUCK e IL TRANSFORMING DESIGN
Questo modo di creare nuovi oggetti viene definito Trasforming design e si basa sul cambio di utilizzo di un oggetto specifico. Le lampade PAUL & CUCK vengono tutte realizzate con oggetti di uso comune, come birilli per segnalazioni stradali, taniche per liquidi ed elmetti di protezione. Tutti questi oggetti vengono appunto trasformati in lampade dopo essere stati manipolati, uno per uno, con tecniche originali.
PAUL & CUCK is the new born line of lamps inspired by the techniques of the dadaism artistic movement. The concept is very simple: plastic objects of common use are transformed into lamps. Using a special plastic molding technique, the lamps are shaped in unusual ways. Indeed, if you look at the finished objects you have the impression they are still melting from the heat of the lamp itself. Every lamp is unique because compleatly hand made.
This peculiar way of creating new objects is called Transforming Design and is based on a switch in the utilisation of a specific object. PAUL & CUCK is made with dismissed common things, such as skittles normally used for traffic signaling, tanks for liquids (i.e. fuel) and safety helmets. All these things are manipulated one by one and transformed into lamps using innovative techniques.
