Wicked! Design on the Edge of Bad Taste - 2011

J.C.Karich definitely don't intend their designs to trigger violent scenes at the breakfast table. It is all to be taken with an ironic twist. But, on the other hand...early monday morning. No hot water in the bathroom. Another letter from the internal revenue service. Your husband is glued to his newspaper, and you've found a strange strand of hair on his jacket. And then you see the cup. It fits the hand so well...

Silver Where? - New Flat Salad Set

This is a new and refreshed version of the flat salad set I designed a couple of years ago, this particular set is made of mirror plastic polystyren. The fact of being able to fold and unfold them is a pretty magic experience. This because once mounted they look exactly like silver but not. I've been looking for the right material choice for this set, though I have not fout the perfect material, flexible enough to fold and bend but strong enough to actually use. Next model will be made of film cardboard, hopefully they wont be wasted even if they are suppose to be one time use servers...

east side magazine - diseño universal

Entrevista reciente publicada en East Side Magazine, es un poco mas que solo imágenes y texto, el titulo retoma el diseño universal, como una entrevista de vyd del año pasado, creo que es de verdad algo que me interesa desarrollar, no tener una firma muy marcada y poder hacer objetos que se adapten y encuentren reacciones equivalentes en cualquier parte, esperando que los proximos diseños en los que estoy trabajando integren ademas algo de interactividad y riqueza para el usuario.
