Fishing for compliments: the halieutic design of Lucile Viaud awarded

The halieutic segment (fish farming, aquaculture) is currently one of the fastest-growing food markets. It could also open many doors to designers... It's no surprise to learn that French designer Lucile Viaud's marine glass project has just received a "Observer" label, and is shortlisted for the "stars" awarded each year by the Observeur du Design. Recently launched through a crowdfunding campaign, she had first imagined the concept of this series, made out of fish and aquaculture products (halieutic design) such as oyster shells, while studying at the prestigious Ecole Boulle in Paris in 2015. 

Bubble Gum & Sausage, Katja Petersson

Est-ce ce que vous croyez voir ? Katja Pettersson, ex-membre des Front Design, a créé cette étonnante Saucisse de verre et sa Bubble Gum Lamp pour l'exposition ‘’Glass Elephant’’ pendant la Stockholm Design Week. "La Saucisse et la lampe Bubble Gum sont basées sur les suppositions que nous faisons tous. Des convenances sociales, des informations que nos sens nous transmettent..." Et la designer interroge : "Mais pouvez-vous ressentir un goût en regardant une forme ?" Is it really what you think it is? Katja Pettersson, ex-Front Design member, designed the glass Sausage and the Bubble Gum Lamp to be displayed at the ‘’Glass Elephant’’ exhibition during the Stockholm Design Week. "The Sausage and the Bubble Gum Lamp", explains the designer, "are based on basic assumptions we all have. Social agreements and information that we take in by our sense... But can you sense a taste by seeing a form?"
