PRODUCTS • Prune Nourry & JR . Dinner plates

Dinner plates are often used as an artist's canvas. The artist is called to create a series of works that, once set on the dinner table, tell a story, or inspire us to say one. In today's post you can see part of two really intriguing dinner plate collections. The first one, designed by David Lynch, and the second by sculptor Prune Nourry & photographer JR (check Artsy's JR page as well here )

"I said yes to this project because I never made plates before and I thought
it would be interesting to try to get ideas for a story that could take place over twelve plates...''

"In this project, Prune and I wanted to focus on a man's most essential "tool," his hands,
which can function as a drinking cup or as eating utensils...''

PRODUCT • Earthquake 5.9 bookcases by Budri & Patricia Urquiola

I saw these bookcases and found their shape, materials & color combination very interesting. Then I read their story, and liked them even more. Inspired by the idea that we can create something beautiful even after a disaster, the designer, Patricia Urquiola, used earthquake-destroyed materials from Budri's factory.

As you can read at their site

''The new Earthquake 5.9 collection recalls the Emilia earthquake of May 2012 that affected many businesses in the area, including ours. It’s a collection of furnishing items and coverings in marble and onyx, created using hundreds of fragments of ‘quake-struck’ slabs to create something beautiful, to inject life back into something that had been totally destroyed in the space of a few seconds.

Patricia Urquiola chooses wood for the structure of the stand, a warm and welcoming material, resistant and anti-seismic, as if to safeguard the company and its rich array of stones through a strong and protective shelter. Inside the stand, the Earthquake 5.9 project proceeds into a secret room where fragments of marble ‘rescued’ from the slabs damaged by the earthquake cover an entire wall that Patricia Urquiola transforms into an exclusive artistic inlay with her creative generosity.''
