Suitcase, Lunchbox, Drawer & Container by Acclaimed Designer

Acclaimed Designer Shares The Portable Living Suitcase, Lunchbox, Drawer & Container

The creative mind behind the award winning design Portable Living by Acclaimed Designer spells out, My artistic goal is to explore the way people inhabit and understand spaces. To express that idea, I made lunchboxes, suitcases, drawers and storage containers which contain living spaces inside. My work illustrates portable and instant lifestyles which are prevalent in our society. I chose legos because they are associated with architectural forms, which have industrial and mechanical functions. I create lighting effects without using electricity. I use fluorescent plexiglas to make my work glow like neon lighting. I also made home-like structures encased in forms resembling consumer products, like storage containers. To me, a house is a giant container that holds everything we own, including ourselves. This new work is constructed from semi-translucent white and fluorescent plexiglas, and legos – with the addition of mirrored surfaces and more complex interior patterns and designs, creating a wide array of optical variation in the interiors as well as on the exterior surfaces. My integration of house into container, or vice-versa, plays on the idea that the functional similarities between the two are interchangeable, and that either one could potentially store the other. .
