50 Skeletal Adaptations

From Bone-Carved Pendants to Deathly Dinnerware

— July 17, 2011 — Art & Design
Anyone feeling slightly morbid this year should check out this list of skeletal adaptations. From dishware to fashion statements, bones are a valid source of inspiration for many designers.

Skeleton leggings are a hot find this year, as ladies everywhere are showing the darker side of their personality with this legwear. If wearing skeletal adaptations are too much, viewers can always check out a few skulls to decorate their bedrooms. Either way, human anatomy is more than just a structure to keep our bods together. These bones serve as inspiration for designers everywhere.

Implications - Contemporary society is continually saturated with a variety of products, so companies must use shocking methods in order to gain attention from customers. Businesses would be wise to take similar creative risks when campaigning to stand out in the marketplace.
