Gaudi, the Spanish designer and artist, would probably claim ownership of this bookshelf if he were around today. The design by dbd Studio twists, turns, curves, manipulatesâ€”it's surrealist design at its best.
dbd Studio has a small but incredibly impressive portfolio, and obviously at least one of them was highly influenced by the Gaudi (and perhaps Dali). Check out more of their work at the links below.
Implications - Consumers have a desire for forms that are new and without precedent. This stems from the ironic appropriation of content from previous generations, which has occurred in abundance over the last decade. Companies should push the boundaries of design to new and unconventional shapes. Industries from interior to personal fashion can stand to benefit.
