the newest project from UK-based designer dominic wilcox is entitled ‘speed creating‘,
in which he designed something creative each day over a period of 30 days. at home, in the studio,
on the train… wherever he was, wilcox made something out of materials he had around him.
this just a look at some of the objects he created over the 30 day period.

day 27: pencil shelf
a shelf made from more than 200 colored pencils which have been glued together into two layers.
shelf brackets are made by cutting a single wooden pencil case box into two and gluing the parts together.
the sliding doors hide the screws.

day 28: inflated socks
to create these lamps, wilcox inserts a balloon into a sock, inflating it until the sock stretches to its
fullest capacity. then, he coats them in clear resin in order to maintain the shape and add strength.
