enrique muda bull: 'drinking straws lattice' at DMY berlin design festival 09

from afar, spanish designer enrique muda bull‘s ‘drinking straws lattice’ looks like a normal room divider. but upon closer inspection, one sees that the panel is made up entirely of drinking straws. from the front, the appearance of the straws is totally flat, however the distance that observers stand from the screen, as well as the movements they produce will determine what is seen through. if there is eye contact between two people when they are facing each other and standing very close to the lattice, they will be able to see an area of the other person, completely isolated like a pupil of an eye. if one person stays close to the lattice and the other one goes further and further away, one will see more of the surface of the straws and what stands behind them.

  • Interesting!!
    Relativism here is king apparently. Not to mention a bit of spite. If everyone broke new ground then noone would even try creating. Parthenogenesis only happens with bees (considering the comment about bees, I think its funnily relevant- for non believers look it up… THEY DO).
    Isn’t it that straw is a raw material for a designer? If somebody is using pencils he is bound to make lines or dots or a stain of some sort. Straws tend to be magical viewed like that. Designers are inquisitive people, and make the most of a material’s properties (usually). Nobody can lay claim to the use of straws, or the laws of optics.
    Sometimes design is about emergence. In laymans terms… discovering the Americas from east and west is the analogy (we still qualify for discovering America, even though the existing tribes did so thousands of years back).
    Ohh btw, isn’t it that this is a different thing all together. If not mistaken, it is a room divider, not an isntallation for Hermes, or art.
    And one final note for the brave ones casting the first stone (especially Niels). Where were your loud voice when Toqujin Yushioka did his version? Was he copying Tara Donovan? Did she copy him? Or are you afraid to throw stones to mountains?
    Mate… keep on trying and only your track record can prove who you are as a designer. For the moment rest assured you make lines somewhere. At least that. Lets hope your judges do too!

  • How come you are all discussing on originality?
    In such a connected global society, similar things appear and they are not necessarily born in a linear time-frame, one influenced by the other. It is a different interpretation each time – even if it’s the same material and similar structure.
    Yes, there IS (!) the straw work by Tara Donovan and then the less interesting application of Tokujin Yoshioka. They were the precedessors. This new work is of interest too.
    Give him a chance!

    ART is always before and better than design
  • They All stole the concept from it’s original creator; the Bee.
