olga kravchenko: snow dust

‘snow dust’ lampshade

‘snow dust’ is a series of products that are designed to look good with dust.

the series of objects by olga kravchenko, an industrial design graduate from shenkar college of engineering and design in israel, includes a fan, shutters and a lampshade. the project offers a change in the perception of dust which is often seen as an annoyance. during the design process, kravchenko discovered dust looks best when it recollects in a natural environment, or seems to be part of such an environment. thus each object takes on a design that is derived from a branch-like base form, repeating itself to create a 3D pattern, forming a sort of large filter of dust.

  • Yasuhito Hirose also imagined one dust-collecting shade, that was on display at Eindhoven Design Academy.

  • So most fans do this, so that isn’t the issue, but lets not make some design sense out of it, that to me is ridiculous. Its dust, it’s not pretty and a good air compressor would clean that right off. The designs are cool, but I purposely do not buy things if they look like dust collectors. but I guess to a “Dust Collector”, it’s a beautiful thing. Can I say that, or is Martha going to get me.

  • interesting design and probably cheap to produce, although you should check the materials for hazardous behaviour when it comes to heating lamps!
