Kitchen Insects by Sayaka Yamamoto



Sayaka Yamamoto of design duo BCXSY has designed Kitchen Insects, a project illustrating imaginary insects found in a kitchen.


Resembling kitchen utensils, the images are part of a project called Little Wonders that Yamamoto completed while studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands.


Here's some text from the designer:


When I was little I lived in the countryside, very close to the world of insects. I always enjoyed watching their many different shapes, colors and behavior – sometimes they made me scared and sometimes fascinated me.


After I moved away from my parents’ house to the big city, I was seeing less insects and I almost started forgetting the great times I spent with them.


In Little Wonders I evoke the same feeling as I had in my childhood and express those feelings in four different ways - Kitchen Insects, HOTARU, Hatching Yourself and Penna (see the other three projects on Yamamoto's website).


Kitchen Insects project is a graphic illustration of imaginary insects in a kitchen.
