The bowls all have different personalities and change character whether you place them on the table or carry them on your head.

    Fantastic ! They remind me of the work of Arne Bang.

  • modular

    Gosh I hate black and white pictures like this. They make projects look so old and dated. Looks like I’m looking for an already dated 1983 stuff…….. get rid of that.

  • Joe Swift

    she’s hot

  • Joe

    Wonderful

  • Matty D

    I was a bit skeptical about the premise of the design, but all in all, very nice work. Every piece is exeptional!

    Now on to more important things, like who is the model? She’s HOT!

  • g22

    this is sooo fun!

    I love them!

    very very nice.

  • berry

    funky&groovy!

  • LOW

    Cute…

  • Max

    They look better without the heads…and by better, I mean fabulous!

  • modular

    You really think she is hot? :|

    Gives the expression “bowl cut” new dimension. Lovely stuff, when does the millinery begin?

  • ayesha

    brilliant concept and lovely bowls!

  • Matt

    They look like they might keep your head cool for a short while too. Maybe people with anger management issues could keep one in the freezer for when they need to cool down.

  • rik

    i’m surpised to see so many positive reactions. To me this is a rather kitchy project. I mean, bowls and hair cuts? Am I missing the important link here?

  • Nakul

    ha ha ha…lots of fun…n fresh…

  • tat

    as It’s said, the concept of the graphic campain is awesome.. and how has It been expressed.

  • R_

    That’s a very interesting concept to get some shapes for bowls. Some of them are very well done!
    But somehow I thing the last two pictures are needless, they seem to show that particular hairstyles became bowls and then bowls try to became particular hairstyles…

    playful concept

  • AZM

    Good Idea of presenting simple bowls, with nice ladies.

  • http://www.lgblog.co.uk Helen-LG

    Some great bowls there, I love the quiff, although not all of them seem recognizable as based on hair dos to me.
    I get the feeling the concept was born as a hit back at some awful childhood bowl hair cut

  • Eva Peimbert

    Love it! . Creative and well presented. Great workmanship
    Why didn’t I think of it first!
