Designers Osko+Deichmann of Berlin have covered a series of domestic objects in a coating normally applied to street furniture in order to prevent vandalism.
The collection of 19 pieces includes a clock, lamps, vases, a piggy bank, a bird house and a set of garden gnomes.
The project is on display at Gallery S. Bensimon in Paris from tomorrow as part of an exhibition called Natural Indigo.
Here's a little text from the designers:
The Inspiration for this series of 19 vases, accessories and lights derives from a phenomenon we have noticed in Paris and London.
In the city center a lot of street furniture, like junction boxes, lamp posts and bollards are covered with a extraordinary stucco-like coating.
We instantly liked the visual and haptic quality and later found out, that it was a special anti-fly-poster-coating to prevent people from putting stickers and posters everywhere.
We did some experiments with the coating and transfered it to design.
