Multiple Uses for Existing Stuff


A great way to make better stuff is to find new uses for existing stuff. SVA’s Products of Design Program is finding a new use for their studio. For the second year in a row, they’re renting desk space for the summer. It’s great for the program as a way to generate revenue and its great for creatives who don’t want or need a permanent presence in Manhattan but would benefit from being there a few months in summer. Most of all, it’s great for both parties in that they expand their creative networks.

Art and design students are trained in formal design elements that include color, value, texture, pattern, proportion, scale, and so on. The elements are guidelines for making stuff that is cohesive. This artist photographs mundane objects in tiny architectural models that he builds. He’s manipulating scale and the result is fantastic.
