Acclaimed Designer Creates The Portable Living Suitcase, Lunchbox, Drawer & Container

The creative mind behind the awarded design Suitcase, Lunchbox, Drawer & Container by Acclaimed Designer explains, My artistic goal is to explore the way people inhabit and understand spaces. To express that idea, I made lunchboxes, suitcases, drawers and storage containers which contain living spaces inside. My work illustrates portable and instant lifestyles which are prevalent in our society. I chose legos because they are associated with architectural forms, which have industrial and mechanical functions. I create lighting effects without using electricity. I use fluorescent plexiglas to make my work glow like neon lighting. I also made home-like structures encased in forms resembling consumer products, like storage containers. To me, a house is a giant container that holds everything we own, including ourselves. This new work is constructed from semi-translucent white and fluorescent plexiglas, and legos – with the addition of mirrored surfaces and more complex interior patterns and designs, creating a wide array of optical variation in the interiors as well as on the exterior surfaces. My integration of house into container, or vice-versa, plays on the idea that the functional similarities between the two are interchangeable, and that either one could potentially store the other. .
