What if the world would be a big ice cream?

No feeling of time passing. Only memories. Melting. Flowing. Like the life inside a surreal painting of Dali, everything seems a colorful, hand-painted dream. The walls and ceiling are coming down by big black chocolate drops, the furniture is diving into the floor… The perishable human existence and the fast going nature of time.

It’s July. Nothing can stop it!

Ice-cream cow?!?

I think so… For what other reason would a disfigured, blue cow stay in the middle of the street like a circus performer and with a stick up its butt?

And still…

This might be the answer. If Ice Cream Truck is down, everything else s possible.

The melting building?

Not melting, nor falling… don’t worry. Just an illusion on Georges V Avenue in Paris, France. An architectural masterpiece, a building mural made to deceive the eyes. 🙂

Chocolate Paradise

It looks so yummy that makes you wonder what you should eat first… Go Diva chocolates or the walls of their store.

Melting Lights

Trendy lamps for hot summers. Let’s hope they will not melt for real. 😛

“…the wave form turned out to be the optimal design for reflecting the light diffusely into the room.”

Even after 10 years, this one still looks wonderfully awkward to have a place on any desk.

Broken things

These things remind me of my grandma’s old China dishes… It’s like they came back from my childhood, but only in small parts. Only memories. The rest… is melted. Replicas of hand-painted Chinese pottery, but unique throughout a surrealistic touch. Breaking and recovering… By Livia Marin.

I see my work as situated within a more formal Minimalist agenda. Equally, however, I would want to extend that agenda to include the more ‘impure’ aspects of things that have been handled and used bearing a trace of a social history. – Livia Marin

Melting clock

I think Dali would be proud of this clock.

Marten Baas is melting textures. His Chinese inspired work seems to slowly flow into waves of natural wood.

But he doesn’t resume himself only to a few pieces of furniture. Glass and metal also put no barriers for the artist. Marten Baas ‘melted’ glasses and ice buckets.

Mirror, Mirror on the w… floor?!?

Maybe when the ugly stepmother of Snow White died all the mirrors in the palace started to melt…

This one is not really melting even if it’s July. But it looks much more tastier in winter. 😉

How to make it

Melt Candlelights

Made out of glass, look like frosted ice, but they are easily melting for the sake of the design…

Funny, little monsters

Today Pikachu is overrated. Blobimals are taking the lead! “Squishy, ugly, and totally reusable” putty.

Wisely shaped wood

Morgan Maccari and Rémy Clémente have created some amazing sculptures by playing with wood and studying its properties in the name of art. Flowing shapes, warm textures, a revolt against the material – almost unreal. Looks like melting chocolate! Yummy…

DURAMEN is a series of handmade wooden sculptures. Born of a simple impulse, the one to break with conventional ways of exhibiting, Bonsoir Paris and its team have imagined a series of frames so strongly mistreated that they have become unrecognizable. Their wish is to break the properties of the compound, a form of compromise as minimal and it is efficient.

Solidified by art, captured by humans

Like having the vibrations of the eternal Viennese waltz in his hands, the Austrian designer, Philipp Aduatz, stops the time through the power of design. A song of the matter, a petrified liquid, a sculpture of the magnificent substance of this world.

“(…)created to encapsulate an ephemeral change within a sculptural object…”

An art exhibition for lost memories; assembling simple objects together for a new perception of the surrounding world and passing time.
