Obsessions make my life worse but my work better by Stefan Sagmeister

posted in Varied others  at 9.42 PM from Grabels (near Montepllier) / France listening Oren Lavie

Obsessions make my life wors and my work better by Stefan Sagmeister via www.mr-cup.com

 

I always believe everybody know some of the project I discover years ago, you know when you talk to someone and you said the usual "what, you don't know that ?"... So I want to show you one of the project from Stefan Sagmeister that touch me the most, the most crazy, huge, beuatifull of his long list of projects ! It was a great moment last week to (finaly) saw a talk by him, specially one about "beauty".

 

Let him describes this project : On September 13, 2008 Sagmeister Inc. began the installation of 250,000 Eurocents on Waagdragerhof Square in Amsterdam. Over the course of 8 days and with the help of more than 100 volunteers, the coins were sorted into 4 different shades, and carefully placed over this 300 sqm area, according to a master plan. The coin mural spelled out the sentence “Obsessions make my life worse and my work better.” After completion the coins were left free and unguarded for the public to interact with. Less than 20 hours after the grand opening, a local resident noticed a person bagging the coins and taking them away. Protective of the design piece they had watched being created, they called the police. After stopping the ‘criminal’ the police–in an effort to ‘preserve the artwork’–swept up every remaining cent and carted them away.

Crazy, right ?  Watch a video about this here too !

 

I could have called this post "Nice to meet you Stefan Sagmeister" but it was too short to be really a meeting, too much people went crazy to talk to him after his talk at off ! Like a designer rock star ! Anyway, I gave him the letterpress calendar and ask him to shoot him with it !

I love type on the wall, and I am happy to do wall stickers, but this bring the idea to a next level ! WALL STITCH is a proposal of new sign design by YOY and K's Design Lab. With the latest modeling technique and hi-res 3D printing, they make signs just like embroidery done on the wall.
