Designs That Fascinate: Pierre Lota
French designer, Pierre Lota, creates new objects from other objects and records it in a video he calls "One Object In One Minute," a project he launched in 2013. Every time I watch one of his one-minute videos, I'm fascinated and anxiously wait to see what the new object will be. For example, he created an adjustable lamp out of two wood clothes hangers and a CD rack out of a wood pallet. The objects are always practical and modern. He uses minimal tools, works on a clean table and is amazingly organized. I suspect the oops are edited out of the video. But that's okay. I sometimes wonder if some of these objects are durable; still, I'm thinking to throw that skepticism aside and for my new studio try to create one of his projects: the metal-strip wall lamp. I love this wall lamp. No doubt, it will take me more than a minute! Check out a couple of his videos. Don't worry, you're not expected to become a do-it-yourself convert.
If you missed them, here are a couple of old to new items:
I tried to find out more about this designer, even trekked over to google.com.fr. I can only add that he is a "follower of the Blitz Design," I discovered even less about that, and so I assume the literal meaning is "quick designs." I enjoy looking into his very creative mind and am a follower of Pierre Lota.
