I Want to Look Like An Eames, Plastic Surgery For Unhappy Chairs.
We met a special lady with a very fascinating design project and just couldn’t wait to share this with you.
As her graduation project at the Eindhoven Design Academy, Bora Hong from South Korea, investigated the striking number of aesthetic surgery procedures in South Korea, and linked the apparent longing for perfection to the aims of contemporary design.
Bora transformed herself into a plastic surgeon, helping ugly and overlooked chairs to become the chair of their dreams - the Eames LCW - and helping fed-up Eames Chairs to become a Maarten Baas clay chair.See here a video how the design-surgeon fulfilled unhappy chairs’ wishes.

Grand Facade | Marlon de Azambuja | Via

Sometimes, all you need to create some magic is some magic markers. In a new series called Gran Fachada (“Grand Facade” in English), Madrid-based architect and designer Marlon de Azambuja works this marker magic on color photographs of famous museums around the world, from the Whitney to the Pompidou and the Tate Modern. Using a marker to black out sections of these images, he reveals fluorescent color-negative line drawings, which would probably look amazing as velvet black-light posters. Thin outlines of color expose where the contours of an architectural rendering would be, the intricacy of which approaches that of the buildings’ original blueprints.
