Lost. As young designers, that is how we have been feeling lately. So we decided to explore this feeling, and try to understand it.
We concluded there are four main reasons to feeling lost, and designed a product for each one of them: inadequacy, discomfort, aimlessness and nostalgia.
Inadequacy as the feeling of not having a clear function in society, not knowing what to do, because your abilities seem useless.
Discomfort as the feeling you get when nothing feels right about the environment around you, when everything bothers you.
Aimlessness as a feeling of not being able to decide what your next move is. Is there a right path to follow?
Nostalgia as the feeling of not knowing where you are on time. You are lost in memories of the past, or dreaming of a bright future, going to the office everyday thinking about traveling around the world.
At first glance the products seem to have a very clean and simple design, but a closer look reveals an unusual combination of different materials. Different white textiles, Eucalyptus wood, concrete, plastic and porcelain.
The four products were presented at the Ventura Hive exhibition, part of Ventura Lambrate during the Milan Design Week 2014.
