Friday Favourites

Australian Designer/Artist Liz Jones has created these rather appealing Rubbish Rainbows made from the bits and pieces she found from trawling beaches. I think it makes you take a different look at things people throw away, and gives objects that would otherwise be disregarded a precious and intriguing quality. It also reminded me of the ad campaign for the film One Beach, which we mentioned in a Friday Favourite post a while back. Found via Lost at E Minor.

I thought this was a hilarious idea from Dominos Pizza in the Netherlands. They added a human voice version of an engine sound to their vehicles to improve awareness of their silent electric scooters – check it out below. Thanks to Jim for finding this one.

Milar Lagos’ book igloo installation entitled ‘Home’ was on show at New York’s MagnanMetz Gallery a while back, but has been picked up on various blogs this week. His sculptures and installations often feature books and stacks of newspapers, with some amazing results – check out his tree trunk sculptures featured in the You, Me and Charlie blog. Thanks to Emma for sharing this one, found via Neatorama.

Thanks to Jade for sharing this, found via The Stylist: “The first lickable lift at creative agency Engine (who was in our netball league) uses the Jaffa Cake flavour – I hate orange and chocolate (I know, shock horror) and sharing food so it doesn’t really appeal to me but I do like the fantastical element of it.”. More info on Campaign’s blog too.

In case you missed them, Diem Chau‘s beautiful sculpted crayons and pencil leads appeared in the V&A’s Power of Making exhibition at the end of last year, and have been shared around in a recent Stylist mailer. Thanks to Christine for finding these – more images via Colossal.
