Description - Forms with a Smile by Moniek M Bucquoye

Today surrealism may be firstly known as a school in literature and fine arts, but the influence of this 20th century school on other domains cannot be underestimated. The world of contemporary design doesn't escape a healthy portion of surreal humour. Forms with a Smile bundles designs and objects of modern surrealists and shows that nothing is what it seems to be. Hairy carpets, lamps in the shape of a milk bottle, USB sticks cut from wood branches or chairs made from plush toys. Is it just humour? Or is it a stimulating statement wrapped in a contagious smile? Just like surrealism, design sometimes tells more than we think. Armed with subtle irony these new surrealists wage war against a world reigned by a certain serieux. Text in English and Dutch ILLUSTRATIONS 300 colour *
