After publishing several industrial sites gone friendly on our site (do you remember the decorated gas tanks in Japan, or the Soviet pipe manufacturing plant that got a new look ? ), I believe it is fair to believe in a worldwide movement of transforming industrial settings into more appealing areas. This is also the case with this unusual high voltage electric towers in Hungary, located near the M5 motorway in Újhartyán. The towers, as seen on Laughing Squid. were installed by MAVIR, a Hungarian electricity transmission system operator. According to the official press release, the action is described as follows: “A new trend is spreading around the world, the industrial and public facilities the establishment of the investors are trying to “humanize” the most gigantic scale landmarks”. We salute these ideas, which encourage the existence of healthy landscapes, while providing new opportunities for modern artists all over the world. How do you find this project?
Let’s get started with some styling inspiration from Urban Outfitters, a brand that offers an interesting array of wall-mounted shelving options. Many of them celebrate the best of geo style. Below we see a trio of shelving solutions, including the Bryn Mountain Display Shelf, pictured at the top right of the photo. Note how each of these shelves holds “like items,“ such as rocks, jewelry and other natural wonders. The styling of this Geo Triangle Shelf proves there’s power in empty space. You may be tempted to fill every square inch of your decorative shelving, but remember that sometimes less is more.
And one of my all-time favorite shelf styling tricks is to display plants on the top layer of shelving, which will draw the eye upward, as well as create height and drama. Below we see shelf-top plants in a tour of my retro-modern home office. Last but not least, we shine the spotlight on the challenging task of styling kids’ room shelving, drawing inspiration from the product photography of The Land of Nod. The Zero Gravity Wall Shelf below illustrates a perfect balance of practicality and design flair, mixing carefully placed toys with books in eye-catching colors.
