Transforming incredible engineering solutions into art installations and efficient advertising ideas- this is what Korean interactive artist JônPaSang managed to do with the help of the Hyper-Matrix Cube Wall. Especially envisioned for a memorable show by Hyundai Motor Group at the 2012 Yeosu EXPO exhibition, this unusual installation consists of mechanized white 30cm x 30cm (approximately 1 foot x 1 foot) cubes, which can move in and out to form various patterns. The system is based on Mechatronics, a “synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronic control and mechanic systems”. According to official sources, the construction is about 8 meters high and 45 meters wide, which makes the projection room quite impressive. We invite you to have a look at the first video and virtually witness the amazing show. We also uploaded a second video, which we believe you will find interesting- the “making of”. What are your thoughts on this installation? Find it an original marketing idea?
Some shelves are purely functional, while others leave a little bit of room for decorative flair! In fact, the decorative shelves featured in today’s post showcase a range of styling possibilities, from the minimalist to the overflowing. Enjoy browsing the images below while taking in a slew of helpful styling tips from top brands and design bloggers.
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.
