Ding3000 Animal Tales- 04.07.08

ding3001.jpgDing3000 is gearing up for this year’s salone in milan, and their theme is Animal Tales!

“Mother Nature is still the best designer in the world.” That’s why we started copying her most fascinating creations. Visit our petting zoo during the Milano Design Week 2008 and admire floating afghan hounds, shy giraffes, greedy chicks, and not-at-all-stubborn mules.”

Just as interesting as their concept and products… the sneak peek they’ve sent over (images below of the collection!) show some creative use of shadowing to bring out that animal nature in the pieces…

Greedy chick - always hungry for fresh flowers!

The cuco vase is a sphere with a beak-shaped opening glazed in copper and taking in the flowers. This design is inspired by the image of a hungry cuckoo chick.

colours: white, copper
materials: china

Not-at-all-stubborn mule - carries almost everything without a moan!

The sideboard muli is inspired by a mule. The body is made out of solid oak and houses a big drawer and a shed which is accessible from the top. The angled legs leave the impression of the sideboard being „walking”.

Elegant afghan hound - floats swiftly through every living room!

The sofa tazi is inspired by an afghan hound. A curtain of white fringes covers substructure and legs. Only the seat remains visible. Due to this design-trick the sofa seems to “float” above the floor.

measures: 2040 x 900 x 680 mm
colours: dark magenta, white
legs - solid oak
substructure - birch plywood, moulded cold foam

Shy giraffe -being all bright, it hides in the lampshade!

Characteristic feature of the floor lamp jirafa is the construction of the lamp´s base. The three legs differ in length and are attached to each other following a mathematic algorithm. Despite this technical design principle the lamp has a natural appearance and offers different impressions when looking at it from varying angles. The design is inspired by a giraffe.
