Atelier Olschinsky  —> following list

Actually it was really hard for me to pick my favorites from this outstanding artwork of  the creative studio Atelier Olschinsky and after I saw the following list I was complety blown away. The studio is based in Vienna founded 2002 by Peter Olschinsky and Verena Weiss. To put ther work in just some adjectives ios quite impossible, but let me try: the art work is vivid, inspiring and futuristic with a huge story telling and because of the visual complexity the graphics seems fragile but at the same time the elements are balanced and gives our visual senses a strong impact.
That is what they say about themselves:
“It is just so important to work as much as you can, to learn and to be open to new things.
The journey is the award.” (Atelier Olschinsky)

Back to the Future by Irina Werning

February 21st, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

PANCHO IN 1983 & 2010, Buenos Aires

Irina Werning has a very nice ongoing project: Back to the Future. She asked family and friends to reenact old pictures of themselves. She writes:

“I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.”

Just a point of view

“Each day, we are surrounded by seemingly insignificant objects, taking them from one place to the other, or leaving them on a table for weeks, without paying any attention to them. We ignore or forget them, using things only when we need to, making sure they don’t interfere or inhabit our space. But what if they were not so stable and subservient? What if they could swivel, bounce or even fly. And what if they did so all at the same time? We want to imagine a place where objects could live and move, harmoniously, and of their own accord. Without interfering with each other these objects would bounce, roll, turn and cross each other’s paths.

This experiment is about re-discovering our daily surroundings. This is the making of the interactive video that was originally made for If You Could Collaborate exhibition.

This video is the making of the interactive film where each object is assigned to a letter on the keyboard, and can be activated or deactivated at any time. To learn more about our process and to play with this interactive desk, go to

What an awesome and talented guy. Gifted with an extraordinary design mind. In this video he allows us a insight look in his Design work from the beginning on and also he presents Universal Everything. An Introduction into the work flow and process of his projects. And he has some wise comments, we should think about, if we are in to this world of design.

It is quite long, but I didn’t get bored or something. He speaks in a relaxed manner and the information are conditioned in a way that you dont’t lose concentration.

Take yourself some time  and enjoy the presentation of his inspiring work.

Wildlife by Mission Design

March 8th, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

Actually it is not the newest Design stuff (2008), but it is timeless. Design, which i really appreciate, on the strength of the handling with the black white contrast and the composition of  white space and figures. And of course it is always a challenge to combine photoghraphs with illustrations. It feels kind of real, but as a result of the overfilling illustration, the graphic gets a mystic and surrealistic touch, like an extract of a fairy-tale.

Mission Design:

“When working on client projects we occasionaly come up with concepts and ideas that not always fit the client brief, but still has great potential. “Wildlife” is one such idea.
We chose to invest quite some time on this project, together with the photographer Pål Laukli. It turned out to be a project we are very proud of.”

Photographer Rune Guneriussen

January 11th, 2010 // 1 Comment // Posted by Lukas

Photographer Rune Guneriussen from Norway combines Landscapes with household objects.  The description from “Cool Hunting” is way better then anything i could write:

“The scenes capture a peculiarly Nordic combination of otherworldliness and dark humor. A herd of desk lamps turn their lighted heads downwards to graze in the twilight of a lonely Savannah. Two chairs battle for supremacy on a lonely beach amidst a group of helpless bystanders. A line of telephones negotiates a stony mountain pass.
While Guneriussen offers no interpretations of her work, the surreal juxtaposition of man-made objects with distinctly wild settings evokes the fragility and ultimately the ridiculousness of man’s efforts to subdue nature. The clean, sterile lines of the objects stand in defiant contrast to the ragged edges of the stones, waves and trees around them. “

I really like this contrast, the colors and lights of nordic landscapes. Some could be mimicking animals,  others are just completely misplaced..i think “Telefon” is my favourite.
And there´s lots of other great work on her website. I specially like “Evolution” and “Kraft”.
