Eric Ku is a 26 years old Graphic Designer who recently graduated from School of Visual Arts in New York. Ku was born in Taiwan and immigrated to USA in 2001. His projects are one by one so conceptual and so inspired, but “The Chair project” which is part of his senior thesis project called Mission Redefinition, is definitely one of our favorites! It is a series of exercises that explore the concept of redefinition through the application of graphic design.

The BauBike is inspired by Bauhaus design. It is constructed around the geometric shape of the square and the equilateral triangle. The design is stripped down to clean lines and raw material. The open-end piece above the back wheel, offers the possibility to customize the function of the bike to whatever need you may have. The different accessories can be placed in the tube and can easily be changed if needed. The design follows a set of formal rules, limiting the geometry to straight lines in a pattern of 60 and 90 degree angles in proportions following the principle of the golden section. By limiting the form with a fixed set of design rules and stepping away from the traditional function-oriented approach to the design process, this project transcends the border between design and art, raising fundamental questions about the nature of the bike as design and as a lifestyle accessory and introducing a much needed playfulness on the bicycle scene.

Green pockets are ceramic tiles which fuse nature with the interior space, improving both air quality and health. They attach to the wall to create the illusion as if they were actually growing from them. The tiles, made from recycled materials, serve as planters and their unique shape allows tehm to interlock, thereby creating different patterns depending on the vegetation planted.

This blog I find a little strange to be honest. What I like about it though is that is has a really strong identity and feel, and the way the blog stays true to its identity - takes discipline! Check it out it's called 'grijs'.
