New Mexico by Nir Meiri
Updated: Jan 16
This collection is based on the long standing investigation of shapes and materiality, playing on the tension between the domesticated and the untamed, hand craft and industrialism. New Mexico reflects the designer's fascination with ethical design and the questions it raises. This series addresses the key issue of design consumption today, versus green thinking, and the possibility of creating a lifestyle in which design is strongly present, alongside an awareness to the environment and to values like recycling, up cycling and locality. The use of readymade clay pots, 3D printed parts and wood, opens a discussion of the user as the center of the design process and suggest the option for future customization of such products.
This project is in collaboration with fab-lab il.
