'Peepshow', eleven special objects for nightlife
'Article' has investigated the habits of the population, the attitudes of our fellow human beings and their reflexes. These detailed observations of nightlife cast light on eleven typical human needs, and result in eleven special objects: a drinking glass as a measuring cube; a stool in the form of a chair; a television as a lampshade; an earplug as fashion jewellery; a double glass to camouflage boozing; a sliding sofa to bring pairs together; a beermat as a cleaning aid; a flowerpot as an ash receptacle; a wall cushion to lean on when urinating; a light-emitting diode in a pile of coats; and lastly, as a visiting project from Fashion Force, a splint for the lower leg as a shooting stick.
Comments by the nominators:
The Peepshow project is characterised by its surprising observations of nightlife. The rendering of the nooks and crannies that we recognise here is light and refreshing in its effect, without being at all superficial. With a subtle roguishness, Peepshow demonstrates both possible and impossible new products.
