Are you a Boudustrialist?

Marcel Duchamp's Bicycle Wheel
I am passionate about Architecture and have respect for design that can be experienced, and bring global awareness. See past FAVEs of the week. (Green concrete, Floating homes, and Waste Landscape blogs)

Relative to interior design, furniture and lighting, I am inspired by all things crafted with an attention to detail.. I get excited when traditional materials such as wood and metals are merged and used in unexpected ways...re-invented.

Like Marcel Duchamp's 20th century Bicycle Wheel, he challenged assumptions about what constitues a work of art. By simply taking a prefabricated bicycle wheel and attaching it to a pedestal, he subverts the established notion of the artist's craft and the viewers experience.

Can we apply this notion into 21st century interior and architectural design?   Yes, and I call this movement Boudustrial: the collision of boutique and industry.  In future weeks, I plan to investigate how traditional materials such as wood and metal can be used in a refreshing, whimsical and unique ways.
