“the job of every architect and every designer is to give the world more art, more new, beautiful, and fascinating things to see.”
“we don’t like anything soft. everything we do is hard.”
-rosie from faster, pussycat! kill! kill!
when was the last time you got punched by design? we are inundated by images everyday which wear us down with their hopeless nostalgia repackaged as new. weary of quirk and whimsy but still in need of a laugh and a stiff drink, we need to confront that which claims to be contemporary in an attempt to define the present. there are no more kings. we are looking to get knocked in the teeth a bit by the unexpected, the beautiful, and the present.
