Doshi Levien is a London based design office led by Jonathan Levien and Nipa Doshi. Together, their work celebrates cultural diversity and explores the synthesis between technology, story telling, industrial design and craftsmanship. Above is a range of Doshi Levien daybeds, called Moroso Charpoy, that marry the skilled workmanship of Indian seamsters with Italian industrial production. The simple and geometric nature of the daybeds are wonderful.
Below is a installation series to communicate the history and work of the Wellcome Trust, an independent charity funding research to improve human and animal health. One work contained supportive and provocative words, and I love how they are portrayed as a human heart. Jars were also featured as potions for the human condition along with a paper silk healing dress. On the dress embroidered band aids in silk with sequins refer to biological living bandages used to heal burned skin. Even great design can transcend into interesting and beneficial mediums.
