the intelligent hand
name of design : Drink not Drunk
design by : antigone acconci + Antigone Acconci + Riccardo Bastiani from italy

designer's own words:
DRINK Not DRUNK Glassware collection Drunkenness driving is a social problem in many European countries. Recent restrictions on the alcohol level of drivers cast a shadow on gay nights out amongst young people. We, as young designers, gave our “response” to this problem with two ironic objects: a bottle and a jar realized in blown borosilicate glass, by hand. The little thickness of glass, extreme clearness and elegance given by traditional Venice glass manufacturing give these objects, thought for young consumers, a classic appeal. Drunken Joe is a jar with graphic warnings against drunkenness by measuring the capability to drive according to the level of wine already drunken and suggesting to drive, walk or take a taxi... Halfway Home is a wine bottle with a double shell: a normal size bottle from outside and a half bottle from inside, you drink just what allows you to drive, but keep up appearances!

design by : yoav avinoam from israel
3zd prize. Design competition organized by Designboom.

designer's own words:
By using sawdust waste from the Wood industry, as a response to the way we look at our usage and exploitation of materials in modern culture. The sawdust (taken from different kinds of woods) is being pressed with resin into a mold that already contains all of the object parts, the opportunity was exploring new ways of integration between the legs of the furniture and the sawdust through expansion of the joints, this and the way the sawdust crumbles toward the edges creates a new material esthetics to once destined to be waste material.
