FormFiftyFive

Design inspiration from around the world.

What the FFF?

Founded in 2005 by an ever growing group of designers, illustrators, coders and makers eager to collect and share the best design work they came across, FormFiftyFive soon became an international showcase of creative work.

We scour the world’s best creative talent to keep FormFiftyFive a foremost collection of current design from both the young upstarts and well known masters. We’re constantly on the look out for new features that dig even deeper into what’s happening in the design community, so get in touch if there’s something you’ld like to see on here.

Have a look round, if you see something you love or hate be sure to comment, and drop us a line if there’s a juicy bit of creative gold you’d like to see on here.

Keep it real, the FFF team.

Gerry Judah: Goodwood Sculptures

Calcutta-born, London-based artist and designer Gerry Judah has been delighting visitors to the Goodwood Festival of Speed with iconic and gravity-defying sculptures since 1997. Every year I look forward to seeing what he’s produced, and this around it’s a 26 metre high, 45 metre long, 160-tonne parabola steel arch celebrating 120 years of Mercedez Benz motorsport. The sculpture features two speedsters travelling in opposite directions. Engineering by Capita, production by Littlehampton Welding. Check out the making of video then look back at previous years centrepieces, all available to view on the site here.

The Kelpies

The british media has been talking about The Kelpies a lot this week. Andy Scott is the man behind Scotland’s tallest sculptures which are also the largest equine sculptures in the world.

The 30m high, 300 tonne steel horse structures are visible for miles around and are bound to invite more people to visit Falkirk’s new £46m Helix Park project.

Visitors will have the chance to look at them up close when they open to the public in spring 2014. I can’t wait to see these myself! It’s the sort of approachable public art that allows even the most bitter art cynic to be in awe of it’s beauty, might and technical achievement.

Katharina Fritsch

Stumbled over the work of Katharina Fritsch this week. Best known for her sculptures and installations that transform everyday objects or ordinary figures into something intriguing through repetition and manipulation of scale and color.

Apparently her sculptures are the result of a rather time-consuming process: a piece is usually molded by hand, then cast in plaster, reworked, and then cast again in polyester.

Find more of her work at the Matthew Marks Gallery.

Takahiro Iwasaki

If you’re a creative-type at all you’ve probably messed around with a macro lens at some point. But Artist Takahiro Iwasaki lives in a macro World. He makes impossibly small, super-intricate works from carved electrical tape, thread and other materials. Many of the pieces shown here were part of the Constellations show at Cornerhouse in Manchester back in 2011. According to designboom, Iwasaki now has a new collection of much larger works at the 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art at GOMA in Queensland, well-worth checking out but I love the playfulness of his previous adventures in miniature…

Critical Objects by HelloMe

Critical Objects by HelloMe is a series of items that balance on the border between functional furniture and sculptural form without taking a definate position within either concept. In this self initiated project, graphic design studio HelloMe explores the curious nature of everday objects in three dimensional space.

The Objects will be on show from 22nd of November – 12th December in Berlin at by ( Marsano ) Pop-Up Store

Huge fan of Stanley’s work for a long long time… inspirational.

Petemandotnet on Stanley Chow

Beautifully designed book. I read it too and while I’m also not the target audience, I enjoyed it nonetheless. She has a tone of voice in her writing that is hard not to like.

Luchia Bloomfield on Review: Kate Moross / Make Your Own Luck

Love it!

Matt on Live the language

Paul is Mr Paper all right, what he doesn’t know about GF Smith’s ranges you could write on the back of a postage stamp. I have known Paul for many years and his enthusiasm and passion for the company he …

Luke Tonge on Less Than Jake – Do The Math

Very nice print. Kinda reminds me of the NVA Speed of Light logo which I also really liked.
