RGB Vases by Oscar Diaz

Initially commissioned by the ICA for a fundraising auction sponsored by Veuve Clicquot, the RGB vases started an interpretation of the Veuve Clicquot yellow-orange identity colour.
With the help of the computer Veuve Clicquot yellow-orange identity colour was decomposed and transferred the resulting RGB colors into three hand blown glass vases.

When nested, the three vases colors mix again with the light passing through and Veuve Clicquot yellow-orange colour reappears.
The colors mix visually, but not physically, creating a very subtle but vibrant perception of it.
The RGB vases combine the excellence of a process like glass blowing, refined through more than two thousand years, with references to the contemporary culture, were screens are extremely common, and its colours, based on the RGB colour system.

The vase works as a three dimensional pixel were the RGB colours overlap to create a specific colour which appears only once the three vases are nested.
Each vase is made using the values of red, green and blue that make up the specific purple color (P242). When the three vases are nested, the light passes through, and mixes the three colours so that the purple becomes evident.

A computer is used to calculate the exact amount of pigment that each vase must have in order to achieve the desired colour.

Wireframe Bag by Oscar Diaz

Spanish designer Oscar Diaz delivers Wireframe bag, which was displayed as part of the Okay Studio & Friends exhibition at the Otrascosas de Vilarrosàs gallery in Barcelona. For more images and designer's description continue after the jump.
Wireframe is a shopping bag designed using just a few components.
The bag uses standard strap and a PVC mesh, and is all hold together with the same type of industrial plastic rivets used in cars.

Every element has been made to stand an important amount of tension individually, so when they are put together the bag becomes extremely strong.
The handle is coated with rubber to improve the grip and protect this area from wearing quickly.
