Unique Design: Buttons Galore

General Design, Innovators & Creators, Product Design, Product Innovation

Augusto Esquivel has taken an ordinary object, and has changed its purpose from functional to aesthetic. Some people see buttons as a means to fasten shirt collars and jackets, but Esquivel sees them as an atom of a molecule. By tediously stringing thousands of buttons together, he has created floating objects such as a piano, a grandfather clock and even Edison’s phonograph.

statue design

This Portuguese artist has used decaying buildings as a canvas. Each portrait is chipped out of brick, concrete and stucco walls. The layers exposed create some really dramatic effects. What a great way to bring old, decayed buildings back to life!
