From the photos, tell me what do you see?
Yes. It looks exactly like an eye. This is actually the residence to one of the most famous model - Naomi Campbell. When we are in school, we are encouraged to really explore our creativity. To really step out of the box. To think of the impossible but at the same time, come out with reasoning that make it sound NOT impossible. We are encouraged to not directly translate an object into a design. For example, turning a palm tree into a lighting (???). Until now, I just cannot accept the idea of directly projecting a palm tree into a decorative lighting.
However, in reality there are some clients who like the idea of direct interpretation of design. But as designers, it is our job to manipulate the object and make it interesting and acceptable as a work of art.
For me, this design successfully adopt an eye into a residence. I guess only the bold will be crazy enough to insert a big 'eye' in her house :)
