Item description for AEKI: Experimental Design and Functional Art by Dingeman Kuilman & Dennis Elbers...
Who hasn't wished they could play with or at least reach out and touch the display items when visiting a design exhibition? Aeki (that's Ikea spelled backwards) collects all of the experimental design objects featured at a recent Dutch exhibition wherein the works were explicitly not off limits to the public, as well as dynamic and playful installation shots of the objects in their much homier-than-usual setting--a customized museum romper room. The design of the book itself is universally charming, and the objects are both humorous and outstanding. For example, there is an arm chair made from a recycled metal shopping cart; a toilet built for two; an undulating Ping-Pong table; a coat rack made from a garden rake; and an automatic-rifle-esque ketchup dispenser attachment. At the end of the book is a guide to all of the participating designers and design firms with complete contact information.
