2.5 metres of wire can go a surprisingly long way. For the recent Beefeater Design Challenge in Sweden ten young designers were asked to identify and solve a design problem associated with drinking in a bar. The results, all inspired by London, can be viewed at the newly opened Designgalleriet in Stockholm from 27 August to 2 September.
Form Us With Love, who designed the interior for the new gallery, created the "Pusher" drink dispenser for the competition. "There's a side to the product commenting the over consumption of alcohol," says Palmér of the multi-tap dispenser. The other entries include everything from a birdcage (Mattin) to an unidentifiable object (Sebastian Kjersén). For the full story about Designgalleriet, see the October issue of icon magazine, out soon.
