Designs That Fascinate: Pierre Lota

French designer, Pierre Lota, creates new objects from other objects and records it in a video he calls "One Object In One Minute," a project he launched in 2013.  Every time I watch one of his one-minute videos, I'm fascinated and anxiously wait to see what the new object will be.  For example, he created an adjustable lamp out of two wood clothes hangers and a CD rack out of a wood pallet. The objects are always practical and modern.  He uses minimal tools, works on a clean table and is amazingly organized.  I suspect the oops are edited out of the video.  But that's okay. I sometimes wonder if some of these objects are durable; still, I'm thinking to throw that skepticism aside and for my new studio try to create one of his projects: the metal-strip wall lamp.  I love this wall lamp.  No doubt, it will take me more than a minute!  Check out a couple of his videos.  Don't worry, you're not expected to become a do-it-yourself convert.

If you missed them, here are a couple of old to new items:

An adjustable lamp made from two clothes hangers.  How cool is that?

I tried to find out more about this designer, even trekked over to google.com.fr.  I can only add that he is a "follower of the Blitz Design,"  I discovered even less about that, and so I assume the literal meaning is "quick designs."  I enjoy looking into his very creative mind and am a follower of Pierre Lota.
