„shopping cart with wool*“


shopping cart, fluorescent light, 3d printed pieces, raw wool

Tobias Tavella


A shopping cart was redesigned by Tavella with a neon tube in place of the handle, which was then filled with raw wool. In this dialogue, a shopping cart becomes a postmodern skeleton that takes on a primitive and zoomorphic appearance through the wool and an artificial one at the same time through the neon tube. This creates a contradiction that shows the incompatibility of the elements, in the hope of a return to a conscious consumerism and to a sustainable cohesion between man and nature.
