Bendable Interior Objects by Form Us With Love
I subscribe to a newsletter by a Swedish company by the name of Form Us With Love, and they just sent me an announcement for their latest design product/company called BIO (Bendable Interior Objects). This design object is very similar to BluDot’s line of accessories in that they both use a very simple stamping process using one sheet of metal. With BIO, they take their product one step further by allowing the user to bend their own accessories in to shape after they have popped the piece off of the main metal sheet. This sheet also cleverly works as a carrying device. As well, the complete flatness of the piece is also incredibly efficient for shipping. All these aspects combined leads to an extremely well thought out design, thus crack.
The objects I’m showing above are BIO’s line of desk accessories including a card and pen holder as well as a paper holder. I like the product for a number of reasons, but the most compelling for me is the childlike reaction I have reminiscent of when I was a child building my first toy model. The pieces in my old toy models came in these flat sheets. Each piece had to be spun and pried at until they popped out and were ready for assembly. The BIO product kind of takes it’s cue from these models, but the assembly is somewhat more satisfying in its simplicity and obvious utility.
