Humo is an atypical object imagined by Studio Nocc - the creative power duo of Juan Pablo Naranjo and Jean Christophe Orthlieb. For Designer Box, they explored humour within this object whose essence is to play with fire!
Censer or ashtray, Humo holds in the smoke, transforming a volatile matter into complementary poetry to the object.
Everyone must have had similar thoughts at least once. Broccoli and parsley might sometimes look like a forest, or the tree leaves floating on the surface of the water might sometimes look like little boats. Everyday occurrences seen from a pygmy’s perspective can bring us lots of fun thoughts.
I wanted to take this way of thinking and express it through photographs, so I started to put together a “MINIATURE CALENDAR”. These photographs primarily depict diorama-style figures surrounded by everyday items. Just like a standard daily calendar, the photos are updated daily on my website and SNS page, earning it the name of “MINIATURE CALENDAR”.
It would be great if you could use it to add a little enjoyment to your everyday life.
