Creative Department started with a rusty old tub that had been sitting out on a neighbor's porch. They gave it the squeak treatment and turned it into an illuminated table, which they call a "tubble".
The thing about taking a photography class is you're always looking for new and interesting images to capture. Generally, I'd rather not set up a shot so much as come upon a potential subject that strikes my fancy, but this technique of capturing 'light interference on soap film' just might make the set up worth the trouble.
This pic from Ikeahacker caught my eye. A collection of Blanda Blank salad bowls have been inverted and placed strategically underneath a console table for a delightful effect. They could be hung from a wall for a 3D bubble effect too.
Bubbles are brilliant, ergo, foaming hand soap is also brilliant.
We recently scored some Kandoo foaming hand soap for free, but it's Flouro-green-death colour is frankly disconcerting. I wanted to refill the container with something that doesn't look like it will melt your hands but the container warns you not to refill it with anything but Kandoo products.
"PAH!" I said, and did a spot of research.
Turns out that you can simply use...
- Two dowel rods
- Spool of non-absorbent string

New from Scandinavian Design Center is the Soap Carpet. This collection of bubbles is made of 100% hand-tufted wool and is 220 centimeters in diameter. Besides green, it comes in white too. I just have one question: Is it cute or does it look like a puddle of something expelled?
