Graduation project at the Design Academy Eindhoven, 2015 / Graduated Cum Laude
An attempt to revive and give a shape to imaginary designs and functions that have been found within literature and cinema and never have been given a chance to exist in reality. A room dividing hat that comes from the movie ‘Brazil’; a breadknife that cuts and toasts simultaneously, originating from ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’; and a bottomless bag that belongs to ‘Mary Poppins’. Daniela Treija has translated these imaginary inventions from books and films into real-life designs. And these are only three examples that she has worked out, from a total of 83 sketches in her inspirational guidebook ‘Form follows Fiction’.
