UK-based product designer Finn Magee "uses advertising techniques such as surprise, juxtaposition and humor" in his designs, perhaps best seen in his Flat Life series of objects. Each is a poster image of an object, with the twist being that the objects actually work.
"Flat Sound" uses manufacturer Warwick Audio's absurdly thin 4mm speaker to produce "crisp, clear sound" from your MP3 player.
"Flat Time" uses a 7-segment LED embedded within a photo of an old-school digital alarm clock.
"Flat Light"—which was produced in a limited run of 50 and is currently sold out—again uses LEDs, but this time to emulate a desk lamp.
