From the overflow of fancy hi-tech gizmos emerges Tom Ballhatchet's hamster-powered paper shredder -- a sparkling beacon of analog promise, for lack of a better description. Not only does this contraption keep your documents safe from wandering eyes, it also teaches the hamster a bit about responsibility (okay maybe we're pushing it, but bear with us) -- he's gotta work those little legs to spin the wheel that shreds the paper that becomes the crunchy, crinkly stuff he loves to prance and poop on.
If you're in the Milan area, take a peek at Tom's work, along with the concepts of 14 other graduating designers from Central St. Martins College of Art and Design in their exhibit, "Art School," at Salone Del Mobile next week, from April 18 - 23 at stand A15.
Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
