For last ten days we have been always speaking about the future in its various forms and shapes. But what about the contemporary ordinary objects in the future? Will the plastic products of everyday use be the rare archeological items or collectable antiquities?
This question was also the main idea behind the original project called Plastic Relics by London based studio Committee. In 2009 they collaborated with Japanese design store and brand Cibone to create their own vision of the future of the ordinary objects. They symbolically travelled to the 27th century and designed special boxes with lids made of a contemporary plastic objects. A hand-made lacquered containers are formed by extruding the profile of these plastic pieces (for example cd player Muji, telephone and others). The outcome are extraordinary objects where the lids made of these plastic products are presented as things of value and collector interest which is possible in the future.
