As soon as you enter the massive labyrinth of stands, you are met with Kuku‘s lovely little stand. You probably remember the plant pots made from old light bulbs from out Spring Greening Contest, but now Kuku has created a smaller version that glows in the dark! Standing next to a little machine the designer made herself for chopping the top off eggs was Kuku’s 6-pack eggshell plants. They are perfect for a sunny desk or a windowsill but unfortunately they were not up for sale, but just to add a little something to the charming decoration. Also designed by Kuku, are some tinted colored glasses made from wine and whisky bottles and a set of water-based, hand-printed handkerchiefs with writer Cortazar’s Instructions for crying. A very poetic idea for an object to keep always at hand, particularly as winter is just starting here in Argentina.
Kuku won this year’s Best Stand Design Prize (sharing the space –and price- with jewelry designer friend Marina Callis). Made from repurposed wood beams as shelves and builders’ floorboards as walls, all materials where lended by an architect friend. Kuku’s space stands out for its simplicity, cute factor and eco-friendly approach to a temporary exhibition space.
