Always dig a little deeper.
This general wisdom from the early days of journalism has sadly been forgotten in so much modern journalism.
Especially in blogging.
Find. Copy. Publish.
Fortunately, there are still a few of us classically trained bods out here.
Yesterday one of our favourite pages, therecordplayer.net featured the curious record ratchet by Harry Hasson. As they correctly point out “As a DIY project it’s fine but I think it’s silly as a designer piece of furniture”
Couldn’t agree more.
However the recordplayer’s world is circular vinyl, and, knowing and respecting this, we went off to explore Harry Hasson’s work a little further.
And what we found we liked a lot. An awful lot.
Whereas the “record ratchet” just looks like a junk shop disaster the book side table has a certain charm.
The difference is almsot certainly that with the books the elements used can be seen and recognised, and so become an important feature of the table with which one can intercat and respond to. With the “records” they’re just a disorganised, annonymous pile.
And in general we are very impressed with Harry Hasson’s complete ratchet furniture portfolio
And that is no bad thing. Indeed, if any one in Aschau is reading…..
Sadly Harry Hasson has been too busy designing to get his website organise, and the so for more information you will firstly have to rely on the good folks at dezeen.com
Or watch Harry’s short video.
Rathchet Furniture by Harry Hasson. Great!
