Plastic Nostalgia

Raw-Edges_PlasticNostalgia_001

This piece by Raw Edges was inspired by the specific design language of Fisher Price Toys from the 1970’s. Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay have chosen one of the ultimate symbols of high quality, brightly coloured, highly finished plastic, which during theirs and many childhoods typified homes across the world. Fisher Price toys with their plastic properties of durability and myriad shape and colour possibilities were seen on every nursery floor, a positive symbol of a plastic manufacturing age.

I *love* it!

  1. God, that’s beautiful. I love it!

  2. I remember my Fisher Price toys! There was something very comforting about the durability of plastic.

  3. hahaha, it’s come full circle: adult furniture trying to look like kids’ toys which try to look like adult furniture.

    It’s like translating from one language to another, and back again, on Babelfish, and getting some sort of crazy sentence.

  4. I still have some Fisher Price toys up in the attic. I was clearing out and had the record player out the other day it was so much fun! :)
