Bio Accessories of the Urban Weary
Industrial designer Ben Landau and felt / soft sculpture artist Brittany Veitch have created a range of wearable living couture accessories to bring elements of nature into urban living. Each Bio Accessory has a living component of which the wearer must tend to, whilst the accessory works to block the unappealing aspects of urban living; masking sounds, sights and scents with a little greenery, bird calls and fresh air. According to the Australian design duo the accessories represent ‘mobile natural environments’ designed to be the perfect symbiotic relationship. Bio-Accessories is currently exhibiting at the Melbourne City Library till August 30, 2009.
