LOT-EK: Objects + Operations

  • $ 50.00

LOT-EK is a design practice that believes in being unoriginal, ugly, and cheap. Also in being revolutionary, gorgeous, and completely luxurious. LOT-EKs work reveals extraordinary transformations of ordinary things from their famous shipping container projects onward combining maker culture and hacker culture into beautiful and radical visions for sustainable and meaningful living. LOT-EK: Objects + Operations surveys dozens of projects built, unbuilt and in-progress; polemical, practical, and in-between complemented by photographs from LOT-EKs multi-year URBAN SCAN project, a vast photographic document of infrastructure and incident, as well as essays by Thomas de Monchaux and interviews with founding partners Ada Tolla and Giuseppe Lignano.
