DettoFatto’s Modern Chicken Coops Pop Up in Sicily

Comments Off on DettoFatto’s Modern Chicken Coops Pop Up in Sicily

Italy-based DettoFatto is an ongoing collaborative laboratory that brings together creative designers and architects to construct furniture, installations, and microarchitecture projects. The team recently held a workshop at FARM Cultural Park where they built a new and improved chicken coop . Designed in Sicily to house poultry as part of a permaculture project, the modern cages were built over a four day workshop in which the designers played with wood to form an innovative response to the traditional idea of a chicken coop. But they are more like contemporary refuges than coops with angular frames kitted out with unusual purple sections. The group create works for a variety of purposes: museums, cultural spaces, and even abandoned buildings . They use the ongoing participatory workshops as their primary spaces to share ideas using simple materials to create big and bold, and fairly contemporary ideas suited to animals or humans. Typically the creative process begins with one drawing day followed by the rapid realization of the project. + DettoFatto Images courtesy of DettoFatto

Comments Off on Andrew Chase’s Spectacular Steampunk Sculptures Are Crafted from Recycled Metal

Andrew Chase works with painstaking detail to create his remarkable  steampunk sculptures — an impressive collection of animal-in spired artworks made from reclaimed steel sheets, car parts, industrial equipment, and more. Each sculpture takes Chase between 80 and 120 hours to complete, and they can be adjusted into different postions. His cheetah sculpture, seen above, has been sculpted from electrical insulation fittings, parts of a car transmission, and another 20 pieces of steel. Surprisingly, it only weights about 40 pounds! + Andrew Chase The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?
