παρθενογέννεση στην τεχνη?
ποιος αντιγράφει ποιον?
ποιος είχε πρώτος την ιδέα?
ποιανου είναι γυναίκα το παιδί?
αντιγράφω μερικά σχολια απο εδω απο τον πολυ ενδιαφεροντα “διαλογο” που εξελίσσεται γύρω απο το “bench” της φωτογραφίας που σχεδίασαν οι Gehry Partners [το αρχιτεκτονικο γραφειο του Frank Gehry γνωστου απο το Guggenheim Museum στο Bilbao] που όμως “μοιαζει” αδερφάκι με τα bench που σχεδιάζουν οι Matthias Pliessnig και David Trubridge.
- ldogge Says: 100% awesome…
- jc Says: Looks like a poorly done knock-off of Martin Puryear or Matthias Pliessnig.
- lorbus Says: Too much Trubridge, too little Gehry.
- sebastian Says: nice curves!!!
- David Trubridge Says: i would expect design from the venerable studio of gehry to be highly original and exciting, but sadly this derivative work is anything but. i have been creating designs like this since 2000, which have been regularly featured in design magazines all round the world. body raft is currently part of the cappellini catalogue. you can see others, such as the (”snaking”) suncorp bench and nananu, on my website http://www.davidtrubridge.com. come on gehry guys, you don’t need to do this, do your own stuff!
- amsam Says: Yes, if it were a competition about whose existing work Gehry’s bench most resembles, it’s much more like Matthias Pliessnig’s work than David Trubridge’s. Pliessnig’s work is far superior to Trubridge’s, too. I’ve always liked about Dezeen’s comment thread that it points to similar work by others. But unlike many of the commenters, I’ve never thought it was somehow bad that one person’s work would unknowingly resemble — or consciously reference — another’s. It’s all part of the conversation. As for the bench, it’s nice to see Gehry focus on human scale objects, organic materials, and deconstructing some of his curves. (Check the end of the snake.)
- andrew Says: i think the comment from david trubridge above is a terrible mistake, online forums are not the place to critisise others and accuse them of copying your work, all whilst promoting yourself. perhaps instead of spending so much time online critiquing others and clinging to the past it would be wise to work a bit harder at creating something “original and exciting” as you say, because i had a look at your website and I didn’t see anything that really met that criteria either.
- OKP Says: andrew i agree.. also mathias hs work is muchhh more exciting to see and shape then davids.. I was surprised finding designer commenting on this by saying ‘ do you own stuff’
david. better mail gehry personally if it bothers you so much..
- Xit Says: am I always think of Newson’s beech chair from 1988 when I see this type of construction as opposed to the work of Trubridge or Mathias. http://lh6.ggpht.com/_ZaflhHmPfBE/R7tdeWolkQI/AAAAAAAADaM/9P2QtYEuP3s/woodenchair0001.jpgAnyhow if we delve into design history im sure someone did something similar a long time ago.Also nobody owns the exclusive rights to designing in steamed wood, its like saying because a design is made from formed plywood its an “Eames rip off.”
