Image from Jellio
I saw these pieces a few months ago in Cargo (which is now defunct) and I had wished I would have saved the magazine or researched these further. Well, thanks to OhGizmo!, I now know where to find them. If you check the link for Jellio, you will see that this piece, Turbo Wall Art, is sold out, but nonetheless, it is a fantastic piece. For those of us that used to put together model cars or other toys, you will no doubt remember how the pieces for these toys used to come in several pieces of injected molded plastic. In order to put the model together, you had to pull the pieces out of the plastic and then assemble it. In my opinion, those pieces of plastic, before you detached everything, used to look really cool. Well, designers Mario Marsicano and Chris Lenox got the bright idea of making a large scale piece that looks just like those little pieces of plastic. Yes, it is a reminder of childhood, but it has such a great aesthetic. It is has the soul of a sculpture, but works lilke a painting since it hangs on a wall. Plus, they paint it all one color to further give it that “model” look. You almost want to pull it off the wall and assemble it. Once again, a simple idea that just plain works.
