We went for it without any hesitation.
We’ve formed the world at a quickening pace.
What on earth is this world that we’ ve created?

私たちは振り向くことなく突き進んだ
私たちは加速度的に世界を形成していった
私たちが築いたこの世界は、いったい何だったんだろうか?

Director’s Statement
Using a sheet of graph
paper, which is typically
used for architectural drawings,
I combined straight lines which
stretch out in three directions to
construct the visual. I think that
original fascination with animation is the
limitations. To challenge the limitations,
I started creating animation by using minimal
elements. Apparently, it looks like computer
graphics though it’s really digital animation
drawn by hand.

Las geniales ilustraciones a lápiz de Mike Lee.

For the past 14 years, Spazuk has developed and perfected a unique technique that allows him to use the flame of a candle or the flame of a torch as a pencil to create his paintings with trails of soot. Using various tools, he intuitively sculpt the plumes of soot left behind in response to the shapes that appear on the canvas.

Las típicas ilustraciones de los libros de idiomas recortadas y pegadas en el medio de detalladas pinturas de unos preciosos ficus de hoja grande o árbol del caucho. Me parece increíble lo genial que queda la loca combinación creada por el artista Oliver Osborne.

Umbra Shift

Umbra Shift is an extension of Umbra that focuses on contemporary influences in the design community. For more than 30 years, Umbra has broken the mould by creating entirely new categories that apply thoughtful design to everyday items. Umbra Shift revisits these roots with a roster of established, emerging, and in–house designers who share Umbra’s passion to re-think things, designing personal objects they themselves would want to give or use at home. The result is a collection that expresses diverse points of view, yet sits together with a shared belief in ideas that are functional, familiar and forward thinking.
