A couple of years ago (when ‘;the improvised life’; was just an idea), we stumbled on this picture of Tobias Wong‘;s file cabinet bed in Reference Library, and bookmarked it, thinking we’;d write a post about it someday. It is such a great, direct ideaaccent pillow case baby canvas decorative, with many possibilities for implementing in different ways. But we didn’;t think then to follow the little link below the photo, to Wong’;s website, brokenoff.com where we would have seen just what a gifted designer and conceptual artist he was. We discovered this in the saddest way possible: reading in the New York Times of Wong’;s recent death at thirty-five.

Wong’;s work was very much about mocking the pretensions of “;great design”; in thoughtful, clever, often angry ways. He famously hacked –; and mocked –; the work of other designers –; to their outrage –; ?for his creations. He coined the word “;paraconceptual”; to describe his work. “;When I do pull a prank, it’;s my means of sending out a conceptual idea. It’;s not just laughing at them.”; Although he didn’;t like being called a designer, all of his work had the grace and harmony of good design, while pushing you to think or experience things in a new way, like his Stoop Installation:

“;Loose river pebbles were used as the foundation for this stoop design. The pebbles were intentionally chosen for their unsettling quality as customers temporarily lost/shifted their balance upon step (especially those with high-heels which sunk deep into the stones). Thus, causing a minor distraction simulating a ‘;cleansing of the palette’; between the exterior and interior space.”;

…;and his Room Partition made of stacked window fans:

“;Freestanding and modular with industrial cable ties as fasteners”;

…;and a one-size-fits-all computer screen cover made from an Issy Miyake dress (with its famously stretchable pleated synthetic fabric):

…;and capsules filled with silver leaf:

“;Pure silver passes straight through the body?and ends up in your stool –; resulting in sparkly shit !

( who says everything has been designed?)”;

We wish we could ask Wong about his defiance of the idea that if you do what your heart tells you, and stay true to yourself, things will eventually come: “;…;that’s bullshit,”; he told an interviewer. “;It’s all about strategies and risks.”

…;We’;ve often thought that staying true to yourself and doing what your heart tell you IS all about strategies and risk…;
