In this modern era where everything is fast paced, digital comes first into priority. With this technology everyone manages to perform in the utmost convenience, whether they are at home, in their office at on mobile. Various devices have given each user to become productive with just a click or swipe, and these technologies are continuously evolving with newer concepts, faster speeds and superior function. With this ever changing world, we tend to forget to look back at how everything started, how we first become productive, and those mechanical companions which we once used for work.
Codi Goodis pays tribute to the old, vintage pieces through her Communications Through Time project. She transforms a classic typewriter into something else that will still be of function and value—a unique book shelf. This concept started with she saw her grandparent’s old typewriter, which sparked her liking. Wanting to display the object above her modern computer, she collaborates with her architect-father Richard Wismer, and the two works on with a new endeavor.
The Paper Shelf seems to be stacked with lots of stacked paper, ready for typing. This honors the classic technology in communications, and gives a nudge in human resourcefulness. See this project in site, http://www.thepapershelf.com/.
