D2 asked me to photograph specifically chosen objects to illustrate an interview with the well known industrial designer Jasper Morrison in their magazine. A basic approach with one lamp lighting was chosen to portrait those items and supplement Morrisons thoughts. I worked together with Simen Skyer on this assignment.
The designers Jasper Morrison and Naoto Fukasawa have compiled 204 everyday objects in search of ‘super normal design’: alongside examples of anonymous design like the Swiss Rex vegetable peeler or a simple plastic bag. The phenomenon of the Super Normal is located, as it were, beyond space and time; the past and present of product design both point to a future that has long since begun.
