11. GARY GALEGO

DESIGN BICA E PAPEL COFFEE CADDY

DESIGN INTENT: The Bica e Papel represents a melding of ideas about function, comfort and culture. Indicative within the design are considerations toward contemporary culture in particular the social hubs of café scenes, which it looks to accommodate through pure functionality and elements of relational aesthetics.

INSPIRED BY: Space is treated more as a material that comes into play within the design. Taking ownership for the duration of their stay while reading a newspaper/magazine, or enjoying a drink. The fold-out to either side of the Bica-e-papel provide pockets in an almost organic manner that pertain to the activities existing within café culture. The literal translation of Bica-e-papel is coffee and paper, which evokes a sense of the conceptual nature behind the work as a multi functional and social product connecting directly into a contemporary social network.

MATERIALS: Plywood construction and manufacture.
