Geo-Frolic Rock Form-ations

Designers are mining geological matter for inspiration and product form. Grittier than the digitised sculpture and organicism of ‘Blobitecture,’ and wantonly surrendering to the distortion of minimalism’s clean lines, this new form is an unexpected juxtaposition of the paleo-primitive with contemporary craftsmanship.

 

Less focused on the use of natural materials or sustainability, this ‘geo-frolic’ form has more in common with mimicry in its allusion to an excavated geology. It is man-made but decorated by an imagining of what the man-made might look like were it to be reclaimed by the wild, natural world.

 

Designers have always enjoyed exploring our relationship to natural phenomena. This trend does well to remind us of an ancient time and our paleo-environmental evolution – recording, like geologic strata, our urban archeology in a ‘post-fossil’ world. It’s focus on rock-like form – rocky outcrops, excavated bedrock, crystals – is also a reminder of the power of nature to win-over and push-through in some future scenario: a wish, if you will, for wilder days to come.
