Found via Designboom last week Julien Berthier’s Love-love project is sure to put a smile on your face. At first glace the image of a figure stranded on his partly submerged yacht is one of discomfort and urgency but that soon changes when you realise the boat has been designed in a way that it has become a functional and safe leisure object.
There’s also a video on Vimeo to see footage of Love-love in action, and while you’re at it check out the rest of Julien’s portfolio to see more of the same from the French artist.
