Disguises by Design


Today I thought a lot about privacy. It was just one of those days in NYC when you get tired of trying to pay attention to everything going on around you, just to make it through the day. When I found OOOMS City Hideout, I really understood why someone might need such a mobile human-locker. I can’t say that I would want to carry it around all day, but it makes sense to have this kind of urban camouflage. It also seems like something Superman could benefit from, especially today, as phone booths are far more scarce.

The OOOMS line of Dutch design by Guido Oooms and Karin van Lieshout features many unusually useful objects like the Solar Birdhouse, Wood USB Sticks, Rebellious Cabinet, and another favorite of mine, Roadkill Carpet. The plushness of the roadkill is a bit disturbing, but I bet the intended mess would disguise or at least distract from any real pet hair that assembled in its woolen loops.
