“Sunny Side Up” started with the fascination for the egg yolks variation of colors. Depending of the geographical and cultural background, the colors vary from vibrant gold to deep orange.
Based on a ‘minute manufacturing process’, each egg is unique and made in 5 minutes, just about the average time to fry an egg. The “Sunny Side Up” hanging art objects bring poetry and absurdity in the domestic context.
Diego Faivre is a french designer who graduated from Man and Leisure at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2018. Currently based in the Netherlands, Faivre’s design practice aims to intertwine a dialogue between seriousness, absurdity and poetry. By creating physical reactions, to twist the way we perceive design, he uses an instinctive and colorful approach to reflect on the modern loss of personal identity and the current obsession with time and money as his primary source of inspiration.
His Minute manufacturing initiative uses his ‘Diego-Dough’ to cover furniture and objects and is an enterprise inspired by Faivre’s previous experience as a blue collar worker, where every action was meticulously calculated, recorded and assessed. The value of time is a measuring unit which evaluates individual performance; the clay acts as a signature component which demonstrates the employment of a unique resource and is immensely practical both structurally and aesthetically.
