In the Re:Re:Publication Project initiated by artist Li Weiyi and rePublication, 34 groups of designers and artists are invited to transform dummy books that are becoming more and more commonly used in interior decoration into new pieces of work. Being one of the participants we chose dummy book Decoration to make our product “Decoration”. The design of Decoration is simple. It seems that it is following the modernist principles of “ornament is crime” and “form follows function”. However just as its title says, the only function of it is pure decoration. For us the dummy book Decoration is a wonderful object where modernism and its exact opposite exist in harmony. We simply added four legs to it to make our final product. It is perhaps a stool, a little shelf, a dummy book with legs, or just pure decoration.
