Shooting still life is no easy matter, especially when taking photos of typically overlooked everyday objects like office supplies. Swedish design trio Kontor Kontur are masters at arranging, styling, and shooting their studio office goods in artful compositions– their Color Chart print, which is the combination of all their styled supplies in a single shot, is something I’d love to hang on my own office/studio wall one day, as a colorful reminder to keep my space tidy.
Beyond the neat and color-coded set-up, take a closer look at the individual objects on the table. There are some really beautifully designed items there, whether its a compact little red stapler or a lovely sea-green bound book on freshwater fishes. From their interview with Co.Design:
We used things we found around us in our everyday life, a mishmash of ordinary but beautiful things that describe the craftsmanship behind graphic and office work.
Sometimes lining things up neatly is really all it takes to make a great visual impact. [Via Present & Correct.]
