Some of the world’s most innovative young designers have teamed up with the Berlin Institute of the Blind to present a bizarre collection of brushes at the Design Museum. The brushes, all hand-made in Berlin, couple unusual forms – such as Marti Guixé’s door key design – with unconventional uses – as evidenced by Matt Theselius’s Mrs Brush Shoe (pictured right). Other designers featured include Hartmut Ringel (Nail Brush pictured left), Berit Burmeister (Egg Nest pictured centre) and Michael Marriott. The Imaginary Brush Factory runs from 30 October until 12 January 2003.
