this war bowl by now-defunct british team of mosley meets wilcox is a cool art piece and a great example of their humorous-yet-edgy design style.

since the duo’s 2005 split, dominic has carried that innovative aesthetic through to other work. check out his notes tattoo.

in may of this year, the editors at i.d. magazine asked him to participate with 5 other designers in creating a room for losing one’s virginity. dominic’s ideas were so prolific that he decided to create a building instead.

among the many rooms in the building are the “cherry tank” room and the “swinging from the chandeliers” room.

in a word, hilarious.

find the war bowl at generate.
