Corporate animal wallpaper (in real life)

Van Mensvoort
August 18th 2009

Students of the Next Nature Theme at TU/e Industrial design in Eindhoven decided to jungle-up their working environment a bit with the corporate animal wallpaper.

Hand painted (!) by Jurrian Tjeenk Willink, Glenn Jacobs, Kevin Pfeil and Josien Rijswijk. Original pattern design by Karl Grandin, of whom the corporate animal sweater is still available.

Thanks Jurrian, Sorry about the misspelling. I fixed that (I knew you weren't married).
I guess I could have posted a better picture than this snapshot from the work in progress, although on the finished ones you might think it is a pre-printed wallpaper (except for some of the more poorly painted logos that were done by me ;) )

Koert, nice that you put it on the site. I like it better when it's finished though.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
