Object Solutions

Object Solutions wears the mask of a design consultancy that prescribes narratives of an optimized future. With a dose of dark humor, we dissect everyday challenges and propose technological solutions for each point of imperfection.


An Object Solution stems from an extrapolation of daily inconveniences. It finds a gap within our everyday obstacles where a mediating technology can be embraced. It invites us to recognize or adopt the problem it discovers in our own lives, so as then to complement the problem with its designated Object Solution.


An Object Solution uses a hyper-specialized approach to address the problem at hand: each new problem entails a new Object Solution. It encourages us to match our set of everyday concerns with an equally sized set of external problem-solving tools. It proposes an immediate and tangible new relationship to the external world, via itself, rather than leave us to adapt to our ever-changing circumstances on our own.


An Object Solution narrows the definition of our everyday needs in order to enable its existence. It locks in on the present moment. It assumes the rest of our lives to be solved, aside from the problem at hand. As we await an Object Solution to fill this final gap between reality and ideal, future Object Solutions await the appearance of the inevitable gap that will follow.
