Studio Ooms in Eindhoven, Holland is run by Guido Ooms and Karin van Lieshout. They design beautiful and practical products. I love the humour in their designs with products such as the Road Kill Carpet and The Rocker, a universal attachment to turn any standard chair into a rocking chair.
Check out their other interesting products such as; solar birdhouse, wooden USB stick, ceramic dildo, goldplated staples, rebellious cabinet and so many more.

Press Release on Pink Rabbit
Artesina, Piemont, Italy
2005 – 2025
“The things one finds wandering in a landscape: familiar things and utterly unknown, like a flower one has never seen before, or, as Columbus discovered, an inexplicable continent; and then, behind a hill, as if knitted by giant grandmothers, lies this vast rabbit, to make you feel as small as a daisy.
The toilet-paper-pink creature lies on its back: a rabbit-mountain like Gulliver in Lilliput. Happy you feel as you climb up along its ears, almost falling into its cavernous mouth, to the belly-summit and look out over the pink woolen landscape of the rabbitís body, a country dropped from the sky; ears and limbs sneaking into the distance; from its side flowing heart, liver and intestines.
Happily in love you step down the decaying corpse, through the wound, now small like a maggot, over woolen kidney and bowel. Happy you leave like the larva that gets its wings from an innocent carcass at the roadside. Such is the happiness which made this rabbit. i love the rabbit the rabbit loves me.”
After almost 5 years of knitting the rabbit found its final place in the italian alps (close to Cuneo). It waits there to be visited by you. You might even take your time or check back every now and then as the rabbit will wait for you 20 years from now on.

I have been fooling around and came across this site. Instead of merely chuckling and moving on I decided to play along just for the hell of it. So, here you are, I encourage you to generate your own evil plan so you’d be ready when the time comes. I have made up one myself and keeping it in reach just in case.
You may destroy the planet or widespread misery being motivated by sadistic pleasure, urge to “show them all” or basically lack of mama’s love. It is silly yet entertaining in an “evil” way. Come on -for a cartoonish feeling- join the Dark Side, we have cookies.
