The website is focused on the community of designers worldwide and was created to showcase their latest and most innovative design work.

The book of the year shows these 730 fresh, and for the most part unpublished original designs.

Instigated Jealousy Kit

»Traces of an Imaginary Affair« is a kit containing a set of nine tools which can be used to create an imaginary affair. These tools leave marks on the body, such as bite marks, carpet burns, bondage marks, love bites, scratches and bruises. In addition, probes of perfume, lipstick and hair can be applied to either the body or clothes. The project broaches the issue of intentionally instigated jealousy in relationships, which often serves to bolster self-esteem or to test the strength of partnerships.
