Using court lines from various sports, London-based product designer Oscar Diaz boldly redefines the rules of the game in his latest work, Playing Lines.
In the spirit of the Hermès 2018 theme – Play, Diaz has taken the liberty to turn familiar sport games on their head, creating an unexpected world where tennis is played with rotating rackets, ping-pong takes on a Rube Goldberg spin, and basketball is scored with the use of catapults.
With a combination of sports motifs and items associated with the everyday, Diaz presents a series of mischievous vignettes each capturing a moment frozen in time, inviting viewers to imagine the action before and after. Bringing these still frames to life is a selection of Hermès objects that take centre stage, joining in the fun and games of this playful universe of subversion – a signature of Diaz’s illustrious career as a designer.
