Ivan Mavrovic, Croatian steampunk artist

March 31, 2009

Two days ago I had my Sunday excursion at Zagreb Salon exhibition, I’d previously mentioned while blogging on Zbigniew Libera

I saw some great domestic projects and I’m so glad that I got an opportunity to see several artworkz which were part of some international exhibitions in the season 2007/2008.

The project that really made me happy was steampunk cell phone and keyboard designed by Ivan Mavrovic.

So far, he’s  the only Croatian designer creating steampunk artworkz… Steampunk, an analogue but futuristic oriented subculture, a parallel history where Victorian design hasn’t vanished in the past, but reveals its new function interlaced with technology in mannerism…

Steampunk is mostly based on craftsman’s enthusiasm and visions… very refined DIY technique…

Ivan Mavrovic’s ‘cell phone is redesigned cell-phone housing, composed of various materials such as metal (copper, brass, silver), wood, leather, stone (Turquise), and some recycled parts, such us a clock instead of the LCD screen.
