I'm Perfect?

Thursday, 28 June 2007 by Irene Hoofs

Designweek
Imperfect

‘I’m perfect’ was Leonie Janssen’s graduation project at the Design Academy in Eindhoven last year. Leonie has a fascination with the human body, especially with all the small imperfections and differences between our bodies… so she mapped out the various body types and shapes using pictograms and compiled them in a book called I’m perfect… fat legs, thin waist, big breasts, broad hips, round bellies (anything sound vaguely familiar…) but that is not all she did… unlike many other designs that like us to believe there is something as a ‘perfect image’, Leonie wants us to see that there are many other possibilities than this  so-called perfect image… so she translated her pictograms into products… the beauty of different proportions! Check out her website to read more about the I’m perfect concept
