Tobias Wong - Protect me from what I want.

I recently came across Tobias Wong and immediately fell in love with his fun and playful style of products. I  liked his 'Indulgence' range as part of 'Just Another Rich Kid', in particular the 'Gold pills' aimed to "turn your innermost parts into chambers of wealth" or make you shit gold! His gold-plated Mcdonalds spoon was also pretty epic.






I also thought his 'Kevlar rose' and 'money pad' were cool and along with most of his work carried a strong message regarding consumerism and modern day society.







Tobias Wong died at the age of 35 in a suspected suicide although many believe he hung himself whilst sleep-walking. Whatever happened, Tobias Wong was without doubt a great talent and in his short career brought a lot of happiness to a great number of people whether it be described as design, art or a balance of both.
