Athens, Greece-based G Design Studio has worked with the Athens State Orchestra for many years. In their 2015-2016 promotional campaign, the designers created DIY musical instruments from fruit and vegetables.
This short stop-motion commercial by Clem Stamation transforms a cantaloupe, cabbage, carrots, fennel, a squash, peas, and a radish into a drum, a pan flute, and a lyre harp. From G Design Studio:
“We hand-carved string, wind and percussion instruments from fruits and vegetables sourced from the local farmer’s market. We wanted to use something affordable and accessible to communicate the idea that creativity can be a positive catalyst for change, even in the worst-case scenario.”
