October 15, 2008: Lace Fence

Fences are a necessary evil.
Sometimes they work as intended, good on one side and bad on the other, and sometimes they don't. Even high end, expensive fences are not all that pleasant to look at, and the kind most of us are exposed to are definitely not.

The ubiquitous chain link fence, while keeping your flora, kids, pets, and special three legged pig, from harms way, are boring and to many of us, ugly.

Demakersvan, a Dutch design firm, has a solution... Lace Fence, a chain link fence with patterns or pictures woven in.




Unfortunately, many of the cool things we see from design firms never make it to market, or at least markets most of us can afford. Demakersvan has set up a plant in India to make this fencing, so initially they will probably be making custom designs for high end markets, but maybe later they (or a Chinese knockoff company), will make a few standard designs for the masses.



Babs  Wednesday Oct 15 05:04 AM

Interesting concept, but I think they are still ugly... And perhaps even tackier.



Aliantha  Wednesday Oct 15 05:07 AM

I think they look very cool.



SPUCK  Wednesday Oct 15 05:15 AM

Perhaps they can weave some threats into the fence.



Sundae  Wednesday Oct 15 06:06 AM

The flowers are cool, certainly.
The lion is a bit naff, but I suppose in the right place even that would be cool. Like in a zoo or safari park.

When I win the lottery I will have cats on mine. Trotting round the periphery, a slightly different movement on each panel, like a zoetrope.

Pic one:

I see dead people.



birdclaw  Wednesday Oct 15 09:35 AM

I don't know...I'm still on the fence about the whole idea.

I could see how that lion would be a deterrent for burglars. If they could make a mean looking dog that said "Beware of man eating hell hound", I'd be into it.


Awesome!

Are you sure? I see a easy way in through the face of that lion.

Well be me guest. And you might be in a little trouble if the lion actually indicates a lion.




TheMercenary  Wednesday Oct 15 08:13 PM

I want one where the lion actually bites anyone who comes near the fence.



Treasenuak  Wednesday Oct 15 11:07 PM

I'd get the flower one. Too cool.



monster  Wednesday Oct 15 11:43 PM

1) nasty
2) SG -why? It's not like they're an obstacle for cats...more like a challenge
3) If i had to have one, I'd go with a cock and balls design. the first pic made me think of this.



Sundae  Thursday Oct 16 05:39 AM

It would just be as boundary fencing, not to keep cats in or out.
I just like the idea of a running, pouncing cat design

Sounds like a cock and balls story to me...wait, that's not right.
