This week, Hudson Yards was turned into sex toys and Banksy set up shop



This week on Dezeen, Wolfgang & Hite designed pink architectural sex toys to comment on New York's Hudson Yards development, and Banksy launched his own merchandise to keep custody of his name.
Design studio Wolfgang & Hite created a series of silicone sex toys based on the design of numerous buildings in the Hudson Yards development, which is described as the largest private real estate development in the US.
The XXX-HY collection sees Thomas Heatherwick's Vessel turned into a sculptural butt plug, and the 10 Hudson Yards skyscraper by Kohn Pedersen Fox redesigned as a large dildo, as a way of putting phallic architectural design "to the test".
Banksy launches range of branded merchandise to maintain custody of his name
In London, graffiti artist Banksy launched his own range of branded merchandise following legal action taken by greeting-card company trying to seize legal custody of his name. In order to protect his brand, Banksy debuted his new merchandise line in a pop-up-shop installation named Gross Domestic Product, in Croydon, UK. While the showroom is for display purposes only, all sales will be carried out online when the website opens.
