People Share ‘Accidental Wes Anderson’ Photos Of Real-Life Locations That Belong In His Movies

There’s an interesting photo hunt going on online, which gets even more interesting if you’re a fan of the visual style seen in the iconic movies by director Wes Anderson.

I’m talking about the subreddit called ‘Accidental Wes Anderson,’ in which users upload the pics taken all around the world of buildings, sceneries or even people who seem to belong in the next Wes Anderson flick. And surprisingly, there are quite a few spots from North Korea to Ukraine, that compete for the attention of the famous director.

Maybe there’s a spot like this someplace near you? Then don’t hesitate to share your photos in the comments!

One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Simply crafted with a handmade origami technique that uses high-quality paper, Orikomi lamps are a statement of love for the planet.

Orikomi brand was created in November 2013 and it’s based in the sunny Lisbon, Portugal.

Two architects, Ana Morgado and Carmo Caldeira, are responsible for the development of the Orikomi products. They use the geometry of origami as inspiration, blending the paper folding art with lighting and focusing on its environmental concern.

Orikomi lampshades have a positive ecological impact due to the fact that they are handmade, have low energy consumption (promoting the use of energy-saving light bulbs) and at the end of their life cycle are completely recyclable. These products make a statement as an alternative lighting solution with low impact on the environment but with a high impact aesthetically.

The brand follows the principle that design should be economical and affordable, being paper a material that fulfills these requirements, but also, perfectionist and ambitious, especially considering the importance of lighting to guarantee spatial interior quality.

Despite its complex construction, it is extremely easy to hang and suitable to light up a variety of spaces at home.

It is an extremely versatile product, available in several models and colors, allowing innumerable possible conjugations.

At the online shop, besides the big range of plain pastel colors, you can find unique patterns that are the result of partnerships between Orikomi and other designers, which diversify the collection. Orikomi also has 3 available sizes of lampshades to match all type of rooms and needs.
