Artist Florentijn Hofman, famous for his Rubber Duck (2007) and many other projects, has once again tapped into his reservoir of caprice and whim. Little Factory is a cartoonized version of an industrial factory, and features three white “windows” and two chimney stacks. The steel structure is simply built from a frame and corrugated roof sheets, and the comic look gently prods at the relationship between building and site. Located at an industrial site in Drachten of the Netherlands, Little Factory still offers functionality as a potential space for an artist-in-residence program. But for now, it brings smiles to passersby as a curious but friendly presence.
