A metaphor is a figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance-
  • "A mighty fortress is our God."
  • "Your in the dog house."
  • "Mothers meeting."
  • "My memory of the event is foggy."
  • "The homework was a breeze."
  • "Mary stole the spotlight with her performance."
  • "The teacher got to the bottom of the problem."
  • "Walking on egg shells."

Why Use a Metaphor?
  • Metaphors can help readers or listeners to better understand something about the object or idea to which the metaphor is being applied.
  • Metaphors can make speaking and writing more lively and interesting.
  • Metaphors can communicate a great deal of meaning with just a word or a phrase.

They are the work of Geoffrey Cottenceau, as his thesis work at, a Swiss design school in Lausanne. Have a look at more here.
