CARBON was an experiment in materials, Housefish used carbon fiber reinforcement to form an impossibly thin concrete shell chair (less than 3/8″ [10mm] thick). The legs are joined with their in-house developed 3D-printed sawdust, infused with resin for strength.
The intention was to discover generation methods that evolve from the surface subdivision, towards volume strategies, in this case cellar aggregation. The design process followed different methods of expressing these aggregation structures, exploring the relationship between negative and positive.
The cell wall is a student project submitted as the final project for the Dynamic Environment studio, Students: Kishan Desai and Sandy Ferrier, Instructor: Mostafa Alani, Ph.D.
Dror Benshetrit has created a new building system called QuaDror that might change the way you see building materials. Unveiled at the Design Indaba conference last week in South Africa, QuaDror is a space truss geometry that has structural integrity and flexible design capabilities.
Fabulous decorative vases by Jennifer McCurdy look like spectacular sculptures. Her carved ceramic artworks impress and delight with original and beautiful designs that test the limits of the ceramic material and turn decorative vases into stunning centerpieces for interior decorating.
Designed by 3D print service Digits2Widgets as a means to demonstrate the possibilities of 3D printing, the “fabric” is quite flexible. So flexible it’s almost comfortable against your skin. It’s like cloth, as it droops when lifted.
Andrew Kudless’s work is a kind of geometric adventurism, exploring the functional limits of the materials he works with, making them clamp, slot, bolt, or hinge together in new ways.
One Balance Desk (the layer version) by Peter Qvist consists of 48 sub-elements made of laminated birch veneer plus glass plate.
Ipsen is one of the most important ceramists of his generation. Even his most ambitious experiments and changes in direction invariably show a sure hand, an eye for potential, and a profound knowledge of materials and technique.
The goal of this project by Kirsten Dunn was to create a light fixture that functioned as another light source but she also wanted it to be really versatile, rather than custom-built for one specific place in her home.
U.K.-based ceramic artist Anna Whitehouse set a goal to create a new bottle each day for 100 days. By limiting herself to a single form, Whitehouse was able to stretch her creativity to formulate new designs previously unexplored in her practice.
Designed by Austrian design firm 13&9 Design, BuzziPleat is the latest sound absorbing option added to the BuzziSpace catalog of smart, modern acoustic solutions. The lightweight, large-scale forms are sculptural in nature.
