Adapting contemporary art constructive methods to an object with industrial manufacturing feasibility highly influenced by the delicate and rational choice of angles and elements used in contemporary architecture projects.
Experimenting with metal: adapting construction techniques.
A material-driven project with the goal to adapt contemporary art constructive methods to an object with industrial manufacturing feasibility and to pratically experience metal processes, from cutting and bending until different finishing possibilities.
Transforming metal sheets into a 3D object through using welding and bending, using contemporary architecture as main aesthetical influence for finding a minimalistic form and choice of angles.
Experiment and refine the final form with a more affordable material and process in order to study volume, proportions and angles. It was also useful for reducing elements and making the design cleaner.
The choice of carbon steel and the evident rough and unfinished welding points were part of the elements used not only to emphasize the "industrial" identity of the armchair, but also to tell the story of how it was constructed.
