adapting geometries

trays, stool, vessels, 2020

Metal spinning is a process by which a disc of metal is rotated at high speed and formed over a mould into an axially symmetric form. Most large scale companies specializing in this process focus on function over form contributing to utilitarian objects and components such as gas bottles and duct work.

The focus of this project was to revisit the inventory of discontinued utilitarian geometries and find new purpose for them. The alteration of aesthetics and function is achieved by variation of material, finish and processing technique consequently changing the relationship we have to this form.
