When we look at all steel we have at home, we can’t even imagine the potential they have. It certainly doesn’t come up to our mind making furniture…
Well but for Studio Markunpoika it actyually does.
Engineering Temporality is the creation that gives an unexpected use to tubular steel. Designed by Studio Markunpoika, the product is nominated for Design of the Year by London Design Museum.
Designer says that is “trying to create a bridge between the metaphysical and the material world using design as medium of expression.”
He manipulated the tubular steel by cutting it into small rings. Connecting the rings back together to form a semi covering layer over an existing object was a method of capturing the physical space the object occupied. Then he burned the structure supporting the metal, and came out with this amazing creation.
Inspired by the designer’s Grandmother’s Alzheimers, Engineering Temporality evokes the ideas of vanishing memory. Great inspiration and great way to bring it to life.
