Kuva Trestles

Furniture / 2015 / University of the Arts Helsinki

Around the time I was asked to develop these table supports I had realized that even though I had been working in a craft environment for some time, I had kept using a quasi industrial design process, manufacturing from drawings. With a total of fourteen trestles requested by the art academy’s for its temporary quarters, the commission seemed to provide a context appropriate to divert from this. All items were drawn directly by hand or machine into material found in or around the workshop, a constraint that gave them a half explosive, half maladroit energy that eventually struck strong vs. the former administration premises.
