  • Toer, Fiet.
    eindhoven NETHERLANDS

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Toer (Wouter WIDDERSHOVEN & Castor BOURS): Fiet is an interactive light object that visualizes the emotional impact of movement. The object is built out of hundreds of cones which emphasize the motion of the surface. The points of the cones move closer to each other or expand when the skin moves. All this happens through the influence of sounds surrounding the object. You will see the sculpture become stressed when there is a sudden noise, but when it’s quiet and peaceful it will move in a comfortable manner—it’s like a living organism that interacts with its environment.

    Carlo Maria MORSIANI & Matthijs la ROI: During the summer of 2012, the Italian furniture company IABLU hosted an international design workshop named Candelabrum 2.0 in which the interaction between digital realities and craftsmanship possibilities culminated in the realization of a wooden pavilion. Situated near the Medieval village of Castelvetro in the countryside of Modena, Italy, a complex volume of 900 components and 199 candles provoked a contrast between the local old brick walls and ordered wine yards with the complex composition of fragile wooden sticks and dynamic shadow plays.

  • Phýllon
    vienna AUSTRIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Nikolay Hristov IVANOV: The project titled ”Phýllon” is a lamp design that is inspired by the complexity of the leaf’s venation. A novel process that employs computer simulation is used to generate a design that operates close to a micro-scale. It started as a research design-investigation based on the distribution of the veins of a single leaf blade. The goal was not to mimic the leaf’s pattern of veins, but rather to have a new reading towards it using a speculative data set and reconnecting within certain logic—establish direct connections—more like covered with a spider net, creating complexity via the quantity of the elements, rather than the elements themselves. Via exploring a numerous configurations of points and diverse connection logics of growth, it crystallized as extremely fragile, elegant or even precious single object design.
