floris wubben has developed a ‘pressing machine’ that extrudes epoxy-clay objects. combining different profiles, and adding tint to the long-lasting material, enables him to create an enormous variety of exclusive pieces of various shapes and color combinations–the composite material is pushed through the forms which defines the resulting form as well as its hue. unlike its first appearance, these one-of-a-kind works are surprisingly very lightweight. the pressed project facilitates a short and fast manufacturing process from ‘semi-manufactured goods’ into a finalized product. the dutch designer demonstrated how the system works at the central exhibition of DMY berlin design festival 2013 at airport berlin tempelhof.

first shown at the 11th DMY international design festival at berlin’s historic tempelhof airport:

UPDATE
the press project will be exhibited at the gallery of rossana orlandi during milan design week 2014. a collection of 10 large vases are on show together with the press machine. for this collection specific glazes and new ways to press with the machine were developed.

 

the first pressed vases (see above) where created with epoxy clay, while the next ones are made from ceramic. as the production process and the machine are exactly the same in both cases, the differences in shape/ appearance are mainly created by the properties of each material.

  • @ christian

    Totally agree. Seeing this every designer alive would wish to be dead, And then to imagine there are probably people that even buy these epoxy Poopsels

  • seeing this, every dead potter would turn in his grave, every potter alive would wish to be dead.

  • Play-Doh kids have been doing this for decades.

    ??????????????????????????????????????????

    Paedra
  • I am really fed up with all these process-driven experiments, producing nothing but boring imperfections while not establishing anything technologically relevant. Besides, this is rather play doh than extrusion.

    produc
  • and once again there is a designer throwing useless epoxy in to the market.
    why not with a more eco friendly material?
