freshwest: scaffold vase

‘scaffold vase’

UK design studio freshwest displayed 3 new products; ‘scaffold vase’, ‘lazy chair’ and ‘verdigris table’ at tent london during london design week 09.

miniature gold plated components were developed to make the ‘scaffold vase’ that contains over 3500 parts.  symmetry and repartition played a vital role in determining the form of a traditional chinese vase.

freshwest: scaffold vase ‘lazy chair’

taking on the form from the original collapsing chair whose rounded joints were designed and developed purely for function  (the shape of the rounded components were essential for the collapsing chair to reassemble itself), in an ironic way this is form following function.

verdigris is the name for the green coating or patina formed when copper is weathered and exposed to air over a period of time. this table made from a spun copper top and solid legs is designed for indoor or outdoor use.

  • That is really interesting. These are really good designs. Must be very tough task.
