‘the horness’ was one of thirteen projects presented by students from the potsdam polytechnic college for the kreuzberg manufacturer of hugo brauer at DMY international design festival berlin 2010. it is produced using a metal spinning technique. this production method is a chipless transforming process for the fabrication of rotational-symmetric hollow bodies created out of sheet metal. the process of giving metal a new shape and the assembly of complicated prefabricated parts demands a lot of experience. ‘horness’ attempts to give this artisanry some public cognition.
