Tyvek Vase, DuPont™ Tyvek®
Tyvek Vase is made out of waterproof paper, DuPont™ Tyvek®, a nonwoven high-density polyethylene fibers. The use of Tyvek® approaches a different way of using industrial material by transforming it into a beautiful home object. The objective was to create a simple and light (yet strong enough to stand upright) package for flowers.
aluminum rod, vegetable tanned leather, 19in x 19in x 18in
Pretzel Table was formed with a single aluminum rod covered with vegetable tanned leather. Once the curves have formed, the table was boiled into hot water which makes soft leather to become strong and rigid. A tension is created through the pairing of a traditionally crafted material with a process designed for efficiency, revealing an aesthetic based on a new way of making. The resulting form speaks to directly to the process of its production. In the end, the mix of color and form is reminiscent of Pretzels.
