Description

The “Magic Been” is a fully handmade stainless steal sitting object. It consists out of thousands of small waste particles that are welded together piece by piece. This process asks many hours of patient manual labour and an immense knowledge of the material and its techniques. The result is a new flexible raw material that can move in all directions. This flexible metal cloth is draped over a steel structure and extensively mirror polished. That’s why the “Magic Bean” looks soft, glows and doesn’t have the typical cold metal feeling.
The organic form is shaped like a bean and naturally fits in every environment. While during day it can be perfectly used as a sitting object, at night it can turn into a light sculpture. Thanks to its subtle translucence the “Magic Bean” integrates its surrounding space. This statement piece, in which all of Oyen’s talents come together, can be both used inside and outside, as a useful item or a sculpture.
