Description

The Ash Collection is an innovative system of versatile furnishings born out of the challenges that face regional manufacturing. The twelve-piece collection of seats and tables features a diseased Ashwood base and cast bronze top; fully sourced, designed and manufactured within 100 miles of Toronto.

To minimize the number of patterns and moulds required to build it, all of the parts in the collection stem from a single egg shape. The tooling used to make the product is repurposed into the product and process; enhancing its role, extending its lifespan and saving factory floor space.

Once the base is made, the shavings from the milling process are reclaimed, mixed with re-usable refractory sand and compacted around the base to make the mould for the top. When the molten metal is poured into it, the sawdust burns away and the sand goes back into production to create new moulds. The only trace left behind by the mould is the textured finish on the metal top; nothing is wasted.

Integrating the design and manufacturing processes out of the gate allows STACKLAB to produce the maximum number of objects with the minimum amount of waste. Optimized with the aid of an algorithm, the wholly circular solution seamlessly combines design, tech and craft.

About the designer


STACKLAB

STACKLAB is a multi-disciplinary design practice based in Toronto. Through its products and projects, the studio aims to provoke meaningful discourse about our ways of living. Founded by Jeff Forrest in 2013, STACKLAB is known for its innovative blend of design, tech and circular manufacturing. Rather than work backwards from the desired output, such as a new chair or a home, the team applies a diverse set of skills and perspectives to problems worth solving. With a particular passion for the challenges facing regional manufacturing, the studio believes that the key to smarter, more efficient and better-for-the-environment living is its signature systems-based approach. Taking inspiration from the technology ‘stack’, which leverages existing technologies, infrastructures and skills to create iterative, holistic solutions, STACKLAB’s regional network of experts in science and craft enables cross-pollination throughout the process. Oftentimes with the aid of an algorithm, every step is optimized to ensure it does the maximum with the minimum; opening up opportunities for material upcycling, waste reduction and alternate scenarios for reuse. STACKLAB strongly believes in design as a vehicle for critical thinking. The team approaches every problem without bias toward a particular method or medium to maintain its focus on impact. Their output might therefore be described as a container for new ideas; the result of a rigorous process in pursuit of the best solution.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
