Description

The “DIO” shelf is the result of an exploration of sneaker aesthetics with regard to shapes, materials, and the underlying subcultures that make its foundation. The wild and intrepid aesthetic of sneakers gives rise to thoughts about volume, color. and material which, when applied to an item of furniture, fall into the expressive category that designer Gustav Winsth considers essential if one is to create a stimulating and personal home environment.

“DIO” has imitated and developed the positive trend of adding a share of granulated waste material when casting the sole of the sneaker. By examining the recycled rubber granulate as the principal material when casting complex geometries and exposing the raw waste, value is created in a climate-smart aesthetic.

The gradient dyeing on the aluminum profiles was achieved by an experimental anodizing technique to create a shifting transition, from the expressive design language and material of the foot to the shelfs crisp form.

Materials:
– Base made out of granulated rubber, casted as one solid piece
– Shelves in anodized aluminium
– Shelf ends in gradient anodized aluminium
– Joining bolts in stainless steel

About the designer


Gustav Winsth

Every educational choice I’ve ever made has been towards design. At first grasping on to the security of a design oriented engineering degree, till complete dedication through Beckmans College of Design. The detour taught me a lot, and I aim to implement my prior educational knowledge into my design, making sure to be a part of every step in the making.

I view an effortless transition between the digital room and physical craftsmanship as a must for an efficient workflow, though 3d-modeling is not a substitute for physical prototyping. Rather as a superiorly efficient and sustainable way of exploring proportions, materials and even volume through virtual reality, providing valuable information before entering the workshop.

I’m influenced by the now, and my design language is a direct response to this. To let the now inform all design decisions would never be a sustainable way of working, unless it is used as the motivation to find sustainable materials and solutions that allow the leverage of radical present design. That is what i am interested in exploring.

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.
