In the pressure series, Tim Teven uses material deformation under extreme pressure as a tool to design.
The deformation of metal by exerting pressure leads to exciting technical details, as well as new optical and haptic qualities.
The Pressure vases are made of steel tubes which are pressed in under extreme pressure. Exposing the tubes to up to 45 metric tons of pressure makes them yield and beautiful folds appear, making the normally hard and cold material look soft and tangible. The folds do not only change the appearance of the metal tube but also hold in the bottom disc, giving the tube its function as a vase.
