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.
Available in two finishes: chrome or zinc.
Gold, Metallic, Silver
Tim Teven (1993), dutch designer, graduated at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2018
A technical and material driven approach to design together with hands on way of working allows him to play and create in an experimental way. In many of the works the production proces is used as a tool to design and a leading aspect to shape the final outcome and function of the object.
Treating materials in an unconventional way to rethink the process of making, allows him to find surprising techniques which then can be translated into a functional yet interesting object. Teven works from his design studio based in Eindhoven founded in 2018, where all the objects are hand made with industrial craftsmanship.
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
