MODE—NO.LASER/FFFORM FMP

FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION


Material Type was the name of the brief set for one of my graphic and media design final major projects. The brief encouraged us to explore typography through physical mediums. Choosing a quote or statement and enhancing and portraying the meaning through physical forms, materials and texture.


Louis Sullivan:

Sullivan is known for steel-frame constructions, considered some of the earliest skyscrapers. Sullivan’s famous axiom, “form follows function,” became the touchstone for many architects. This means that the purpose of a building should be the starting point for its design.

Fitted with 4ft of LED tube lights.


Process:


All the materials used in the build of the coffee table were reclaimed waste materials, therefore the table was almost free to produce with the only cost being small metal hardware and LED lighting.

I wanted this table to be a homage to handmade craft and to limit the use of CAD and CNC. Each letter form was hand cut and finished with hand tools.

The entire process was photographically recorded and produced into a 156 page editorial which can be seen below.

Rationale:


Spirit and thought can be seen in every piece of furniture. The time spent and process behind every cut and imperfection enhances the viewers understanding of the object insight. 

The rationale behind the piece was to create an object that lacks perfection yet still functions, sparks interest and differs from the crowd while paying homage to DIY aesthetics.
