Prostheses and Grafts Home Furniture by Studio Mk27

Home > Winners > #23349


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Prostheses and Grafts

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Home Furniture

INSPIRATION:
A small sample of the extraordinary repertoire of objects designed and constructed by some civil construction laborers in our country. Although displaced from their lócus vivendi, these pieces place before us the absolute imaginative competence of anonymous authors, revealing the functional strategies used to adapt to work and life within the confines of the project sites.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The furniture is from the project sites of the office, constructed anonymously by civil construction laborers in Brazil. All of the furniture in this exhibit was used at the sites. Normally, with the end of the construction, some of these pieces are lost and others are reused at other sites. The furniture from the projects underwent some small interventions, realized in a precise and artisan manner.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I am inclined to agree with the poet: “The random will protect us”. In his book “The Savage Mind” Levi-Strauss explains that the “bricoleur (handyman) is someone who works with his hands and uses means (convoluted, cunning) diverse from those used by the artisan [...]. The bricoleur (handyman) can perform a large number of tasks, but, different than the engineer, he is not subordinated to the availability of materials or the tools designed and necessary for the proposed project” (Lévi-Strauss, 1966).

CHALLENGE:
It is important to emphasize that the addition of industrialized elements to the original pieces provoke an effect of contrasts and de-familiarization, an unexpected conflagration of the materials that connect numerous temporalities, identities and new functions. In most of the pieces constructed with the re-use of wood, there is some metal, some carbon fibers, some glass, causing us to re-think the transition of the products and the materials and, therewith, the very limits of the planet.
