DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
DVELAS COLLECTION

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Upcycled sail cloth for contemporary furniture

INSPIRATION:
All our designs are inspired by observing sailing techniques, nautical construction and the poetry of the sea itself, a conceptual component being essential in all of them, to merge all of this together.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
DVELAS promotes the recovery of used sails to transform them into contemporary designs, emerging as a creative reaction to harness the vast amount of material disposed from sailing ships, taking their aesthetics, materials, techniques and forms as a new way and inspiration for design. DVELAS has two types of productions: Limited Editions: series originating from a specific sail, identified with a tag with data about the source of the sail and the port of origin, the boat, the type of sail and the original manufacturer. Unique Editions: Exclusive pieces originating from a specific area of a sail with special plastic qualities due to their patina, marks or numbers. These pieces are also tagged with the data about the source of the sail.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
VAURIEN: Simply tying two ends, it becomes a lounger that protects us from the wind and provide shade. It can be rolled up for storage. B&S: permits its dual use, as a lounger or as an easy chair. TRIMMER: The fabric rest on a three supports structure of iron tube. And a sailing rope framework is used to provide tensioning strength to the system adapting perfectly to the body. DRIZA: adapts to different heights. The system can be moved with several pulleys being able to raise and lower. GÉNOIS can be hung for storage.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in February 2009 in Pamplona and exhibited in BEST-ED (http://en.best-ed.org/) in Matadero Contemporary Art Center, Madrid. It starts the activity in August 2010.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:

Its design, permits its dual use, as a lounger or as an easy chair. TRIMMER: Built by the union of three of halyard cuffs, resting on a three supports structure of iron tube.

TAGS:
conceptual, dual, tension, upcycle, exclusive, unique, edition, limited, rigging

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Our designs seek to reuse the old sails by analyzing inherent concepts in sailing skills, such as versatility, balance or tension. Each original idea is started with simple concepts which are interpreted by the sailmaker and cleared by the designer to achieve conceptual designs with a technical language used by the professional sailmakers and giving a new life to the material, reaffirming its dignity as sturdy material with a past.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge is the creation of high quality contemporary furniture with design concepts and manufacturing techniques, used in the sailmaker industry. The seek is to get an excellent reuse of the material by searching fine eco desing and the pursuit of a new language for furniture.

PROFILE:
DVELAS is an initiative involving the recovery of used sails for their transformation, applied to the design and production of contemporary furniture and projects. DVELAS is fuelled by a passion for the sea and navigation, and the designs are inspired by the rigging techniques of sailing boats. DVELAS design and produce furniture, re-using the sails and making them with the manufacturing techniques used by professional sail makers. The designs are based on the qualities of the sails and on their rigging techniques. They always have a conceptual component that evokes their origin, where tension, equilibrium, versatility or the work of the materials are important terms.
