Minus 13, Desk Desk by Raza Ali Dada

Home > Winners > #36002


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Minus 13, Desk

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Desk

INSPIRATION:
By minimalism - that is integral to my attitude towards life today, where we are subjected to an overdose of information and image. Such an excess causes distraction from investigative and inspirational elements of objects in our everyday lives.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The design under review serves an honest purpose that in its simplest for is about providing a surface. The need being for 2 functions is expressed in the division created by one leg or support. To maximise the intent all other legs are removed to focus on a singular element and purpose . The intent and purpose have given rise to the geometry and minimal form of this object.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It does not transform, but actually takes an overall form once being used as a desk and is eventually transformed when the surface is used for various tasks. It is not meant to lose form but remain simple and honest. Its performance is not the forte but its form and its relationship to why this form came about for the user is important.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Lahore, Pakistan. 2 weeks including design and production

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Basic technology - MDF, Glass

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
1524 mm x 609 mm x 762 mm; MDF with adhesive construction; Duco paint finish, Matte Lacquer, Tempered glass with Stainless Steel hardware, PVC clips.

TAGS:
Minimal, Desk, Contemporary, color, planar, balance

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The desk is part of a journey where I am discovering the joys of using one coherent concept with minimal interference for each object that is produced. The research thus follows the mission to simplify and hopefully satisfy needs that we sometimes only realise after we encounter an object. The research is through creation of various objects and then taking a pause to look back at them as part of a whole and to understand their coherence under the context of a minimal but meaningful intervention into our daily lives.

CHALLENGE:
The Challenge is to understand self motivated goals and the response and reaction of others or users when encountering the objects in question. The focus cannot be compromised and sometimes limits of time and budget are constraints. The challenge is also to extract creative solution out of these constraints and turn them into positive elements of design. The hardest part is always to satisfy someone who in particular has demanded a custom object.

NAME:
Minus

PROFILE:
Minus is a simple idea that responds to excess and attempts to simplify solutions so they are solely dedicated to a purpose that may be of inquiry or investigation while in pursuit of function. Many creative ideas come about in the studio everyday, and many disappear as one continues to pursue an academic or professional career. Having and being involved with an idea is but natural, but having to turn it into an object is getting one step closer. To what? We need not know. This subtraction of an idea taken away by physical form is also central to Minus. What is taken away must be essential and honest while hopefully setting the stage for the next subtraction to take place. Works: There are a number of objects that have been created as studies aimed to explore various aspects of object design. They range from weight, to spatial phantoms or may even explore appropriation through existing or found objects serving well in some other spheres.
