Leather like Wood Multifunctional containers by Elena Tarabakina

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Leather like Wood

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional containers

INSPIRATION:
Inspiration were found in aesthetic of modern architecture and influenced by Japanese philosophy. Clear geometric shapes allow to showcase the beauty of material. Yet philosophical approach to the material refers the collection to the ascetic of Japanese mind set. The very special influence on the collection were made by contemporary art and sculptures of Peter Alexander and Larry Bell, in particular their cubic sculptures. It could be seen through the visual language of the collection. The special consonance with modern architecture had been achieved by the sustainable approach to the material. As eco-friendly materials (especially indoor) and energy efficient approach are widely applied in architecture engineering.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Material Leather like Wood is innovative and beneficial for manufacture in terms of cost and sustainability. Its main principal is reusing leather leftovers. My background is leather goods manufacture and I have faced a lot of waste material during the process. For example a small footwear factory producing on the average 1500 pair of shoes annually every month has a box with a volume of 1,5 cubic metre full with leather offcuts and splits. The developed method allows to bring material back to the industry. This method was tested out to produce multifunctional containers.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The interaction with the audience (owner) occurs on emotional level mainly. Each element of collection aims to remind of the ambiguous nature of the material world. Minimalistic nature of objects should encourage to visual meditation and mind harmony. Though by their purpose they are multifunctional cubes a box, container and a bottle.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
2015-2016 London College of Fashion London, Golden Lane

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The main material ‘Leather like wood’- composite material, includes leather offcuts and bounding material (resin or bio resin or glue or gelatine depends on the final required purpose), acrylic, resin, Corian, copper. Techniques: 3D modelling, 3D printing, inlaying, CNC milling, casting, electroplating.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
On the average dimentions are up to Width 150 mm Depth 80 mm Height 200 mm

TAGS:
Sustainability, leather, accessory, design, contemporary, art, home accessory, interior, materials

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Collection explores the controversial nature of materials and their value. What are the principals of material evaluation. Why the same material is precious at one point and treated as a refuse at another? These questions helped me to take a look into a waste material from another angle. By combining traditional knowledge with modern technology I have created a collection with luxurious appearance yet made of refuse.

CHALLENGE:
It was a challenge to find a right treatment technique to the new material. As well to prove that both technology and implementation are possible to fit in the manufacture process, basically that it is viable.
