The Dough Shelf by Jie Luo

Home > Winners > #53234


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Dough

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Shelf

INSPIRATION:
it all began with an accident encounter of a galvanized iron sheet shop. Even though the galvanized iron sheet is a cheap, low-class industry material, and mostly used for containers and restaurant chimney, I was still fascinated by it, and keen on using it in furniture design and explore new possibilities within the material.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
this project grows on the root of a cheap industry material called galvanized iron sheet. The unique way of adapting the flexibility and strength within the material creates a piece of work that demonstrate the essential relationship between material and structure. Meanwhile, when the "soft" wood becomes "strong" structure, and the "hard" metal turns into "flexible" space, the break-through of material stereotype also can be found within the design.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
unlike normal shelf, the Dough suggests users to put books and things more randomly.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
the project started in early November 2016 in Chengdu, China and finished in late November 2016 in Beijing, China.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
hand-crafting galvanized iron sheet into shape; using wood joint and glue to form wood structure.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
the shelf "Dough" is 1340 mm tall, 790 mm wide, and 310 mm deep. Using two layers of 0.5 mm thick galvanized iron sheet and 35 mm square wood to build.

TAGS:
shelf, book shelf, furniture design, galvanized iron sheet, material based furniture design

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
learning the galvanized iron sheet specification from the shop owner, and according to his explanation, try to find material's strength, weakness and unique feature. There's no function of the furniture to be considered in the first place, it's all coming together while the project proceeding.

CHALLENGE:
to determine the folding way of the sheet, the material specification and the order of the building process between metal and wood.
