Mleiha Bowl Dinning Tray by By Spring

Home > Winners > #69130


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Mleiha Bowl

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Dinning Tray

INSPIRATION:
The proposed design looks at the landscape of the desert of Mleiha (UAE), where the ancient country of Magan (2,500 B.C.) settled down finding shelter from the harsh environment on the East side of Jebel Mleiha (Fossil Rock), protected from the sand dunes to create the fertile oasis of Al Madam. The wooden tray replicates the topography of the sand dunes, accommodating several concavities to have dates or nuts.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Maleiha dates tray is a unique tray or bowl for dates and nuts. Sculptural expressive, this 100% hand-made object touches the table in only three points of contact, making it into a light element. The wood used for its fabrication (meranti) reinforces its texture and the idea of topography as a containing element.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The natural materials used for its design makes it a highly tactile object, where the scent and texture and the tray can be experienced through its sensual topography

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The tray was designed on site, from scrap. Asking the material: "what do you want to be? How do you prefer to be shaped?"

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The tray is made by hand, grinding and sanding a single piece of scrap wood, meranti in this case. The grain and texture of the wood is preserved and enhanced using natural mineral oil plus the last coat of natural wax.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
45 x 45 x 8 cm.

TAGS:
tray, dates, nuts, homeware, bowl, kitchenware

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The proposed design looks at the landscape of the desert of Mleiha, where the ancient country of Magan (2,500 B.C.) settled down finding shelter in the East side of Jebel Mleiha (Fossil Rock), protected from the sand dunes to create Al Madam oasis. Sculptural expressive, this 100% hand-made object touches the table in only three points of contact, making it into a light element. The wood used for its fabrication (meranti) reinforces its texture and the idea of topography as a containing element.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge, in this case, was to work without a pre-conceived idea, letting the material speak and suggest its shape and function.

PROFILE:
By Spring is a design bureau investigates the limits between object and architecture, interior design and public space through different research methodologies linked with academic scholarship and private commissions in Europe and the Middle East. By Spring is composed by Enrique Pujana, Juan Bueno and Juan Roldan, being established in 2018 as a collective design bureau, exploring industrial design as a mean for researching creativity and fabrication processes. Our design inspiration is life in general. But in a very specific manner, the way we see the world, the way we see its flaws and the way we insist in enhancing and improving our interaction with our environment. We tend to work with a limited materials palette like stainless steel, anodized aluminum, wood and a very strict amount of finishes. The first decision on the materiality of an object depends on the structural needs of its function, after that it's the material itself who drives the process. We also have in mind the means of production, how the material can be manipulated, being true with what it represents: its physical characteristics and aesthetical qualities.
