Aestus Vase by Oliver David Krieg

Home > Winners > #70756


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Aestus

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Vase

INSPIRATION:
Although I have been engaged with wood and digital technologies for almost ten years in academia, I have always been fascinated by the relationship between the scientific, almost purely mathematical approach of robotic fabrication, and the aesthetics of the material that is directly affected by this process. In my opinion, the tension between the digital and physical - the method and the result - is most prevalent in wood and I just recently set out to explore these potentials.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Aestus is a series of stratified wooden vases exploring a new synthesis of traditional materials and modern technology. Carved from hundreds of layers of wood by an industrial robot, the vases capture the fluidity of the machine's movements in the depth of the wooden texture. Aestus is both a story of material exploration and of technical prowess. Each of the four vases is an expression of the aesthetics of a modern manufacturing process, as well as a statement for contemporary wood design.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Aestus is meant to be displayed in tandem or as a conversation piece. The high resolution of details on the vase works best with a calm and clean background. The expressive nature of the design requires space and accessibility from preferably all sides. Whether in hotel lobbies, restaurants or at home, the vases attract attention and elevate the space's refined material qualities.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started as an exploration into design, material and fabrication in 2012. Although being a passion project for many years, it turned into a more serious product development in 2017. After several months of prototyping and documenting, the vases were released under the then newly founded design label odk.design in summer 2018.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Each piece is re-constituted from layers of beech plywood before being formed by the bespoke kinematics of a 7-axis industrial robot, milling grooves into the material. Each vase in the series is functional and highly durable. A brushed stainless steel inset marks the lip of the vase and serves as a durable water repository, which ends at the bottom of the vase as a setback platform. A wax finish serves as a natural protection to the wood.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Aestus is a series of four vases: Size XS: 32 cm, 5 Kg Size S: 46 cm, 7 Kg Size M: 81 cm, 14 Kg Size L: 110 cm, 19 Kg

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The goal of this project is to explore, exhibit, and educate about the relationship between material and making . It is meant to raise awareness about the properties of materials and about the possibilities, efforts, and constraints of manufacturing technologies. Methods and tools ranging from parametric design as well as modern manufacturing techniques were employed during the development. In preliminary studies the possibilities of an industrial robot and CNC milling tools were explored and related to the design outcome.

CHALLENGE:
Pushing the limits of 3D milling, in both tool path design and tooling complexity, requires a digital simulation tool in order to explore the design space of the industrial robot. As the width of the grooves varies depending on the milling feed direction in relation to the tool's rotation, both virtual and physical prototypes were required to control both the design and the machine. Ultimately, the most challenging part was to develop a product that can be produced efficiently and with a consistent quality.

NAME:
odk.design

PROFILE:
odk.design seeks to celebrate the dynamic relationship between material and machine, and to explore the forces of formation in robotic fabrication. It was founded by German architecture and design researcher Oliver David Krieg in 2018. Building on almost ten years of experience in digital manufacturing of complex wood structures, odk.design seeks to express the forces of formation in robotic fabrication, and to explore the dynamics of human, material and machine.
