Could a material solely form the content of a design without following any particular function or referencing to a subjective concept? If we consider the capitals of ancient Greek’s architecture in triple orders of (Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian) as stone classical sample works that, despite sculptures and other artifacts, are formed based on design (as perceived today) and a preplanned plan; the fact that the mentioned works were considered to have a masculine and feminine identity while having autonomy and being abstract is notable. The proportions, direct lines or curves, and form’s details are involved in forming such a character and it seems where even the object’s function does not determine the form, gender is one of the first properties of stone structures that is based on design.
Sinuosa’s design is a practical and subjective experience to apply the proportions and the details that questions the certainty of this planar quality and symbolically showcases this uncertainty in a modern stone artifact. On the one hand, this work owes its existence to the classical history of stone design, and on the other hand, it’s against it. The form of Sinuosa’s outer shell is completely uniform and is resulted from the conformity of two opposite patterns: first, a fluid, flexible and asymmetrical pattern with variable curved sections, and second, a prism with central symmetry and similar square sections with internal angles of 90 degrees. By overlapping these two layers, we achieve a hybrid form that could not be broken down into the opposing elements of its constituent and, while being random, is precisely a function of the logic of its environmental vectors.
Communication with Audiences
Are you an art collector, or interested in unique concept products?
In Pratic [LAB] we fabricate prototypes of each final product in small quantities and limited time. This pilot production is a part of the R&D process of product design and optimization. Most of this process is done by designers. Due to the experience-oriented process and the time, physical and mental strength used, the product made will be more vulnerable than products optimized for industrial production. Customers of these products are generally interested in the artistic and aesthetic aspects of product design or creativity and innovative ideas presented in them. It is possible to order these concept products, provided with Pratic™ exclusive packaging, and certificate of authenticity, during the inventory period, through Pratic [Store], and other linked concept stores. Many products will no longer be produced after they’re sold out or will be handed over to the producers as an industrial plan with changes.
