We designed and built the tables and white shelf inserts for the Exhibit.
Linearflow Form exercises. The exercise was to bend pieces of wood or metal in a way that optimizes the fairness and flow of the form.
Solidflow Form exercise. Make a 4"x4"x18" block of wood. Using a band saw cut a contour on the top face, reattach pieces, cut another contour from the side face of the block. Resultant form remains.
Hand tools were made after the Solidflow form exercise. The hand tool was to be a kitchen Hand tool that either scooped or scrapped.
Rotoform Exercise. Make a 4"x4"x18" block of wood. Use the lathe to make a curve in the block. Keeping fairness and flow in mind, cut the curved piece, rotate, and reattach. This exercise led into the making of the Juicer.
Planarflow Form exercise. Heat a flat piece of polystyrene, reshape, then cut to enhance fairness and flow within the piece. The platters were made by using the lessons we learned from the Planarflow Form exercise and translating them into a product that can hold or present food.
Tectoform Exercise. Make a 2"x4"x18" block of wood. Make two intersecting cuts. Reattach keep in mind intersections, end conditions and orientation.
