"The creative process begins with a treasure hunt in the heaps of scrap metal within industrial environments. These spaces become gold mines of piled-up aluminum pieces, some of which are selected for their distinct aesthetic qualities and background narratives. We seek to highlight these intrinsic characteristics by designing unique objects with minimal intervention."
"A single square extrusion divided into four sections makes up the bench. Three pieces serve as legs, and the other one recut symmetrically, creates the seat. The assembly, composed of three threaded rods and six nuts, is minimal and invisible."
I'm really digging how just two lengthwise cuts turns the square extrusion into a bench surface, with the new T-shaped cross-section providing both structure and attachment point. BD has really made the most out of very little.
