My final project in Bezalel.
Guide: Haim Parnas.
In Mary Shelley's famous story, Dr. Frankenstein wanted to understand the essence of life and death. For that purpose, he connected body parts together, breathed life into them, and created a new person - recycled and strange.
In this project I tried to do something similar: I collected scraps of wood that had been cruelly sawed into boards, put them together, and tried to resurrect them - but as with Frankenstein, into a different, strange life.
The feeling I tried to infuse into the furniture was of "object-friends" - inanimate objects with an animate presence.
In the work process, I tried to remain focused on the physical and the personal while staying close to the material.
Measurements: ladder - 180 cm, chair - 70 cm, bench - 150 cm
Materials: wood scraps
The project was exhibited at the Milan Design Week 2011.
