Presented by kwodrent for FARM, making something is a collection of objects and tableware centred around the idea of make / play / use. Inspired by the kwodrent series where each piece of work is a formal study and exploration of geometry, construction, and material, making something transposes the design-and-make process from the designer to the end user. By doing so, it fosters a new dialogue between the object and its user/maker. making something is an attempt to bring out the poetics and sensuality in the transient nature of composition and form-making.
For this installation, kwodrent is showcasing two ranges of compositions in laser-cut stainless steel - Poppy and Meander. The series of cuts deconstructs the sheet metal to produce an organic and highly malleable property that is akin to textile while retaining its rigidity and strength.
