BRASS AND CRAFTS

Vienna Design Week, 2011

“Passionswege” is the main event of the Vienna Design Week; it’s a design trail through the city featuring experimental, site-specific collaborations between designers and established Viennese businesses. This year we have been invited by VDW organization and paired with traditional Wiener Werkstätte lighting specialists Woka.   After being fascinated by the work of Woka brass artisans, we decided to project an homage to their craftsmanship and the shiny golden metal.  “Brass and Craft” is an installation consisting in a coat-hanger based system clothed in the brass pieces mixed to other materials.  The result are four different sculptures, each one composed by one wooden hanger and three layers which explore unusual combinations of brass with other materials like copper and fabric.
