Luminous Accents

Portfolio Map-34.png

Luminous Accents is a flowerpot made with materials that are usually used in building construction. The project was driven by the curiosity to explore the formal possibilities of materials like concrete and plaster to make sensible everyday objects.

 

The texture of a soft and delicate knit creates contrast and changes the perception of concrete as a hard and rigid material. Moreover, due to fluorescent pigments, at night the flower pots become illumination objects.

Process

For this project, my teammate and I made a prototype with a piece of turned wood and two patterns of knit. Out of the prototype, we created a silicone cast and produced a set of 20 flowerpots.
