Adi Zaffran (Israel): Furniture and Jewelry

Adi Zaffran Weisler is a young designer, a 4th year student at the Bezalel academy of art and design, Jerusalem. I found his pieces on dezeen, an online design magazine. Enjoy !



RAWtation

The aim of the project is to discover the fusion between the organic and the industrial.

As I was learning the industrial process of plastic rotational molding I discovered the potential for combining raw organic elements in the process. I created a method where the meeting point between the organic and the synthetic is made by the rotational molding process without the need for cold joints or complex adjustments. The manufacturing process uses pruned branches, trunks and foliage combined with plastic which creates the joints.

From the manufacturing process a new esthetic language is created out of basic shapes and raw material.

Rings

For this work, I collected spent bullets at a firing range and made jewelery out of them.
The rings that were created remove the bullet from its original function and they surprisingly turn into a bejeweled object and emphasize the beauty and aesthetics of the bullet when it is distanced from its surroundings. Every bullet retains memories and traces of the journey it underwent from the moment it was fired until it was picked up.

No Post

I cannot face making a post this week. Everything seems so miserable and pointless after the idiocy of last Thursday. I'll post about the concerts, the works-in-progress and the British Art Medals Society conference later in the week.See More
