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.

My attention immediately went to the furniture of course. Love it, furniture is creative, interesting use of different textures. I just looked at the ring interesting. Glen is at the university preparing for fall semester I'll show him later. Marie

Invisible:VisAble Exhibition

Art can be a way to heal. Many artists privately face invisible medical and mental illness challenges that others are unaware of because they look, and act, absolutely normal. Some artists creatively tap into these challenges and give voice to them through a variety of mediums and styles. Invisible:VisAble, curated by artist Leisa Rich, is an art exhibition that features several artists whose art works are informed by their challenges. It is to be held in Atlanta in April, 2015 at Mason Fine…See More
