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

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret. With…See More
