GOING WITH THE GRAIN: design an object using sustainable wood

Competition Details


by Dominique Cheng

The concept for the wood object takes as its starting point the idea of "grain" as it pertains to woodworking techniques - that is, the manner in which the wood is produced and processed - and attempts to reinterpret it as tactile patterning. In this case, the pattern is an intricate saw-tooth that populates the object's surface. Half lap joints are used as a means of assembly.
