FORM MATTERS is a material exploration in how the same material that is used to create large architectural structures can also be used to construct smaller wearable pieces.
The simple geometric forms remind of pre-cast concrete components used in infrastructure construction (concrete pipes and culverts). This industrial reference is however challenged by the concrete elements downscaled to a human proportion, with section thickness reduced to the structural minimum. The forms are not continuous. In contradiction to the material’s best known properties the cantilevered plane creates a subtle tension, expressed as a delicate but deliberate cut. Brushed brass plate completes the geometric forms, with the smooth homogeneous surface juxtaposed against the irregular cast concrete surface.
These wearable piece of architecture doubles-up as maquettes for a larger installation or building, but when worn on the human body, the function becomes apparent.
