PET Bottles To The Oil Spill Rescue

A Picture Perfect photo of Barack Obama swimming with his daughter in Florida is not the answer to oil spills! It takes more than that to contain the damage and get the affected areas back to their feet. A moment of thought goes out to the Oil Fence here, which is made from recycled PET Plastic bottles, fitted with special rubber caps on both ends. The logic is to reuse the trashed bottles for a greater good like containing spills without adding burden to the environment. The color scheme of orange and yellow, sure makes it look bright and cheery against the black slick of oil!

Pewter Desk
28th June 2011, Porthluney Cove, Caerhays, Cornwall.
My largest pewter casting to date! I returned to my favourite beach at Caerhays on the south coast of Cornwall to produce a solid pewter desk using the same primitive form of sand-casting I experimented with whilst studying at the RCA. The date of the casting was scheduled for the 28th June as high tide coincided with sunrise and I knew I needed at least 6 hours to carve the mould and cast the pewter before the water table began to rise again. At 4:30am I began carving the negative of the desk into the sand using no more than a kitchen knife and a metal rod and by 10:30 the mould was ready for casting. We melted 180kg of pewter (92% tin, 2% copper, 6% antimony) in 30 stainless steel saucepans on 30 gas camping stoves. Myself and five assistants (including my dad), wearing leather welding gauntlets and safety goggles, began pouring the molten pewter into the sand mould one saucepan at a time in quick succession until the liquid pewter reached the brim of the mould. The pewter took over an hour to cool and solidify before I could begin to dig away the sand and excavate the the pewter desk, and between five of us we easily managed to lift the finished desk out from the sand. The natural texture of the sand appears on the legs and underside whilst the smooth seemingly molten surface of the pewter remains on the top surface of the desk.

Silla de bandas.


Der Bandstuhl ist Teil von Markus Bangerters Bachelorarbeit mit dem Titel Polyfine. Das Sitzmöbel wurde aus thermoplastischer Chemiefaser geformt, welche durch Zuführung von Hitze erstarrt und eine leicht elastische, aber stabile Struktur erhält. Die daraus resultierenden Möbel haben ein extrem geringes Gewicht und sind selbstverständlich alltagstauglich.

Weight Vases

What is a vase? How does it work?

Those were simple questions I asked myself for this historical object which
was created since Neolithic period.

I found that, all the vases in the world have a same basic principle to hold

There are 2 important parts which function differently. Top part (vase-mount),
has a duty to hold flower stem and base part, to hold water and also offer
a stability to the vase.

“Weight” brings a new perspective on a vase design by the separation of 2
different parts which support each other.

Water container made of concrete pile-up on a steel piece to give a stability
for holding flowers.

In the collection, there are 4 vases for different flower setting from single
flower to flowers panel.

Decha developed the project while studying at the ECAL ( University of Art
and Design Lausanne ) in 2011

From sweets wrapped in banana leaf impression of Thailand, that
material is close to the natural. Banana leaf like wrapped package dessert
in various form is the good demonstrate creativity of the Thai people since
the past. This concept has led to deployment of the banana leaf shows the
linear structure of the mantle to a personal feeling. In addition, more friendly
shape can be used. To experience the precision of work, it shows similar
with the same elaborate and in genious confection of Thailand in the past
to the present.
