AL2

Manufacturer: KARAKTER

Year: 2021

AL2 consists of vases and lamps in Aluminium. Made for the annual Snedkernes Efterårsudstilling.

Each item has four sides, two sides appear anodized, the opposite sufaces are sanded and mirrorpolished. The objects mirrors its surroundings and the others objects, depending on how they are arranged.

One of the things I like the most about the project is that although it must be categorized as industrial design, it also has an element of craftsmanship. The edges of the mirrorpolished surfaces bend slightly, which creates a slight distortion and reveals that it is not only machines but also hands that have created the items.

AL is the symbol for Aluminium in the Periodic Table.
