“I want to explore learning as a design approach”
Exploring parallels between the basketry technique
of coiling and 3D printing. The result is an
archive of diverse artefacts ranging from samples
and experiments to functional objects — a testimony
to the value of design as a collaborative process.
Usually designers only seek craft knowledge in
the production phase, and not during the research
beforehand. With ‘Crossing parallels’, Amandine
David involved craft masters right from the start to
discover extra creative opportunities.
By working together with master basket weaver Esmé Hofman
and 3D-printing artisan Joris van Tubergen, the
value of the work goes beyond a final object, sharing
the failures and innovations happening at every
stage of the process.
