The Pressure Metal Bench is part of the pressure series, in which Tim Teven uses material deformation under extreme pressure as a tool to design. The deformation of metal by exerting pressure leads to exciting technical details, as well as new optical and haptic qualities.
The Pressure Metal Bench is made of an aluminum sheet into which a pattern is pressed. First, the material is hardened, on the other hand, the normally cold and stiff aluminum takes on an unexpectedly soft and pleasant appearance. Moreover, this technique makes it possible to produce lightweight seating furniture from a 2 mm thick metal sheet. Only one technical modification to the material gives it new structural properties as well as a new appearance, thanks to a technique developed with the self-modified hydraulic press in the studio. Tim Teven is cleverly taking over an industrial technique back to handcrafting.
Each piece is unique.
