The Pressure Vase Chrome 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. This piece of design is showing a really good balance between creativity and technicity.
This Pressure Vase Chrome is made of a steel tube that is pressed under extreme pressure. Moreover, exposing the tube to up to 45 metric tons of pressure makes it yield and beautiful some folds appear at its base, making the normally hard and cold material looks like soft and fragile. Finally, the folds do not only change the appearance of the metal but also hold in the bottom disc, giving the tube it functions as a vase.
Each vase is unique. Vases are totally waterproof thanks to the inside in abcite coating.
