When we visit design exhibitions or design fairs, we always see things that surprise us. There are very good projects done by students and professionals, but also, as a student I am, I always observe the work done at the university where I study. Earlier this year the metal workshop had a lot of movement. Many students working, giving shape to the pieces of their projects. Among metal debris and workshop tools I’m looking at people projects, and suddenly i keep an eye on a steel tube structure. You get closer, you see the welds, you look how problems have been resolved, and simply, you admire the work done.
This is the case of Christoph Born, a student at the University of Art and Design Burg Giebichenstein of Halle. His work is professional, delicate and talented. It’s a real luxury to have seen the construction process and see the work done in detail. Christoph Born’s project consists on Att Vanda table, Att Sitta chair and Att Lysa lamp.
Christoph Born’s work is professional, delicate and talented.
The table Att Vända is the symbiosis of metal and wood in different variations. The metal frame conjoined in the wooden sticks carries a reversible worktop. Its hard and soft surface creates space for different usages.
With Att Sitta a delicate chair has arisen in its simplicity combining the two materials metal and wood. At the connection points the bluff matt painted metal embraces the bleached wooden sticks.
The pendant lamp Att Lysa creates a light strip in its straightforwardness, which is generated by an open longitudinal cut within the light body. with bearings at the connection points a direct or indirect light can be created by rotation.
