“虚构的侵蚀”由三个系列构成,其设计灵感源于一种未来的场景:由于环境的原因,人类机器被禁止使用。该系列是设计师对“如何将自然事物的形成过程转化为家居设计方法”这一问题不断探索的结果。

“我将自己的作品视为一种家具与雕塑的结合。我希望它们可以被当做家具来使用,但同时又不拘泥于家具的形式。地质学和侵蚀现象是我灵感的主要来源。”瑞典设计师Kajsa Melchior如此解释:“该系列的作品都是由沙子制成的,它们通过不同的外力作用呈现出不同的样貌,例如风和水,这些自然界的力量,亦或是由我的身体带来的压力。”

Fictive Erosion consists of three collections which all derives from a future scenario where human machines are forbidden due to environmental issues. The collections are speculative results of an ongoing investigation of how to adapt formation processes in nature into design methods in furniture design.

I see my work as hybrids between furniture and sculptures. I want them to be used as furniture, but at the same time I don’t want the expectations from furniture to limit the form too much. Geology and erosion are great inspirations for my work. The objects in my new collection are made from sand, exposed by various forces. Natural forces such as wind and water -or both, but also pressure caused by my own body.

每件家具先由沙子进行塑形,呈现出独一无二的造型和肌理,然后再用雪花石膏将其制成成品,最终形成一种罕有的类似于石头的质感。设计师在这一过程中找到了“偶然性”与“可控性”之间的有趣平衡。为了调整造型,设计师需要充分倾听和了解沙子的物理性质,同时感知水、风以及自己身体的运动规律。与材料之间的交流能够增加设计师对“原因”和“结果”的理解,这也从某种层面上反映了人类不断增长的消费习惯与全球气候变化之间的因果关系。

Each sculpture is originally formed in sand before it is developed by Alabaster. This process makes every original unique and the sand leaves texture onto the Alabaster which together creates a rare stone-like material. By working with this technique, I find an interesting balance between chance and control. In order to regulate the shapes, I need to listen to, and to understand the sand’s physical properties as well as the water’s, wind’s and the forms and movement from my own body. I find this exchange between me and the material meaningful in order to increase knowledge about cause and effect, a topic I find relevant for the growing conversation of global changes caused by our constantly increasing consumption habits.

这一关于“偶然性”与“可控性”的主题在雕塑中以一种暧昧的方式被表达出来,这是设计师对奇妙且持续变化的自然不断探索的成果。设计师希望通过其作品来表达她对地球的好奇——作为我们共同生活的家园,它理应得到我们更多的理解。

The topic of chance and control, together with the ambiguous expression in the final sculptures is a result of my interest in nature and it’s amazing, eternally ongoing processes. With my work I wish to spread curiosity for the globe. The globe as the engine we live from and with advantage should know more about.
