Mocoloco shows the latest work of Joost van Bleiswijk, whose technique of designing and assembling furniture and other objects out of sheets of metal takes flatpack to a new extreme. You are in serious trouble if you lose the instructions.
The designer has opened a studio with Kiki van Eijk that is full of 3D versions of hourglasses, candlesticks and more.
We have previously shown the laborious process of assembly, and the complexity of the design:
From archetypical drawings I create the objects as flat components by computer. The method of sliding different elements into one and other, and how to draw the exact technical drawings, is now like clay for me....All pieces are hand-finished after laser-cutting."
Joost van Bleiswijk's technique doesn't only work in metal; it was used to design and build these cardboard offices.
