In the series of functional objects entitled ‘BRUTALISTA’, the designer takes over the tool from the craftsman, more specifically, the handsaw.
One sheet of timber-based material and the availability of only one handsaw is ‘the brutal idea’ behind this project – One Sheet. One Saw. One Object.
The more restrictions, the greater the challenge
Limitations make it easier to make choices in the design process, but also challenge you to explore the possibilities to the fullest.
This approach has led to monumental functional objects, in which a preference for 'brutalist architecture' is clearly visible.
Ode to the saw
In the series of objects entitled ‘BRUTALISTA’, the designer takes over the tool from the craftsman. The limited possibilities of the handsaw determine not only the shape of the object, but also the texture of the surface. The saw shows its commitment as we rarely or never see it in the craft; rough and unpolished in its fairest form.
