My idea is to weld and cut schedule 40 steel ‘T’ shapes and pipes into a dynamic furniture design. First we cut them, weld and layout along spiraling lines. The white area is to remain. The black areas are to be cut abd removed. This is a sculptural experiment!
We have completed 4 coffee/cocktail tables bases in wood or mdf with glass tops – these are modern, abstract shapes inspired by baroque architecture, geometry, DNA and organic forms. We are continuing with modern furniture design and excited about new ideas coming soon!
The Torus or donut shape is a continuing source of inspiration. The parameters with these models are: the number of cuts, offset of pieces from center, tilt of the pieces, minor diameter and thickness.
This torus or donut shape sculpture has been modeled and is being 3d printed in plastic and stainless steel as a study. Three equally opposing helical cuts at 120 degrees. Also shown are studies at 30 degree incremental twists along the z axis.
