We, YOY, have several design themes and one of them is ‘fictionality’.
Firstly, we thought of the function of clothes and decided to focus on clothes as a cover. So we started thinking about generating fiction with the cover of something and surface of Canvas. Then the idea came to our mind: a cylindrical stool covered in Canvas but with the texture of tree bark. We thought it should look like a trunk. So we named it TRUNK.
To make it, we produced a mould of bark texture by 3D scanning a real trunk. By pressing the textile within the mould we added the texture to Kvadrat’s Canvas. We used the trunk of an alder tree because it’s bark has a nice, clear texture. We made three sizes of prototypes for the exhibition.
