Persuasion (2011)

Persuasion is an object that has been folded entirely into form using a single sheet of EchoPanel®. Structure is created through the repetitive ‘V-pleat’ folding pattern, rigidifying the material and allowing it to act as something more than an office pin-board. Reclaimed timber beams provide additional strength across the horizontal surface. These create a stark contrast between organic and artificial…traditional and non-traditional. The bespoke stainless steel hardware adds a degree of finesse, which is enhanced by the subtleties of the electric blue rivets.

At its most fundamental level, Persuasion shows what a material is capable of doing, rather than what it simply does.

Materials: EchoPanel®, Oregon, stainless steel, aluminium.
