Beyond Functionality





"Beyond Functionality" realizado por la diseñadora industrial Hila Shilon (Israel). Ha diseñado tres modelos de silla que centran su atención en zonas que normalmente pasan inadvertidas en los objetos cotidianos. Su propósito es poner a prueba los límites entre el orden y el caos, función y estética, común y lo extraño. El principal elemento ha sido los tornillos de gran longitud que van enroscados en la madera uniendo ambas partes. Ver más dentro del post;
