Description:

I mostly use materials like Stainless steel, Wood and Rubber. The processes I use are somewhat inspired by pre industrial methods, elaborating in the concept of two-dimensional cuts that with creases and folds will become 3D objects.

Almost all of my designs are in a sense unique and different from each other since the technique I use makes almost impossible to come up with two identical pieces.

I shape the stainless steel by applying pressure and folds, I use wood and rubber to hold the tension that the steel generates, and in this way the object defines itself.

The rubber pieces I cut them by shaping razor sharp steel rules and applying pressure against the material, most of the tooling and techniques have been developed by me to fit each particular designing need.
