That Piece of Time: a coffee table
The prism is a medium that represents/visualizes pieces of time.

The prism plays an optical illusion with the graphic underneath the table, which appears and disappears according to vantage point, standing for the ungraspable aspect of time.

Master degree project
department of Interior Architecture and Furniture Design
Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Sweden

general description-
Consider time as a continuation of ‘now’s. Not a single one is the same.
So consistent and everlasting, one can easily forget its weight, take it for granted.
One meets miracles at every single ‘now’, although some are forgotten and only some remain.
These objects grasp time from the sunlight and shed unexpected, unrepeatable moments for you to cherish.
It unveils pieces of time through the meetings between light and light-refracting materials.

object 01
title- That Piece of Time: a coffee table
This low coffee table consists of two levels of different height, with a glass prism filling in the gap between the tops.
The sunlight circulates around the object, and when it touches the glass in the right way, it shall break down into a rainbow that you might meet.
Material- walnut solid wood, glass

object 02
title- That Piece of Time: a vase
Some ordinary moments are enlightened by sorrowful backgrounds. Visualizing this, the vase is stabbed by its own holder, and is hung in the air.
As the expected role to a vase is to hold flowers in water, this vase is to create its own blossoms in time with the collaboration with the sun.
The predicted becomes memorable.
Material- acrylic glass, stainless steel, granite

background story-
Within the intention of awakening the appreciation of unconsciously forgotten elements of everyday life, ‘time’ has been the focal point of the story.
It is a collaborative work with the sun, since the circulation of the sun is the actual body of time.
The designer chose to work with spectrum; it shows what is embedded inside daylight and reveals its beauty.
Also as an advantage of working with the nature, it reinforces the rareness and unexpectedness, which are the keys to enhancing the appreciation and joy.

The project was shown at Konstfack Degree Show 2012,
is on the way to DMY Berlin as a collective of Konstfack graduates (June 6-10),
and will show at Tent London during London Design Festival in September.
