MOS Designer Residency competition.

I’m honoured to announce that I’m selected with my “studio Tim Vanlier” as 1 of the 6 designers for the “MOS Designer Residency competition” to participate to the Designer Residency in Montalcino, Tuscany.
I will have the opportunity to develop my own design research in collaboration with an Italian manufacturer during a one month intensive stay in residence from April 18 to May 14, 2016.

I came in contact with metal for the first time during my encounter with adult cutlery. The way too big spoon was cold and hard. Characteristics of metal how I still experience them. It is this characteristics that enables the use of metal for the industry. During my research into metal, I was inspired by the layering of the mining industry. Where the existence of metal begins as iron ore.
