Mechanic constructions | SHADE XL
hand cut, patinated and polished brass | 76 x 76 x 167 cm | 2016
A collection that draws inspiration from the model construction method Meccano, loved by children. In creating a series of hand-cut elements, which function as construction pieces, Joost ensures everything has both a functional and structural value. The collection shows an improvised and spontaneous method of building that feels reminiscent of the structures one discovers in a physical and natural way of constructing. Joost continually added new elements to satisfy the build of each object, giving each piece a feeling of a natural and evolving physical growth.
