Vannfall








Vannfall provides a peek into the hidden relation between the intention of a prototyping process and the result of the mass-produced goods.

The initial master model of a water jug - hemp strings covered in plaster ─ was made by hands. Its incomplete textures were fully scanned into three-dimensional data, which is then used to make the metal tooling for the following blown glass and injection molding. All the intuitive, haptic decisions were captured from the initial material to the final glass work.

Vannfall將原型製作過程當中不完美的魅力,保留進量產商品之中,映照出兩者間的相互關係。

產品最初的原型由手工製作,頗具實驗性:首先,將金屬線凹折出框架、由麻繩纏繞、並塗上水溶性纖維土。此模型成品的手感形狀和表面紋理,接著在專門的工作室裡以3D相機進行掃描,並對轉出的數據進行分析和優化,用於製作出玻璃成型的金屬模具。最後,材料轉換為玻璃,採用吹製玻璃和注塑相結合的方式製造,而過程當中所有直觀的、觸感的思考痕跡,皆被捕捉下,以工業化製程量化。
