Bad Dog !
you’re so cliché.
i dislike poodles.
it’s not important.
the shape fits my hands / i can feel the cuts / a butchers cut / i take it apart / thirteen pieces / interesting objects / organic shapes meeting straight cuts / male- and female-forms appear / mingle them / one piece / the function dissapears
form is all I have left
the product is based on one specific piece.
it’s an organic shape beautifully cut off.
the form suggests something is missing.
it belongs somewhere.
it reminds me of a japanese wooden shoe.
a shoe that can be altered to personal specifications.
able to constantly change the pieces.
creating variation in heights, materials and systems.

Based on the general theme “Le Corbusier and Other Stories” we investigated a variety of subjects related to the content presented at this summers Corbusier Art and Architecture exhibit at NAi, Rotterdam. Research material was edited down to A4 sized guided tours/portals into these subject matters. All subjects presented in this list were available as hard copy prints at the Research Folder Archive at the library of the academy from November 2007 until January 2013 at which date we decided to have them only available as part of the online Designblog archive:
Primitivism, Le Poème de l’Angle Droit, Corbusier’s Christmas Gift, La Chapel de Notre Dame, Amedee Ozenfant, Corbusier in Istanbul, Varese’s Poème Electronique, The Candigarth Project, Modular, Language of Organic Form, Corbusier and Politics, The Bric, Ferdinand Léger, The Brasilia Project, Sandberg’s Experimenta Typografica 11, Koolhaas/Lagos, Nature Design Zurich, Constant’s New Babylon, Rietveld’s Academies, The Chaisse Longue
