The Straw-k is an innovative process where plastic drinking straws are melted together on the surface to create a very structural homogeneous material with strong aesthetic qualities and surprising interaction with light. The process is high-tech and artisanal at the same time. Indeed, every piece is modeled in 3D and the molds are manufactured with lasercut wood and CNC milled foam. However, each piece is unique, being filled and melted by hand. The process is as important as the result because it represents our statement as artists, designers and architects.
"Today we should use new technologies to manufacture our ideas and still keep the singularity of the craftsman work. Even though people are used to buy the same things in their daily life, they are always seeking for something different, original, personal. Our art pieces are a mix of inspirations from our social lives, our favorite alive or fictive figures, humor and caricature, etc. Most of all they are created to make people happy!"
