RAWtation by AdiZaffranWeisler

Designed by AdiZaffranWeisler, RAWtation is a set of tables and stools made from combination of tree branches and trucks with plastic as it is moulding. The main intention of Weisler for this project was to experiment with the fusion between the organic and the industrial materials.
As told by the designer,in this method, the meeting point between the organic and the synthetic is made by the rotational molding process without the need for cold joints or complex adjustments. The manufacturing process uses pruned branches, trunks and foliage combined with plastic which creates the joints. A number of molds in basic geometric shapes were created to make it possible to insert trimmed foliage of various kinds. The polyethylene and the raw organic elements are inserted to the metal mold, which is then heated and cooled while rotating. The plastic forms along the inner side of the mold and firmly fastens together the organic elements, especially while cooling and shrinking. From the manufacturing process a new esthetic language is created out of basic shapes and raw material which results in creation of the unique shaped furniture pieces.
