The Importance of the Obvious by Matthias Borowski
Updated: Jan 29
Every material has a variety of qualities, some of which are entirely unique. The qualities of the materials chosen by the designer will have an impact on the design process. But just how much of an impact?
The Importance of the Obvious by Matthias Borowski looks at the dormant potential of materials, and how it could be put together to design. “First I’ve taken a close look at food, which, although itself a material, requires entirely different and often unique or experimental preparation methods. I’ve also investigated the role of the chef. Both were used as a source of inspiration, and also as a basis for my analysis. Attracted by the material characteristics of candies, I translated their colors, textures, layering, and expressions into designs,” says Borowski.
