Sediment Objects

The concept of Sediment Furniture is based on the natural sedimentation in layers of material over time.

 

By emulating nature’s additive processes, inclusions and randomly patterned shapes, the notion of natural beauty is explored.

 

Like a scientist taking earth samples or an archeologist searching for an insight into the past, Ruben tries to induce the surprise of revealing a hidden treasure and show the time that went into creating the volume of material.

 

This process is aimed at finding new solutions for designing materials and objects, which have the sense of time and materiality of natural resources but are manmade.
