as one of the 'four designers of the future' at design miami/ basel 2008, kram/weisshaar (clemens weisshaar
& reed kram) presented new work inside the markthalle basel. the designers were commissioned by design miami/
to create new works using concrete and wool and document the creative process of the work with a short video.
VENDOME' is body of work takes a precondition of endless transformation as its point of departure.
the idea is to parametrically generate a family of objects with different typologies including stools,
pedestals and tables of different heights'.
'the 'VENDOME SERIES' is developed within and documented by a piece of software that generates
an infinite number of proposals within a defined framework while flexibly reacting to changing parameters
(as e.g. the height, width or depth of the object). the proposals are then singled out and fine-tuned by the
designers using the software. by the press of a button a selected geometry can be processed and the
geometry for the casting mould is generated and passed on to numerically controlled machines.
by engaging custom programmed code the potential of an industrial process is exploited to produce one-off
copies - the final pieces are rotationally moulded using coloured self compacting fibre reinforced concrete.
the 'VENDOME SERIES' consists of 99 objects in total'.
