learning from … Patrick Jouin

This project is about a tape dispenser inspired by my favorite designer Patrick Jouin. The task was to make a tape-dispenser in the style or in terms of our favorite designer. The material or the possibilities of manufacturing inspire Patrick Jouin. I choose plastic deformation. The tape-dispenser should look like it is hidden under a piece of fabric. I was inspired by the „solid series“ of Patrick Jouin, where he created a chair by laying pieces of fabric over a chair and another project called „gulp“ where a carpet melts into a table. To construct the model I chose oriol, polyurethane foam. This functioned as the substructure to mould polystyrene. The white color makes the tape dispenser look like it melts into the desk. Other materials like transparent plastic, wood-veneer, ceramics or plastics are also possible.
