Frozen Fluid

by SoomeenHahm Design

Concept Statement: Fluid moves mysteriously. The behaviour is a result of complex interaction between different aspects of matters such as speed, mass, weight, temperature… Only once all these aspects affect together cohesively, the pattern evolves. Traditionally and most of the time, the only ways to capture it is through aid of photographic techniques. However, nowadays, through the use of computer simulation technique, we are able to generate and capture number of fluid patterns while they are precisely on their most beautiful moments and not only in 2D but also in 3D. The Frozen Fluid is a series of porcelain lamp that is capturing moments of fluids in 3 dimensional sculpture which is only enabled by the use of computer simulation and digital fabrication technique. It is a result of dynamic flow of digital particles which sometimes looks like liquid fountain, sometimes looks like column of fast spewing smoke depending on the observers.

Project Specs: DIMENSION: -Lamp_01: 10 cm X 10cm X 20cm -Lamp_02: 15 cm X 15cm X 40cm -Lamp_03: 18 cm X 18cm X 50cm -Lamp_04: 21 cm X 21cm X 60cm MATERIALS & PROCESS: The lamp is initially executed through SLA 3D printing technique and through several mounding processes and finally slip cast out of thin layer of porcelain which is strong, light weight and translucent. It is possible to come with different colors and finishes.

Bio: Soomeenhahm Design Ltd is a London based design studio focusing on design research and practice tackling the issues of computational paradigm in architecture across multiple scales and perspectives. The research looks at the ecology of computer generated models, digital fabrication technologies, craftsmanship and human intelligence, see how this collaboration impacts on the design industry and physical environment.
