“The items created with the ‘pressing-machine’ emphasize the meaning of human actions in creating objects. The choice to extrude profiles and the way one moves the presser has a huge influence on the esthetical appearance of the final artifact. With the project Pressed method, humans and machines are working together in harmony; they need each other in order to create objects. Due to this distinctive craftsmanship, each unique object can be seen as a combination of mechanical production and handmade artifacts.
During the manufacturing process the epoxy-clay is pressed through the extrusion profiles. As a result, machine and human behavior will not only define the product’s shape but also its tint. Combinations of the extrusion profiles are endless; therefore there are also an enormous variety of exclusive objects. Moreover, it is a long-lasting material. The pressed Project facilitates a short and fast manufacturing process from ‘semi-manufactured goods’ into a finalized product.”
