In the pressure series Tim Teven uses material deformation under extreme pressure as a tool to design.
The deformation of metal by exerting pressure leads to exciting technical details, as well as new optical and haptic qualities.
The Pressure vases are made of steel tubes which are pressed in under extreme pressure. Exposing the tubes to up to 45 metric tons of pressure makes them yield and beautiful folds appear, making the normally hard and cold material look soft and tangible. The folds do not only change the appearance of the metal tube but also hold in the bottom disc, giving the tube it's function as a vase.

Tim Teven (1993), dutch designer, graduated at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2018.
A technical and material driven approach to design together with hands on way of working allows him to play and create in an experimental way. In many of the works the production proces is used as a tool to design and a leading aspect to shape the final outcome and function of the object.
Treating materials in an unconventional way to rethink the process of making, allows him to find surprising techniques which then can be translated into a functional yet interesting object. Teven works from his design studio based in Eindhoven founded in 2018, where all the objects are hand made with industrial craftsmanship.
