Furnitool, 2020

This work shows how moving from one location to another can have implications on one’s status, identity and value. In this series of furniture the vise has been relocated from the workshop to the home; from labour intensive tool it has gone in becoming a static design feature. It has gone from being only a tool to an object to build and construct with.

The contextual move has not only increased the vise its potential but also its value, desirability and social status.
