[ENG] Born from the training for Hamburg's dental study admission examn we came up with the idea to shape minimalistic ear charms from 1 mm stainless steel wire. The few curves and sharp bents transform the one dimentional wire into intricat minimalistic objects which remind of the strict forms of cubist painting. | [GER] Angeregt durch die Übungen für die Zulassungsprüfung zum Hamburger Zahnmedizinstudium entwickelten wir die Idee, minimalistische Ohr-Charmes aus 1 mm Edelstahldraht zu formen. Die wenigen Kurven und scharfen Biegungen verwandeln den eindimensionalen Draht in minimalistische Objekte, dessen strenge Formen an kubistische Malerei erinnern.

"FORESTAY"

The ear charms series "FORESTAY" by Andreas Riess comprises unique pieces that are bent by hand from 1 millimeter stainless steel filaments of a Vindö sailing yacht's retired forestay having travelled the southern Baltic for many years. The filaments come off the forestay in a typical twisted shape. This deformation stays in the wire to a little degree, thus in a subtle manner telling of its origion.

The Idea Behind the Design

 

This is about differences having something in common. Differences are to be found everywhere. There are many roads to travel, attitudes to take. Different methodes to achieve something. Different designs in what we create. And then there are differences in race, believes, experiences made.

Different genes make flora and fauna a whole universe of different individuals struggling to keep their place on earth. And here's the catch: All share the same space. You make something out of that.
