Materials: Solid olive wood
Does the shape of an object needs to dictate its possible use?
Viernes por la tarde is not a stool but can be sat on, is either a side table but you can place something on top; this non-defined item serves different purposes but its form does not pre-dictate its possible role.
The object has been made with olive wood coming from the annual pruning of the olive tree, this type of wood is normally overlooked by the wood processing industry due to its irregular shape. In Andalucía - a region on the south of Spain that produces 1/3 of the entire olive oil´s world production - is regularly used as wood fire.
This is the first step of an ongoing project that investigates the potential applications of discarded materials from the olive oil industry in Mediterranean countries.
The project was launched at Espacio Báltico during the first edition of Madrid Design Festival
