RPM Cycle

‘RPM cycle’ is a series of bowls and trays which were made by rotating different materials in their liquid form at different rotational speeds. Edouard’s project is part of a larger study into shapes and creatorship and was inspired by laboratory experiments. In many designs, the designer is the one who dictates the shape. Here, the natural parabolic curvature of the objects is dictated also by the material used and the number of revolutions per minute (RPMs) to which it is subjected. You could say that this is an attempt at reaching a design that is as objective as possible.
