oog design studio, collaborated with EXPERIMENTAL CREATIONS a project that focuses on material experimentations and creative processes working exclusively with japanese designers. The studio experimented eggshells.
oog design studio’s statement
Eggshells protect the content of eggs and posses a kind of fragility that it can be broken even by a small life force. We may be able to create a container of entirely new values by replacing these features with others. We focused on the color, texture and cracks of the shell in this experiment.
Process – Blend eggshell powder and gypsum powder and mold it into an arbitrary shell shape. Apply thin silicon to the inner wall to form an eggshell membrane.
