boys on wheels

This work is a portable kitchen designed with three objects on wheels. 'Volta' to brew coffee, 'Lumberjack Jack' serving as the cutting board and server, and 'Hassan' the brazier with powerful fire like a volcano. The design is not based on anything but the imagination and fascination that we have for things when we were children.

The boys on wheels escape into a dreamworld in which design is based on childish fantasies and not logic and ergonomics.

Every object was directly translated from the drawing made of it before. The project was created as part of a residency at the LUMA Foundation in Arles, France.
