Silo inhabits many worlds at once, creating a striking metaphor for duality. Its vertical shapes take cues from brutalist architecture, recalling visions of concrete towers, cityscapes, and metallic wind instruments. As a stand-alone piece or featured in a cluster, the collection plays with negative space to reflect its surroundings, making it as compelling turned off as when illuminated. Created using 10’ custom aluminum extrusions, the Silo’s various shapes act as an alphabet, all while retaining exquisite simplicity.
The Silo is both industrial and carefully handmade.
Similar to pushing play-doh or pasta through a press, the Silo’s extrusion process involves pushing aluminum through a die, driving the metal to take whatever shape the die demands.
While this process embodies the brutalism of manufacturing, its subsequent treatment brings human craftsmanship back to the forefront of its design. Its resulting impact is at once understated and refined.
