The idea behind this project is to show how a product can transmit a message. Here, I tried to talk about humans and nature. I wanted to express that whatever the human race do to control the Nature, she will survive us.
To express this idea, I took a strong symbolic. The grass growing through the concrete, like when the vegetation cover the ruin.
So I created a table centrepiece, made out of concrete, the material used for buildings. I cultivated grass in it and I designed the top with a reference to the book ‘the mechanisation in power’.
In the end, this product has a function, but the main idea, as a table centrepiece is to spread a message.
