gt2p | Tarrugao CollectionIs it possible for a temporary action to be captured in an object?

Is it possible that objects react with human contact? 

Is it possible that they expect to be hugged, cuddled and taken carefully?

Tarrugao collection is the manifestation of the fleeting presence of life on a rigid surface. Each jar reacts to human intervention and the action of taking or hugging each piece is materialized in its essence. The geometric features of all pieces together form a “still life” of parameterized objects of daily use.

That unique moment is captured in each Tarrugao (está + arrugado = being wrinkled), depending on the place and the pressure that is on it. The result of this pressure is a soft surface wrinkled waiting for a careful human interaction. Just as the embrace of reconciliation when Chile returned to democracy.

Its DNA of design starts on a surface of revolution, which is cropped successively to control their development. The resulting cuts are duplicated, scale and subdivided into points. The combination of the points of the original lines and the scaled ones creates “wrinkled” curves. These wrinkles are more pronounced where the fact of taking the object is present. With the wrinkles the surface is reconstructed and finally softened.

This collection explores from parametric design and rapid prototyping the potential of local handicraft porcelain, a technique that tends to be increasingly forgotten in Chile.

The new campus of TAC SEV is built across from the existing property of Tarsus American College (TAC). Considering its proximity to the historic context of the school, the new campus is conceived, as a design principle, a part of the TAC campus it is separated from by a road that traverses the premises.
