Pipeline Stool

Modelled in Rhino and rendered in Modo

The pipeline stool is is another branch of this same idea established in some of my other projects (see Le Crowbusier and The Facility). It is inspired by the complex pipe systems in the facilities that I used to work in as a welder and it takes those industrial forms and applies them to something other then their original purpose. This also explores how careers like oil and gas industry welding can be shifted to have new intentions. Many of the trades people I worked with were afraid of losing their jobs if the world were to shift away from fossil fuels as a primary energy source for transportation. This project was a way for me to offer an alternative purpose for their work.
