Material Futures – Vacuum Cleaner
We were commissioned to carve the base of this vacuum cleaner by Eunhye Ko for her MA Material Futures exhibition at Central Saint Martins, London.
We have worked with the designer to re-create an existing plastic component of a vacuum cleaner in wood using traditional carving skills.

Through this project, Eunhye Ko celebrated and explored how tradition and craft could not only enrich our emotional connection to such goods, but also be far more sustainable in the process.
You can watch the video clip of the carving process on her Instagram.
