The challenge LACESCAPE TABLE by Miro Roman & Luka Vlahović interweaves the threads of know-how and custom. It was devised by Croatian ladies lace-makers, and utterly digitally designed and fabricated. LACESCAPE TABLE is an concept and an idea which includes a whole inhabitants of tables. It is strictly due of the abundance of a number of expressions of lace-making that the designers don’t restrict themselves to creating one desk that may show the only most lovely Croatian lace: “Rather, we direct our give attention to a collection of objects that may have fun the richness and variety of Croatian lace-making: the gorgeous and the mesmerizing patterns, the imperfect and the flawless ones“, defined the builders.
The designer not manipulates the “object” itself, however designs and directs the principles, methods and narratives that may generate, produce and promote that object. The laser minimize floor and the digitally bent plate create the LACESCAPE TABLE which examines how the intangible cultural heritage leaves its mark on the way forward for digital design:” We need to play with the postmodern legacy of quoting and collaging through the use of algorithmic design. We quote, rummage and play with the weather of cultural heritage. We take them to infinity. Instead of nature, tradition turns into a haven for our algorithms. ” Information offered by way of e-mail by Roman Vlahovic; Photography: Maja Bosnić, Ivan Dorotić / Lauba
