100 grams - Crafting detail.
The challenge was to create something that feels precious by playing with weight, different treatments of the material, shape and packaging, without using nobel materials or ornamentation.
100 grams is a one piece stainless steel pocket mirror. The polished finish on its surface assures a mirror-like reflection. The rest of the object has a brushed finish which still reflects part of the surrounding, but with much less fidelity.
From paper to stainless steel.
The design of 100 grams was driven by the way the object should look and feel. Below you can find digital sketches of details, proportions and finishes. In parallel to that I developed models to study the shape, properties of the material, weight and tactile qualities.
