As much goes the jug, without soup becomes chair

Pierrick LONJOU. Diploma project. DSAAD Product design. 2020

My project deals with containers used for serving a liquid, and more specifically water. Through this project, I wanted to try an exploratory approach, oriented on formal experimentation, gripping and the relationship that we will maintain with the object. To reach this objective, I first conducted an exploration phase on containers by means of a typological classification, a monitoring of existing projects but also via lexical resources. Later, this first phase allowed me to anchor my project, and to launch a formal research phase. The utensil I designed proposes a new way of using (serving?) water at the table. I designed my object from a very precise gesture, so by working on the container’s design, my objective was to  ritualize the serving of water thanks to the manipulation of this object.
