Ubiquitous drinking straws are grouped and transformed into a primitive spot light. The reflective inner surface of the straw transmits the light in a directional manner creating a jewelesque effect.
Made from 10,000 drinking straws, the Clutch Chair is an exploratory research piece that passes comment on our disposable culture. The development process of this piece also informed that of the Clutch Light, both of which were developed from an observation of the structural characteristics of trees. This piece was selected by Zaha Hadid as her Curators Choice at Noise Festival 2008
The Clutch Project began as a microscopic observation of the structural composition of trees and the directional properties of Capillary tubes (xylem).
