Aestus is the first design project by architecture and wood researcher Oliver David Krieg. Conceived as a series of stratified wooden vases in search for a new synthesis of traditional materials and modern technology, Aestus is both a story of material exploration and of technical prowess. Carved from hundreds of layers of wood by an industrial robot, the vases capture the fluidity of the machine's movements in the depth of the wooden texture. Each of the four vases is an expression of the aesthetics of a modern manufacturing process, as well as a statement for contemporary wood design.
