1.618 is a sustainable development and luxury company situated in Paris. Together with the Herald Tribune they launched a project involving Parsons Paris, in which the students had to use the company’s old catalogues to create artwork that would be exhibited at the Parsons Paris gallery.
Below is my final project: The numbers and gears are made completely out of the catalogues. Other materials used are aluminium rods, wood and glue.
Recycling changes a material from something useless into something completely different. The numbers turning amongst themselves, becoming unrecognizable and eventually matching up again, represent the idea of this sustainable and recyclable material continuously transforming itself.
This project was chosen by the company to be displayed at their press conference in Paris.
