‘wrap, the series of objects by german designer Johannes Hemann examines the shells of things remaining after their disappearance. For this branches of trees are covered in steel wire which is then soldered. The branch is being burnt out of the cast. The original shape of the branches remaining in the cover of steel wire now defines the shape of the lamp, side table…
The shape of the models/ items is not only defined by the process of covering, but mostly by the shape of the branch. And from the shape of the branch, you can guess to which tree the branch belonged. The spruce branches which I used for some lamps, for example, opening wide and wild. the beech branches creating leaner, higher forms.
The surface on the outside is polished until you can see the two materials: the steel wire and the brass soldering wire. The different colors also a reminiscence of the making and the annual growth rings. the inside has not been polished or treated but only been lacquered, to actually show the process
