DRAWING TOOLS

Usually the idea we have about a tool is that it helps us to fulfill a function that makes a task easier.

The Morphe collective, made up of students of master’s degree in design at ESAD in Caldas da Rainha, asks us the question:

“… WHAT IF THE TOOL DIFFICULTIES OR PREVENTS THE TASK? WILL THIS LET YOU HAVE A FUNCTION? “

Corp is the set of tools proposed by designers Ana Vala, Davide Mateus and João Timóteo, the result of a research on how we design, materializing concepts that relate the hand and the gesture in the search for alternative approaches to the drawing.
UNA, DUPLA and NORA are the subject of a creative residency promoted jointly by Viarco and Oliva Creative Factory.

  • This tool produces unpredictable movements and results, from a conventional pencil join with a flexible prosthesis. This flexibility and, at the same time, elasticity do, from the act of drawing, a challenging exercise in the pursuit of tool domination.

  • It´s like a joint between two pencils, which begins to draw in parallel through a spring system that moves away the pencils and brings them closer. And, at the same time that we draw, we become choreographers.

  • In this ingenious tool the movement is generated from one centre, producing two types of spots at the same time. A stronger spot that marks the central axis, and a second lighter spot that goes around the circumference at this same centre.
