The Cube Series, available in four variants from Maison Gerard, boasts a remarkably flexible range of
functions. A Cube can serve as a stool, ottoman, table or artwork. Standing alone, it
makes a strong sculptural statement. At the opposite end of the applications spectrum,
several Cubes can be grouped or ganged together as highlight pieces in informal,
transitional or reception areas, or as outdoor furniture.
The Cube looks old and otherworldly; however, any formal representation is purely
coincidental. Rather, the Cube Series exemplifies two of STACKLAB’s continuing
interests. First, to create objects whose appearance tells the viewer something about
how it was made. In this case, the Cubes celebrate the industrial process that creates
moulds for producing sand-cast metal parts.
More importantly, STACKLAB has an interest in reintegrating historic materials into the
scaled production of useful, modern objects. While patterns are still commonly used in
manufacturing, they are regularly decommissioned and archived in response to industry
innovation. There is a growing abundance of unproductive industrial patterns in
foundries and factories. Many of these historic patterns were hand-carved by
craftspeople whose specialized knowledge of metallurgy and woodworking has been
mostly forgotten in today’s era of computer-aided manufacturing.
STACKLAB has been experimenting with disused wooden patterns, made between
1890 and 1950, to create cast furnishings and sculptures that reuse the patterns in a
different, contemporary way.
One reuse strategy, exemplified by the Cube Series, is to reconfigure a wooden pattern
of a decommissioned, historic pump as a mould to make a casting in an alternative, low-
temperature medium such as Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC).
