JAZZ FOREST

The Jazz Forest design language takes its starting point from experiments I did with acrylic paint mixed with water. These paintings where reimagined as being three-dimensional and step by step morphed into new shape combinations. To further distil the form language, I took inspiration from Miles Davis’ Spanish Key composition from the 1969 fusion jazz album, Bitches Brew. Analysing the way the track is put together and the mood it evokes gave me descriptive keywords that could help me define the shape universe. It all makes for a highly dense and tensioned soundscape, that informed my speedform’s design principles. It is characterized by a framing of an inner energetic volume. The framing creates unexpected meetings with the inner volume, as well as changing the perception of its density when looked at from different angles. Afterwards the design language was applied on a two-seater sports car interior.
