Day 10 - weekend - not really

Due to our schedule we work over this weekend ..something we have to rethink the next time ...really but we started later and tried to end earlier ...but we had to move the groups with a stick out of the hall at the end of the day ...every group seems to be pushed and thrilled to see their projects coming to full swing. And I have to say I feel the same, its not the first time I do something like that in general but our students always surprised me everytime again. Its groups like our chill and work chair case - telling them the principles of upholstery - having a piece of plywood backing, place a foam panel around and then wrap it with fabric - easy told, but then you see the group coming in action and there it is ...a wonderful space, cosy and cushy that invites to crawl into - to chill actually.

then the library - reading - bookshelf made nearly entirely out of honeycomb cardboard slices into each other - they cutted for days and finally within an hour the entire thing stands there ...

The team of the sitting landscape added some painted and nicely sanded plywood sheets to their stack of cardboard and in a sudden the thing turned into a wonderful furniture object that invites to relax - don't sit ! Fresh paint ! - ok, got it ...but tomorrow- like these in our orange hall in Delft !

The most visible due to its height is the octagon - 4 position turning seat that allows to sit in many different ways ..first started a bit with the wrong order but then in a sudden everything comes together perfectly and I have to admit - the green foam adds to the overall appearance and makes it so calm - we have to talk to Ahrend ....

Last but for sure not least the team around the Honeycomb Pavillion with their special project for the paper conference in Brussel- they cutted their way through half of a truckload of honeycomb panels, stacked them nice and neatly, ordered them according to their different shape and now started to glue the sheets together and adding led strips - yes this thing will glow - blue actually - and while I made one power supply explode in front of them I scared the hell out of them and questioned my electric installation skills - blue is brown, red comes to blue and this should be here ...normally works - the experts insured me - everything fine its maybe a shitty chin... monday morning product ...ah I should not say that, actually the end of the hall becomes my own trainings camp for the summer school in Beijing 45degrees 87 % humidity ( the last picture shows the conditions the best )  - but the girls keep on and while half of the team had to join a wedding Olga and Dina kept going on - I am impressed about their dedication - they never complain - and I helped with making their life a bit easier by developing a special cable groove tool to run the electric wires invisible within the panels ...still not perfect ...

So but enough for today.
