Industrial H

Omi Tahara, 2019


Design Editions specializes in producing stunning items that land mid-way between a design object and an art piece, creating exceptional pieces designed specifically for your walls. An essential component of civil engineering, the ubiquitous H-beam made from structural steel has been reappropriated from its original function as a basic supportive element into a striking centerpiece, combining a profile in polished metal together with the sides that are left untreated that offer a dull, industrial appearance. Omi Tahara explains: “I wanted to emphasize the impactful shape and primitive beauty of an everyday construction material. It is an important feature when building a home yet it is never considered purely for its aesthetics. The difference between the work of an artist and an industrial designer is that the designer looks to products that can be mass produced, taking into consideration both the manufacturing process and the aesthetics of materials.”
