Silo Studio’s practice intervenes in the processes of mass production to extract methods and materials into the studio environment.
Through the exploitation of these industrial resources, using simple hand-made crafting practices, they reveal new potentials in materials such as polystyrene, resins and thermoplastic composites. They call this ‘handmade hi-tech’, creating textiles formed glass, steamed polystyrene furniture and centrifugally dispersed resin tableware. In doing so they reveal the possible craft applications of materials previously bound to mass-production and in turn offer their findings back to the industry.
