After Pressure by Ammar Kalo
After Pressure is a project that up-cycled construction aluminum to create an outdoor table. Bales made from compressed Aluminum extruded profiles, which were originally headed to the furnace for melting, are shaped and sliced to form carefully composed ‘logs’. These logs support a cantilevered Glass-Reinforced concrete (GRC) table top as well as draped surfaces used for seating. A large slice at the end of each log reveals moments of organic beauty in the compressed bricks.
