Engineering Temporality by Dutch designer Tuomas Markunpoika Tolvanen is a statement about impermanence of memory and time. Prompted by his grandmother's battle with Alzheimer's disease, Tolvanen experimented with various pieces of existing furniture, covering each one with a custom network of steel rings. Next he would set the entire piece on fire, waiting for the furniture to burn away and leave the steel mesh behind. The result is the designer's statement about lost objects that were once emotional attachments.  Emerging Design Talent at imm Cologne by Amanda Dameron
