Alessi Mutants – Jointness // Exhibition
Jointness is a tea coffee breakfast set which communicates to the users through acting as a mediating means of interaction through the object relation of the set, which communicates between separate individuals who jointly approach each other in a third, joint, virtual space, etc. – one should not be misconstrued with symbiosis.
The multiple configurations of the set is determinate between each object, and is interfaced between each other – hence, like the logical operation of the exclusive disjunction theory, whereby one operation on two logical values produces a value only true where just one object (but not both) is valued truth – each object has a direct interface of where the sum is an element to the whole, & vice-versa, whereby producing completely different complementing combinations.
In addition to the individuality and wholeness of the jointness set, each set is produced in two series – the basic stainless steel, or the composite polythermal plastic & titanium metallic black. tea/coffee/ breakfast takes on another level of sophistication and logics with this dynamic puzzle.
