300kg Beauty Bath by Frederik Nystrup-Larsen and Oliver Sundqvist | The Mindcraft Project | Dezeen



A 300-kilogram aluminium sculpture contains one centimetre of water for a birdbath in Danish artists Frederik Nystrup-Larsen and Oliver Sundqvist’s work, showcased in our Dezeen x The Mindcraft Project 2021 collaboration.

Function follows form in the artist’ piece, titled 300kg Beauty Bath and picked as one of 10 experimental designs for The Mindcraft Project exhibition.

The duo did not set out with any conceptual foundation or end goal for the piece; instead, they let the process — which involved working with polystyrene, tape and aluminium — dictate the end result.

They built the form initially out of polystyrene and tape, and then sand-cast it — meaning they buried it in sand and then poured in molten aluminium.
