The Drag project deals with a production process inspired by the traditional plaster dragging technique in which the plaster is constrained in shape by a profile while hardening. This technique traditionally used to produce ornamental cornices is adapted here in order to serially produce various typologies of objects thanks to a single apparatus. The process results in an infinite variation of shapes, all based on solids of revolution.
