Nebil Zaman is a Norwegian designer living and working in Oslo. His background is in traditional woodworking and furniture design, which he has since fused with his fascination and interest in architecture, art and technology. Based on his upbringing and experiences, he explores how our surroundings affect us socially and culturally. With an education in advertising, furniture crafts, and design, Zaman's interest in materials, production techniques, and visual languages are visible in his work. Throughout his career, he deals with function, form, identity, and visual culture.
His latest series of laser cut plaster cast MDF furniture forms, places an emphasis on material and texture. Zaman is most intrigued by the materiality of plaster, it provides a sense of freedom in loosing control of the final outcome. While there is extreme precision in the digital fabrication techniques to create the armature, the addition of plaster to the process provides an organic element of expression and randomness.
