Gosha Robot is a case for used batteries made from oak wood. Designers, architects, painters and design critics — 16 authors of different professions have took part at this project by Alexander Kanygin. All of them had to create different objects closely associated to the futuristic aesthetic of robotics. The difference between the aesthetic perceptions of people of different art professions has provided an opportunity to reveal the theme from various perspectives. One of the most important stipulations of the project was a functional component of all the objects. Moreover, the duration of production of each object couldn’t be longer than a single day, and the overall dimensions must not exceed 300 × 300 × 300 mm.
