Making planters and using Caesarstone were the initial parameters we set ourselves when beginning to work. Working within an industrial environment, we set out to insert ourselves within the factory's production line.
This was done by manually transforming the pieces by stone carving, inlaying, cutting, grinding, texturing. Vintage Caesarstone is used alongside the current collection, highlighting the material. The planters showcase a spectrum of styles and colours from Caesarstone's palette. Contrasting materials play with our perception of balance. By carefully placing the marble cylinder at its designated spot this minimal yet powerful mobile sets itself in perfect harmony.
This lamp is a nod to the brick — beautiful in its own right. Aesthetically blunt yet stylish and functional, the Brick Lamp is an adjustable LED task lamp for your desk or shelf.
A feature seating solution this piece provides the ultimate in relaxation. Raw and unpretentious, Gridlock is a series of lamps in the style of the Brutalist movement.
Gridlock feels industrial in its straightforward, platonic forms and the repetitive efficiency of the grid; however, it is assembled entirely by hand from thousands of tiny brass parts.
Project commissioned by Arts Co. Bone China tableware, slip cast from plaster models. Minimalistic patterns created through analog 3D printing where movement, imperfection and material deposition form the piece.
The shapes formed are carefully utilised and transformed into functional china pieces, highlighting the skill of the craftsman and creating. Geometric patterns produced by slicing through layers of mdf give this readily available and humble material a tactile appearance. Curation: Maria-Cristina Didero.
Bookends and a lamp composed of a readily available and humble material such as mdf. By handpolishing mdf this rudimentary material is transformed into something new and tactile. The simple geometric shapes of the objects give them the freedom to perform without any restrains. Slat table and bench, made of two-by-four timber lengths laid horizontally to create a top and arranged radially on end to create two cylindrical legs. The bench can be stacked up into a shelf.
A candle is suspended on wires stretched between two walls. When the candle is lit and its wax starts dripping to the floor the weight distribution changes and the candle spins upside down as it moves along the wires. A perfect balance between soft and hard, curve and line.
A series of sand casted chairs where the sand leaves its mark on the material, making each and every chair unique. Installation commissioned by Dezeen and Seven Dials.
A giant installation of bunting made from transparent PVC designed to celebrate and highlight the Seven Dials area and its landmarks. Waving in the wind and uniting to a ceiling, the sixty bunting lines do not hide Earlham Street but reveal its houses and history, leading the way to the Seven Dials monument. The circles shimmer because LEDs shine light at them, while variations in the speed of rotation affect the colour intensity.
A series of lamps or artificial windows inspired by plantation shutters. Rather than mounted, the shutters are secured to a bare wall and contain an artificial light source. Each individual slat is lined with LEDs that replicate the color temperature of daylight. The light emitted is reflected back from the wall on which the window is mounted to produce the impression that a real window lies behind.
Light intensity can be adjusted by manipulating the angle of the shutters. The shapes of the lamps are based on the Tangram: a Chinese dissection puzzle. Each geometric shape of the Tangram shares a set of common proportions, allowing the lamps to be arranged in multiple, complementary configurations. Wanting to give the material a more significant role we set out to design a range of stools and chairs that uses Hallingdal fabric as its main material, therefore doing without the usual structural elements.
The weaving of the fabric is very hard wearing and deep, and after comparing the Hallingdal to certain fibreglass and carbon fiber matting we had the feeling that the Kvadrat fabric could have a structural role as well as an aesthetic one in the creation of a piece of furniture. By applying a simple action, such as rolling to a nonstructural material, a structural strength can be achieved, f. When paired with resin, the fabric acts in a similar way to laminated fibreglass or carbon fibre. The result is a series of stools that use the same piece of fabric from the inside to the outside, for its structure and for its finish.
The Hardie Stool is light and playful, warm and tactile. Curated by Ilse Crawford. That method is virtually indestructible as well as it creates a very stable membrane, structural yet flexible. After exploring ideas for a range of furniture made using this technique, we chose to create a rug because the attention is focused solely on the 2-D object itself, the craftsmanship can be better admired this way. The final piece presents an isometric rectangular prism which was created through playing with ideas of perspective, so that a two dimensional object like a rug could visually spring into the 3D realm.
The metal rug is completely handmade from galvanized steel wire. The looped wire is taken and wound into a tight coil which is then hand cut into small rings.
This process is painstakingly repeated to create the rug and it involves thousands of hand-manufacturing hours, since it is impossible to make by machine. The rug is named after Yachiyo Kawana, an amazing intern that worked on this project from the beginning and is, just like the chain mail method, Japanese.
Gridlock feels industrial in its straightforward, platonic forms and the repetitive efficiency of the grid; however, its structure is assembled entirely by hand from thousands of tiny brass parts. The extrusions are made by using a method called Intarsia making that is traditionally used in Beirut by local craftsmen to produce wood-inlayed and patterned boxes. The pattern is a wafer thin sliver that comes from a big block of laminated wood that is then inlayed on to the boxes. Wanting to use these laminated blocks whole for this project the Intarsia makers were asked to create the blocks with very intricate patters butinstead of slicing them up a lathe-worker took them and turned into objects.
Great investments of time are taken in producing and decorating the crystalware that possesses timeless design, or up to hours for a single object. This investment in time differentiates Lobmeyr from other glass manufacturers and was the inspiration for Time elapsed.
The flow of sand through an hourglass is traditionally used to keep track of elapsed time. It is also physical representation of the fine line between the past and the future. Through the machine in this room, the deposition of sand forms not minutes and hours on a clock face but abstract and changing patterns, illustrating the link between time and decoration.
The sand also holds a physical connection with Lobmeyr, since it is the raw material from which the crystal is created. C'est trop jeune pour partir ainsi! Sophie Boisvert 04 mars Je ne trouve pas de mots pouvant te consoler. Monsieur Boisvert, Monsieur Alain Lemay m'a fait part de votre grande perte. Bonjour Jocelyne et Daniel. Quelle triste nouvelle! Lorraine xxx. Bonjour Jocelyne et Daniel Mes plus sinceres condoleances. Je vous souhaite tout le courage necessaire pour traverser cette douleureuse epreuve.
