Babel

A unique design collection featuring a series of vessels.

 

2014

 

In this collection the designer created a series of vessels that walk on the thin line between art and functional design, continuing his line of work with matter and form.

 

The series includes vases for a single flower; lidded boxes; candlesticks; and trays – all combining natural materials such as bamboo and chipboard with korean, which was manipulated by the designer to resemble stone.

Each object was built layer by layer to create a singular rich and vivid texture.

 

Babel is inspired by the architecture of ancient cities, temples and altars, resonating human kind’s aspiration to touch the sky. As a series, the vessels illustrate an ancient city’s skyline, while each one stands alone as a functional product with a powerful presence that strikes the imagination.

 

Each object is hand-made at the studio.
