A unique design collection featuring a series of vessels.
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.
