Aqueduct Vase l Bolia

Aqueduct Vase

This vase makes an analogy through its name and shape to the ancient system that secured running water in cities and enabled them to flourish.

Beside its inspiration source, this vase is characterized by its functionality and its simple yet sculptural aesthetic.

Because of its graphic qualities the object can “live” on its own as a sculpture but it is enhanced when receives the natural beauty of flowers.

Aqueduct is made from a special kind of clay that creates a spotted pattern after firing, this makes every vase unique.

Light Tale l Askia

 

Light Tale

Inspired by a range of shapes and structures but mostly by a type of windmill used for pumping water, Light Tale is a floor lamp in which the sense of balance and good proportion work together to serve functionality.

The geometric shape of the shade tames and gives a sense of touch to the light which is otherwise an indefinite element. It acts mostly the same way the windmill harnesses wind to transform it into energy, only this time energy is transformed into light.

The tail at the back of the shade gives comfort and ease in directing the light source to the desired location, as the tail of the windmill follows the wind so does the lamp follow the user.

The shade provides a cone of light suitable for reading or writing but can also be used just for creating a warm ambient in the room. The contrast between shaded and the illuminated area is well defined due to the opening and form of the shade.

The shade can be rotated around the stem of the lamp at 180 degrees and made to face up or down at 75 degrees.

Materials are chosen to be straight forward and to mix the feeling of the cold and sturdiness of the metal with the warmth of wood. Together they balance the lamp making it both sturdy and delicate at the same time.

The floor lamp is delivered disassembled but it can be put together just by attaching the legs to the stem of the upper shade system.

Officers Desk Accessories

Having in mind that the office spaces, over the past years, have become more flexible and domestic and that more people work from collaborative hubs or home, we designed the Officers collection being inspired by these important behavioral and social changes.

Easy to integrate in any workspace and serving their function through a simple yet sculptural aesthetic, these accessories cross the threshold between environments.

The collection encases an A4 paper holder, a pen + card holder, two sizes of file holders and a wall file holder. The objects are made from steel sheet, material chosen for both its sturdiness and lightweight.

The shapes and details of the products are not following a decorative perspective, but a rational and functional purpose. Therefore, all of them have a 45 degree bent “handle” that make it easier to grab, pull and organize them on a shelf or another surface.

Colours have an equal important role with the shape, and are chosen in relation to one another, taking in consideration the combinations that result by arranging them one beside another.

The belief for which we stand, as to these accessories, was one of creating products that would stand out in their simplicity and dedication to functionality and adaptability to an ever changing work environment.

Twig Collection

Twig collection

The name of the collection refers to the vegetal shape of the legs. These elements replicate the roots and stem of a tree which has its tree crown transformed into a seat.

Asymmetry is a key feature of these objects, being generated by the various heights where the legs take a loop to change direction and then come back again. This asymmetry provides an interesting aesthetics, and in the case of the bar stool serve as supports for the feet. These supports also give the user the choice of how low or how high to keep his feet.

Twig collection is varied and versatile due to the wide variety of finishes which enable the creation of interesting combinations.

Axteroid

Axteroid

Axteroid is a versatile lighting object due to the fact that it can be used as a ceiling  lamp or as a floor lamp, this multiple usage and adaptation is possible because of its shape which helps guide the light in five focused points.

The lamp is designed to illuminate specific points without allowing great dispersion of light on its surroundings, creating strong shades and warm, well defined areas of light. The outcome is a scenographic light setting.

Ferma Collection l Ubikubi

Ferma bathroom collection

This bathroom collection is inspired and makes an analogy to the archaic instruments that helped humans to fetch and transport water.

It seemed that the handle is the element that makes an instrument of carrying most recognizable, so its integration in this design speaks of the source of inspiration without any further additions.

The handle used as a main motif doesn’t help in carrying the objects but instead it has new purposes, such as being a towel hanger or serving as a shelf.

Corian and wood are a very interesting combination of materials that contrast in many ways but altogether blend in a harmonious overall aesthetic.

The collection consists in a free standing washbasin, a wall mounted washbasin, mirrors and stools that have a towel holder integrated in their seating.

2Seat

2Seat

2seat is a chair with two faces that invites you to interact in a new manner with the most often used object, the chair.

It is an interactive design due to the fact that by simply turning the chair over, you transform it into a low chair, and the process can be reversed

Both sides are carefully designed, in relation one to each other, in order to control the final volume but without compromising the ergonomics of either one.

Totem l Ubikubi

Totem candle holder

 

Totem is a set of candleholders made for today’s use of a candle, an aesthetic object with symbolic meaning.

The product is inspired by the idea of using pure geometrical shapes that together create a sculptural volume following functionality and binding it with the simplest shape and concept.

The set of candleholders can be used combined or as single elements, giving freedom in use and the trade of a shape shifting object.

The two conical shapes of the set can hold classic candle sticks while the cylinder holsters a tea light.

The product is made from casted aluminum with powder coated finishes.
