Commissioned by the Austrian Museum of Applied arts in Vienna. The objects are a further development of the Ground series. The bottle opener and corkscrew are currently available at the MAK store in Vienna and the Phillips De Pury and Company shop in New York.
A three dimensional response to the work of the Japanese Ido period artist Itō Jakuchū. The lanterns take on the form of an extruded scroll with a section cut away that reveals a differing portion of the internal structure. Once illuminated the various exposed layers create distinctive graphic effects and display varying qualities of tone and light intensity.
Each object is formed from a standard 18 inch section of Ground Flat Stock. A high quality steel, precision machined in Sheffield, England. This oil hardening steel is normally used by toolmakers as it has a high wear resistance after heat treatment, making it ideal for industrial applications such as dies, press tools, punches, machine knives and marking devices.
Ground stationary was presented at Connectors, a selling exhibition of design works curated by Brent Dzekciorius for Phillips De Pury and Company at the Saatchi Gallery, London. An edition was later sold through the Phillips De Pury and Company Shop in London and New York.
An ongoing project to explore the formal possibilities and practical applications of Porcelain foil.
One of the most striking qualities of the material is its delicacy and interaction with light. In this first incarnation as a tea service, the process of brewing and pouring generate intriguing kinetic visuals. Ripples and undulations are projected onto the translucent sides of the vessels to create a live display of abstract movement in reflected hues of light and shadow.
A collaborative project with Berlin based fashion designer Gabriella Marina Gonzalez for her Spring / Summer 2014 collection.
The brass bells with beech wood ringer incorporate standard millinery fittings at the base, allowing them to be attached to the leather accessories that make up the basis of the collection.
A collection of open source, self assembly, environmentally sound desk organisers. The series takes advantage of an internet connection for delivery, scrap paper as raw material and a desktop printer as production facility. The set includes a pencil holder, A5 envelope, a fix for a broken Biro, an envelope tidy, and an extension that allows you to prolong the useful life of your over-sharpened pencils.
Collaborative project with Vienna based studio BKM Design Working Group. Our proposal was to design a contemporary formulation of the vase lamp. Focusing on the vase, the vessel. Not concealed by a lamp shade but illuminated and it’s meaning emphasized. It is not our primary intention to communicate our knowledge about the unaware tasks of the vase but to define a new category of objects that use this knowledge and re-introduce this mysterious product to the contemporary interior.
