Alchimist  

287 Grs.

This collection explores the re-evaluation of simple objects from daily life -such as bottles- enabling them new life and function. Adorned with additions of noble brass by 200 Grs, the pieces communicate an architectural relationship and sculptural aura about them. Distinctive all the while familiar, these sculptural vases bring the mysterious and poetic relationship between nature and geometry to any interior.

Hold Me/Hold You

 425 Grs. the pair.

Square - section rods of noble brass carry black steel cups that hold a single candle. Each rod and cup unit depends on another for structure, enabling the chandelier to come together only though total dependency. The transfer of structure between units is boundless, and chandeliers can grow as long or wide as a surface may accommodate.

TWO FOLD TRAY:

842 Grs. 1548 Grs.

The tray's classic, warm, circular or rectangular shape is a product of subtle embrace of two noble materials. A Japanese walnut, or French oak disk tapers towards the edge where it is hugged in place against a base sheet of polished brass. The tray holds its own in a gesture that invites the user to reach for its folds and adopt it with a nimble lift.

COUP DE COEUR

780 Grs. 987Grs. 1057 Grs. 1135 Grs. 1089 Grs.1340 Grs.

Made from sand-cast aluminium, each“coup de coeur” is manually moulded and embellished with a brass geometric inlay or Stainless Steel by local artisans; a traditional process that returns individually unique pieces. The beveled rim enables the “coup de coeur to be easily lifted, while appearing to float gently on the tabletop.

These products were commissioned by House of Today in collaboration with WallpaperStore. Part of the pop up shop in the third Biennale Exhibition at the Yacht Club, Beirut. Lebanon. 

 

 

OUR CLASSICS

108 Grs. 221 Grs. 198 Grs. 239 Grs. 93 Grs. 182 Grs. 29 Grs. 621 Grs. 246 Grs. 618 Grs. 743 Grs. 1289 Grs. 

our classics are made out of fall-off pieces of wood. Pieces are made by carefully bringing together different types of wood, along with metal and in some instances rubber, textile or cardboard.  Each piece falls within the general ballpark of 200 Grs. -the inspiration behind the name of the series- and carries the name of its precise weight. The produced objects are appropriated and manipulated by their users in a variety of ways, opening the door to countless interpretations and utilizations. Accordingly, 200 Grs. embodies a discourse of dialogue between its creators and its end users, allowing each object to create unique ergonomic and emotional relationships with its future owner.

vanity Fair

1600 Grs.

We are part of a society where aesthetics and boundaries are blurred. Vanity Fair is a child-play questioning one aspect of these limitless actions. A reflection of the other projected on each one of us.
