A free-flowing umbrella holder, inspired by the ribbed oil and water jars of Greece. The three-part, compartment-like form is tapered for stability and form-ribbed for strength. Included in the range is a smaller vase version, along with a fruit platter with a ribbed base, designed to allow fruit to breathe.
Collections for the home and office by Artedomus, New Volumes explores and pushes the boundaries of a single natural material. For each collection, we select a distinct assembly of designers to bring the material to life.
Collection 02 explores another fundamentally pure material, Terracotta. Terracotta is essentially fire and clay. The first manufactured material perhaps. Mud, water and heat or time. Solidifying to a robust striking colour. It is used in one way or another all over the world and much like marble, the applications cannot be restricted.
A material rich in history and culture yet still has the most contemporary properties. We can throw, cast, and extrude it to our needs and no matter what we do – we do not alter its nature.
