Vibeke Skar of VS design studio and studio Jens Praet have teamed up to created two brand new collections, both labeled under one theme: 'Industrial Impact'.
First launched at the Salone del Mobile in Milan this year, the pieces are a reflection on the industrial revolution’s major after-effect; global warming and glacier melting; both of which are currently threatening the earth's natural balance.
In designing these ranges, both studios intend to try and to reach people’s attention by creating everyday objects with a subtle environmental message.
The end result is a table collection inspired by the Arctic with its melting ice glaciers and eroded details.
Along with this collection, the designers have also developed a glass collection consisting of a series of lamps representing the industrial revolution.
Through the use of sensitive detailing, refering to industrial evergreen elements for the 'Industrial' collection and eroded and water carved details for the 'Arctic' collection, VS and Jens Praet have created a strong comunication medium enhancing the importance of both global industrialization and the beauty of the Arctic environment.
