Something new at Matter is this unusual series by Omer Arbel of Canadian design firm Bocci.
In this project, the '19 Series', Omer Arbel explored sandcasting, a relatively imprecise way to produce metal objects en masse.
The overspill, an inherent part of this method, has been used to a design (or should we say sculptural?) advantage by creating wholly unique objects.
The resulting copper trays are a study in contrast, combining a high polish with a rough, imprecise and unrepeatable edge.
Elegance and severity, tranquility and volcanism - all from just one material.
