Nir Meiri and REDESIGND Present: Babel

A unique design collaboration, featuring a series of vessels in a limited edition

Nir Meiri created a series of vessels that walk the thin line between art and functional design, continuing his line of work with matter and form. The series includes two vases for a single flower; three lidded boxes; two candlesticks; and three trays - all combining natural materials such as bamboo and chipboard with korean, which was manipulated by the designer to resemble stone. Each object was built layer by layer to create a singular rich and vivid texture. Babel is inspired by the architecture of ancient cities, temples and altars, resonating human kind’s aspiration to touch the sky. As a series, the vessels illustrate an ancient city’s skyline, while each one stands alone as a functional product with a powerful presence that strikes the imagination. Each object is hand-made by the designer, and is part of a limited edition, consisting of nine items of each product.
