Polarity & Unity No. 2 (Brass)
POLARITY & UNITY is a series of lidded vessels. The series explores the sensory qualities of materials and examines the concept of polarity. The object consists of three half spheres made from materials with highly contrasting visual and tactile qualities. The three vessels not only compliment each other visually, assembled they become ONE – and as one well balanced unity they create a place of shelter. POLARITY & UNITY can either be used assembled as a spherical container, or the three half spheres can be used individually as decorative bowls.
Polarity & Unity consists of three half spheres: A heavy base made from highly polished brass, textured with fine lines on the inside. A soft, warm, mesh-like structure formed by cotton threads. A light-weight and translucent polymer lid, engraved with fine lines on both sides. Together the three half spheres form a playful unity, in which each part has its own role and responsibility. The brass bowl provides a solid foundation for the object. It allows the object to gently rock, yet it guarantees a stable standpoint. The cotton structure not only offers a soft and cushioning padding, it also functions as a rim to hold the lid. It is a mediator between the base and the top. And last but not least there is the light-weight and translucent bowl, which acts as a protecting lid.
