With the launch and funding of this 2016 Kickstarter campaign I will produce a limited edition series of the Engage Collection Nesting Bowls.
My passion for developing the Engage Nesting Bowls was birthed from a desire to design beautiful objects for the communal dining experience during my graduate thesis. The collection was inspired by the relationships that we develop during our dining experiences with friends, family, and loved ones. The aesthetics of this collection hinge on the beauty found in the ancient craft of Origami, sculptural organic forms, and enduring materials. A sense of sustainability is also based on the design and material selection of each nesting bowl.
The Engage Collection consist of a six piece nesting bowl set featuring slump glass and stainless steel. Each stainless steel bowl is hand crafted by utilizing both traditional cold forming and innovative manufacturing techniques (ie.water jet cutting).
The Engage collection is scheduled for production starting in the Spring of 2017 with a projected completion during the Fall of 2017.
I am collaborating with local artisans and studios to produce each piece of the Engage Collection.
Ultimately, my mission is to create emotionally sustainable and aesthetically enduring interior products for the communal and social dining experience.
Thank you for considering my project!
