The X is all about showing off the natural raw edge directly opposed to the refined architectural edge. The clear perspex shows how we can exist in harmony with nature by combining natural and man-made into one. Nature invisibly rounded of by the manufactured both elements relying on each other to result in a functional piece. The design is solid and void.
The Umthi series finds its inspiration in the beauty of the natural and the crisp edge of the architectural line. Nature’s fluid beauty meanders through the sophisticated manufactured line like moulded lava. The gift of the natural tree is celebrated in every piece to reminds us where we come from while the refined silky edges talks to our appreciation for the luxurious.
