True colors panels & vases

-Expo Next Up

By treating the copper with a variation of chemicals, Lex Pott has designed a series of vases with different discolorations. To depict this process, he manufactured a series of panels.

Transience mirror

-Expo Next Up

The silver layer on the back of mirrors are deliberately oxidized. This artificial aging process is added into a decorative pattern. The reflection does not only show the transience of everyone who looks at it, but also of the mirror itself.

Reconfiguration of a tree

-Expo Next Up

The rise of synthetic resin has caused traditional wood resin to fall into abeyance. Thomas Vailly has literally dissected the Pinus Pinaster – a tree with a characteristic black resin – in wood and black resin. In collaboration with other designers, a contemporary product collection has been established from these resources.
