Babilus is inspired by the architecture of ancient cities, temples and altars, resonating human kind’s aspiration for verticality. 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. The series comes in 4 different sizes: a vase for a single flower, for a bouquet, or for a small plant. Each combines natural materials like bamboo and chipboard with Corean manipulated to resemble stone. Built layer by layer, the resulting character has a raw, rich and vivid texture.
