Initiated by the American Hardwood Export Council and Benchmark Furniture, the Ves-el is a collaboration between Gareth Neal and Zaha Hadid for water carafes. Each piece explores the relationship between the hand-crafted and the mechanical processes of design and fabrication with the 3D modelling used by Zaha Hadid Architects. Neal extruded the form along one of its axes with a slit opening at the end that allowed the viewer to within. The vessels were made in two parts on a CNC machine at Benchmark Furniture.
