Braid

  • Launched for 2014 Zaha Hadid Design Collection

The Braid candle holder and vases derive from a multi-disciplinary approach to design.

Inspired by Zaha Hadid’s investigations into the nature of the tower form, and handmade in ceramic, the base’s complex geometry extends to support a candle of 20mm diameter or it may stand alone as a sculptural piece.

Drawing inspiration from Zaha Hadid’s tower studies, the Braid vase can be thought of as architecture in miniature – the glazed ceramic pieces have been made by hand, and rise up from a delicately woven base, playfully inverting the idea of a falling braid.

Inspired by the formal possibilities of exploring the limits of a material to create a dramatic sculptural form, the smoke-coloured polished resin ‘towers’ of the Braid double candle holder draw on the studio’s fluid architectural language to create an elegant candelabra.
