"Still" Charcoal Dish by Formafantasma

by J. & L. Lobmeyr

designed in 2014, new

Austria

 

The charcoal dish designed as part of the "Still" series by Formafantasma took the shape of the candy dish designed by Oswald Haerdtl in 1925 for the "Exposition des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes" and comes in two engraved designs, silica and bacteria.  "Still" is a collection of crystal and copper pieces with aesthetic, contemporary, and carefully engraved crystals. These pieces are the investigation into water-purification started by the designers in 2012. The crystals engraved with two different patterns: one is a new microscopic view of bacteria found in rivers. The other is a 19th-century representation of an organism that lives in the oceans and is characterized by having a skeleton made of silica.

The collection includes large and medium crystal vessels and tumblers, a charcoal dish, vessel filter, cup filter, a copper ladle, spoons and cups. The latter makes reference to the Drinking service No. 267 "Alpha" designed by Hans Herald Rath.
