Ceramic Stools Collection Concept
Design: Ricardas Blazukas.
Location: Kuwait / UAE
Awards: Ceramic Stools Collection awarded a Runner-up Position at Middle East Emergent Designer Prize 2017 hosted by Van Cleef & Arpels x Tashkeel.
Ceramic Stools Collection - a reinterpretation of growth examining new and traditional materials and crafts, with DIY production. Ricardas Blazukas uses modern glazes for striking colour, ceramic fibre insulation to build the kiln, and firing gas as the heat source. The lack of accuracy in temperature is an opportunity to introduce a moment of chance in the aesthetic of the collection. As a finishing touch, Ricardas created soft poufs, upholstered with colourful Kvadrat wool, to lightly hold each stool and complement the Collection.
