The FACETURE series designed by Phil Cuttance consists of handmade faceted vessels, light-shades and table. Each vase in the series is produced individually by casting a water-based resin into a simple handmade mold. The mold is then manually manipulated to create the each object’s form before each casting, making every piece utterly unique.
Despite the crisp appearance of the FACETURE vases, they may have tiny slight surface imperfections as a result of the process; for example where the mold is joined with tape during casting; this is part of the handmade story The Faceture Vase design is shortlisted in the Product Design Category for the Design of Year Awards 2013.
You can check out a previous our site post, where we featured more items in the FACETURE collection, as well as a short movie regarding the production process. The project is available exclusively at Dsigndot with a limited run of each colour in 100 pieces.
Speaking of “less is more” design, if your shelf offers little display space, consider opting for one or two standout items to showcase rather than a slew of small finds. In the next image, we see the Magical Thinking Peaks Shelf, crafted from glass and aluminum. Then again, there’s something charming about a curiously cluttered look, especially if items are thoughtfully curated. The Magical Thinking Pyramid Shelf below holds treasures and curiosities. When your shelves make a sculptural statement, don’t overwhelm and block them with clutter. After all, when the design is as fabulous as the Bamboo Step Wall Shelf in the next featured image, you certainly don’t want to cover up the bold form of your shelving.
Create height with items such as plants, artwork and books. Alternate taller pieces with shorter items such as peite vases, as shown below in the A Beautiful Mess studio living room. Not sure where to start? Choose a cohesive look and go for it! The next shelf vignette featured at Emily Henderson showcases a “Desert New Age” style, which welcomes earthy tones, tribal patterns, succulents and mineral specimens, among other pieces. In fact, in the next image we see the exact same shelf, this time styled to create a Playful Scholar look featuring neutral, masculine colors. Note special touches such as a globe and a bust displayed in a cloche. Incorporate a few unique conversation pieces into your shelving display for added interest.
