Weave delicately elevates food to create a sense of drama and celebration. We not only enjoy a good meal through our taste-buds, we also see and feel it when it is presented before us. Its elevated, web-like surface elegantly presents food, while it also allows water or preserving and deep-frying oils to drain onto the accompanying dish below. Weave creates a sense of occasion by hybridising the geometry and patterning of woven bamboo with the durable materiality of contemporary stainless steel. Bamboo has long been used for serving foods that require being drained and dried. The dimensions of the bamboo strips and the gridded nature of weaving imbue woven bamboo objects with a feeling of softness and lightness. Weave translates this character into stainless steel by replacing the traditional weaving technique with a layered network of grids.
little wonder challenges the status-quo by creating new experiences and relationships between humans, artifacts, and environments through engaging natural phenomena, new materials and processes, and sensorial experiences. little wonder interpolates between installations, product design and craft. We have collaborated with companies such as Rosenthal (DEU), Interface (USA), Duravit (DEU), Emotis (FRA), and Lucifer Lighting (USA). Our work has been exhibited in venues in Helsinki, New York, Toronto, Philadelphia, Stuttgart, Sydney and Melbourne. Significantly, the Opening vase, in collaboration with Rosenthal, was among 50 selected to represent the 50th anniversary of the Rosenthal Studio-Line (1961-2011).
