when objects work — Collection II

Walnut and tin, soft and timeless materials, plays a pivotal role in these new series of objects created for when objects work. Every household entails a certain amount of key objects such as a fruit bowl, a tray and provision jars. Nicolas Schuybroek appreciates the idea of objects that evolve with each household and its inhabitants. Tin as such, unfolds its tactile characteristics by creating a natural patina over time. Intrinsically, the objects mature over time with the household it is residing in. Both walnut and solid glass, applied in several objects, fulfil a complementary role to the tin shapes, creating a play in materiality.
