Embracing Touch

Embracing Touch is a project about designer’s relation with the works and designer’s presence in them.

Apollo 8 Command Module

The NASA of the 1960s was the inspiration behind the universe of Woodlabo.

The conquest of space was built on the same values we find in Woodlabo’s creations: meeting the challenge, practising the highest standards, savoir-faire, rigour, innovation and perseverance. Woodlabo’s lights were conceived from this need to dream and to make others dream. Top of the range and out-of-the-ordinary, Woodlabo’s creations tell a story, a story about men and women who, their eyes fixed on the stars, never gave up on their dream to reach the unreachable. The lights created by Woodlabo remind us day after day of this absolute necessity. Woodlabo advocates a Made in Earth production, which combines the finest skills and materials from different countries. 

Together we shall achieve the impossible: the conquest of space!

A Tale of Plant & Pot

A Tale of Plant & Pot is a dialogue between Adam Silverman and Kohei Oda and their work, two talented makers that share a mutual love of the beauty to be found in the perfectly imperfect. The strangely beautiful glazes and finishes of Adam Silverman’s pots are both challenging and rewarding in equal measure. For A Tale of Plant & Pot he focused on that most basic element of nature: the earth, knowing that each pot would then be presented to Kohei Oda to complete the story that he had begun. Kohei Oda’s philosophy has always been to work with plants that have personality, using rare and grafted cactus (connecting two pieces of living plant tissue together to grow as one composite plant) creating hybrid specimens that capture the beauty and potential in each perceived imperfection.

Umbra Shift

Umbra Shift is an extension of Umbra that focuses on contemporary influences in the design community. For more than 30 years, Umbra has broken the mould by creating entirely new categories that apply thoughtful design to everyday items. Umbra Shift revisits these roots with a roster of established, emerging, and in–house designers who share Umbra’s passion to re-think things, designing personal objects they themselves would want to give or use at home. The result is a collection that expresses diverse points of view, yet sits together with a shared belief in ideas that are functional, familiar and forward thinking.
