Neo Vessel by Apparatus Studio

The Neo Collection distills the visual language of ceremonial objects to its simplest forms. The collection explores function, the vessels to carry, and the lantern to illuminate, capturing a sense of primitive utility that conjures ancient rites. In contrast, starkly modern forms are rendered in solid Italian marble. Commanding proportions, expressed in a material that has historically signifies strength and permanence, befit these artifacts of the future.

I like the relationship between the two materials and how the bronze bowl inserts into the solid marble base. The high quality polished surfaces and heavy materials enforce the concept of strength. This product is functional yet is more of a detractive piece due to the expensive materials. The thing that makes this piece beautiful is how well crafted and procise circular form.
