Wabi Sabi Bowl
The simple beauty of two elements
The Japanese art of aesthetics teaches us that true beauty lies in the imperfection, random nature and variability of things. For a European concerned with design in a completely different cultural context, this finding will be a big shock. We are always looking for quite the opposite: perfection, durability and immobility are common values for us. Maybe the time has come to rethink that view. Maybe the old masters of the Far East have not yet had the last word.
This time we did not sit at computers or play with mathematical curves then produced by machines. We tried a new, simple and natural way of working. We decided to breathe new life into old objects. We placed them in a different context. We allowed sensitivity and chance to work. The resulting design is simple and beautiful. It retains a huge amount of pure energy. A steel bowl in an oak stand demonstrates a simple shape and principle. We allowed two different elements to influence us—balance and tension at once. The coincidental and inexact nature enhance the beauty of such things.
