NEOLIT SMALL By pulpo
Ceramic foam serving bowl
Smacking like a meteorite through the centre of your tablescape is a set of objects that explore the fields of science, material and culture. Inspired by the stars, but grounded in a hands-on approach to materiality; comes the Neolit collection of ceramic-covered foam objects by London-based duo Studio Furthermore.
This textural group - with an exterior mirroring the moons surface, and a near weightlessness to match - will transport you into a universe where everything is not as it seems. Heightening their connection to the stars is a process mirroring that of space missions from earth. Studio Furthermore has taken inspiration from NASA’s own use of ceramic foams to create pieces with depth and character. Each foam structure is then dipped in ceramic before being fired at 1200°C. Much like a comet entering the atmosphere, a little piece of space magic is left behind
Three monolithic bowls that will surely become a tabletop centrepiece, each piece built up from rings of foam prior to their ceramic makeover. With layers inviting you to touch, and a lightness defying their solid construction; Neolit is a bold collection full of intrigue and mystery. A conversation starter if we ever saw one.
Each piece is handmade in foam before being immersed in ceramic and baked. Streaks and other variations in size and colour are part of production processes, and not defects in the design or production.
