Arkeuthos by Marco Barazzuoli for BLoft
Updated: Dec 8, 2019
Arkeuthos is a collection of vases in which archaic forms are reworked through the use of evocative materials, analysing their use and their history.
The juniper wood, Arkeuthos in Greek, is the inspirational material for a temporal journey on the coasts of the Mediterranean, where for centuries it has accompanied with its perfume the rituals of the peoples who lived there.
The shapes are hinted at, hidden in the imperfection of the wood, as if they were incomplete finds just found. The wood, worked on the lathe and then burned, welcomes and engages on polished steel elements, in a set of material and shapes contrasts.
