Kindred Spirits by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio & Kaarem
Updated: Dec 6, 2019
Sight Unseen approached the studio with a simple brief for their project ‘Field Studies ‘: collaborate with a respected creative to create an original object to benefit charity. L&G responded by expanding upon their previous collaborations with clothing brand KAAREM, who’s focus on materiality, form, and movement in space is perfectly aligned with our ethos. Their mission was to transform the materiality and function of Kaarem’s textiles while preserving its magically etherial spirit. Through the method of resin casting, they were able to achieve a feeling of still lightness by suspending the Kaarem textile magically in a clear block form creating a series of one-of-a-kind Ikebana bases and vases.
