focusing on handcrafted techniques, while utilizing refined and high quality materials, london-based designer simon hasan has designed and created a collection of objects ranging from bar stools, glass and tableware.

 

 

presented during maison et objet paris, the array of items have different functionalities but all exhibit an interplay of material contrasts between glass, brass and hand-tanned, vegetable leather. ‘I’m really interested in how certain materials and objects become a part of our lives’ comments hasan  ‘I choose materials that give contrast and depth – leather will age and patinate beautifully over time and with use, whilst the glass will remain clear and bright. I have sought a similar contrast in the slice candlesticks that use bright polished brass or copper which is also oxidized to give a translucent black patina alongside the bright metal.’

with the ‘wrap’ tealight, pendant and ‘slice’ series being the british designer’s latest products, the combination of leather and brass invokes a warm and intimate quality, making the objects a subtle statement and adaptable to any setting, whether commercial or residential.
