Strong industrial lines speak to sculptural curves in this steel and glass interpretation of contemporary calligraphy. Creating visual pathways that lead the viewer in and around forged steel curves, the Graffiti incorporates fluid movement with heirloom aesthetics. It is as functional as it is edgy in its refined urban appeal.
Strong industrial lines speak to the Grafitti Pendant’s sculptural curves in this steel and glass interpretation of contemporary calligraphy.According to designer, Paul Marr-Hilliard, “There was first a process of experimentation with small metal sculptures. I had the idea of movement through a volume of space—as if scrawling out or painting a complicated letter form with a large brush. In the slower turns, the brush stroke gets fatter then accelerates in a different direction and thins out.” Paul goes on to say, “The end design became smooth and free flowing. The lamping feels a bit industrial, jutting in and connecting the forged metal ‘calligraphy’.”
