As in most of her work, Marre Moerel has used her particular technique to obtain high-end conceptual pieces and with Hilo, the designer has pushed the boundaries of ceramics to it;s extreme limits obtaining vases with high-end crafmanship, strong character and intuitive emotions making something which in theory it isn’t suppose to be possible. A collection of high and low vases where the more decorative and emotional aspect comes to light in the colored ones here the dyed ceramic thread has strong references to that textile and yarn, adding layers of warmth, intimacy, and delicacy.

Almost as if historians, Studio Formafantasma investigated the pre-bakelite period, discovering unexpected textures, feelings and technical possibilities offered by natural polymers extracted from plants or animal-derivatives. The designers researched and hunted for information, digging into the 18th and 19th centuries, when scientists began experimenting draining plants and animals in search for plasticity. The selected Botanica pieces on display at Aybar Gallery for this occassion are also part of the Permanent Collection at Museum of Modern Art, MoMA New York.
