Discover new aesthetics

With the project Ensō, we set out on a voyage of discovery for aesthetics and methods that were not prioritized in our classic industrial design education.
Wabi-Sabi - the Japanese-influenced aesthetic concept on perception and beauty guided this work. Our goal was to expand our understanding of aesthetics by adding facets of imperfection, asymmetry, and the beauty of the ephemeral in our repertoire. The choice of materials and methods allowed us to expand our horizons and realize our intention. Ceramics, raku firing and kintsugi were the formative components shaping our work.
