Matrix is a home accessories collection inspired by the Bernadotte-collection for Georg Jensen. The distinctive seven-piece series includes two vases (a cylindrical and a square version), two bowls, and a serving tray, all crafted from mirrored stainless steel.
The collection is united by a square grid pattern, a delicate metal matrix that is both decorative and functional. The metal perforations allow for flowers to be installed individually or in small clusters through the geometric slots, creating a contrast between the minimalistic, geometrical shapes of the collection and the organic shape of nature. When not in use, the vases make for beguiling and graphic stand-alone objects.
Lining the exterior of the tray and serving as a base for the bowls, the matrix grid adds lightness and transparency to the collection, supplementing each items’ individual functionality with an undeniable sculptural quality.
