BENWU Studios is a multi-disciplinary design agency specializing in product, set and interior design. The studios was founded in New York in 2012 by interior architect Ge Wei and Product Designer Qiyun Deng. They have since expanded and now have four more members of the team.
I had been thinking about different ways in which i could add colour to materials and even use it to manipulate various substrates. I’ve had a few ideas of my own but i tend to scroll pinterest for further inspiration. I came across this particular image by BENWU Studios called ‘twig vessel’ and i was immediately intrigued.
‘ The aim of this project was to find out the potential of the material and visualize the beauty of the nature.’
I like how they talk about having ‘unpredictable outcomes’ as this is something i also enjoy when experimenting. I love the contrast in colour between the luminous green and the light, grainy wood but also between each material. The contrasting materials is definitely something i wish to explore and this has really inspired me to do some small experiments of my own.
