Simple, honest and drawn from the earth, terracotta is one of the world’s oldest art forms. A fundamentally pure material crafted from fire and clay, it has been used in homes and art as far back as 24,000 BC and yet still feels current today. Driven by a desire to explore the design potential of this timeless, natural material in a contemporary setting, Artedomus has launched New Volumes™ Collection 02; an eight-piece collection that challenges our preconceptions about a product we’re intimately familiar with.
New Volumes™ Collection 02, which is the second iteration in Artedomus’ New Volumes Collection series, brings together the extraordinary talents of a diverse group of Australian designers and creatives. Each was challenged to craft a unique furniture, lighting or homeware piece using a single material – terracotta. It pushes the boundaries of what’s possible in terms of function and form, and speaks to the way we live today.
