Volumes is the story of time & space; geometric forms intertwined with crystal light complimented with rich smokey aromas.
With a nod to the Memphis Design aesthetic; the geometric figures of Art Deco, the colour palette of new Pop Art, and a touch of 1950s kitsch; Volumes explores the aromas and nostalgia of a dusty highway.
These candles and diffusers are above all, home decor. A delicate balance of function and decoration, suitable to be re-purposed creating a timeless art object in your home. Because even an empty vase can be art. The shapes exhibit luxury and opulence with one-of-a-kind hand blown glass.
As a group, they range in volume. As a shape, they are all volumes of revolution. And as a collection, each volume is part of the larger group.
The packaging accentuates the geometric. Volumes look at the box as not just a vessel to protect but to represent the object inside. The undecorated die-cut outer sleeve allows all variants to illustrate internal boxes to illuminate through the shape.
