First designed as knobs for the ‘Collectionist’ cabinet by Bartoli Design, alone or in compositions they also fit on a wall as art elements or coathangers. The ‘Sesel’ organic shapes may be fixed with several orientations around their attachment axis.
“These objects are inspired by the Seychelles’ granite rock formations (‘Sesel’ is the local name of the Seychelles archipelago) and by our passion for boulders and stones; they are the reinterpretation of climbing grips, to serve another purpose. We created the original 1:1 models used for making the moulds. The production process is all manual: brass is casted with the sculptors’ lost-wax technique then worked, brushed and polished. Small pits, left by air bubbles, and irregular handmade brushings are visible on the final objects.” (Bartoli Design)
