Argentinian designer Cristián Mohaded materialises the complexities of elephant’s skin in a series of morphological vessels.

Elephant is a collection of very unique pieces, defined by a soft and textured language. They result from the material exploration and investigation that characterise Cristián Mohaded’s work. Those jars are the first objects from the limited edition of the Elephant project, where each piece is created and shaped from the intuition and the manipulation of the material, making colour and texture the protagonists in each one of the pieces.

Its random and asymmetrical shape results from the joining of PVC edge bands rolls, which come in different widths, colours and textures; giving birth to this collection of vases that seem to be in constant movement and transformation.

Irregular and random joining forms overlapping textures which characterise an elephant’s skin, colour contrasts are achieved from the material’s existing colouration. The limited editions series features a broad range of shapes and heights.
