The Low Tide Collection by Wang & Söderström consist of three vessels made from Jesmonite;
Favia Vessel, Sebae Vessel & Lobo Vessel.
This was part of their exhibition Tides, first presented during Milan Design Week 2019.
The collection represents the kind of things that appear when the ocean is pulled away during a low tide. Lifeforms that are shaped to survive in underwater conditions but also sometimes inhabit this otherworldly and temporary landscape that is a low tide.
As objects, the collection has a similar relation to ‘the surface’. Whereas the sea lifeforms crosses the surface between ocean and land these objects transverse from the digital to the physical. In a way the vessels are physical remains from a digital ocean.
