Second Object by Jorge Diego Etienne & Savvy Studio
Published on February 14, 2013
The Second Object, designed by Jorge Diego Etienne in collaboration with Savvy Studio for Casa Bosques, is a mug that continues to work with the ideals of the brand by amplifying the rituals suggested by nature.
Winter is a time for reflection. The cold weather evokes introspection, which translates into a need for mental and physical proximity. The Second Object is a personal item that’s kept close to its user during this process of contemplation.
The design is inspired by traditional Japanese lacquered cups, although in this case, a ceramic container holds hot liquids and is held by a wooden cup that helps disperse heat.
The ceramic piece keeps the same form of the pot from the First Object (more information below), while the sculpted wooden cup eliminates the need for a handle creating an even more intimate experience from the temperature, smells and sensations of the season.
The contrast of materials within the same object is another trait of each Casa Bosques object. With this, the wood will gracefully age contrasting with ceramic that keeps a pristine appearance through the years. Both components of the Second Object are produced at local workshops with an outstanding family tradition in Monterrey, Mexico.
Casa Bosques is an initiative by Savvy Studio, which aims to develop products and services of a permanent and sustained nature with a strong guiding concept through collaborations with experts of different fields. The concept behind Casa Bosques’ objects is strongly influenced by nature, which helps guide each project to reach it’s highest potential.
The project that joins the designer Jorge Diego Etienne collaboration Savvy study began with The First Object.
The First Object is a planter which proposes taking the time to coexist with nature during the summer. The object merges two worlds, the handcrafted clay pot produced in Oaxaca by Innovando la Tradicion, and a metal stanby carefully folded and detailed at industrial workshops in Monterrey.
