Modern Aesthetic | Functional and Minimal Pieces by PTang Studio – PTang Studio joined Covet Collection Design Editions to create a functional, minimal set of pieces perfect for a modern aesthetic. Using simple and identifiable shapes in its pieces, where ergonomic is blended with design to provide an instinctual relationship with every item and its user. The living series capsule collection was mainly designed with the easy forms and textures of natural elements in mind, where Henges play a major role. These structures set in stone or timber circles are the cohesive element throughout the full collection, hence its main inspiration being one of the most recognizable historical monuments in the world: the Stonehenge.
With a sublime influence of Japanese elements like the Tome-Ishi, a small stone “bean” used in Japanese zen gardens, is a touch of sophistication that elevates this collection to a new level of exclusivity and uniqueness. A high sense of nature and the Earth itself, allows the Stonehenge Capsule Collection to become through its simple shapes and natural hues a truly superb contemporary curation.
