This set of six cork coasters can be artfully arranged to form a tiled trivet! The illusion of 3D through color and geometry allows for endless permutations, encouraging playful mosaic building on your table. This is an ideal housewarming gift for those with discerning taste or as decoration for your own intimate gatherings.
Founded in 2012 by Danny Giannella and Tammer Hijazi, Bower is a Brooklyn-based contemporary furniture and product design studio. These two young men came up with the idea of combining fine woodworking with experimentation to create pieces that look to the future with a nod to the past. Tammer and Danny love finding intriguing characteristics in anything from plants and animals, to toys from their childhood and dreaming up completely different functional applications for them, often ending up with delightfully surprising results. This process is their happy place, experimenting and exploring a detail that has caught their interest without being sure how it will manifest itself in the end. They believe, as we do at Musart, that successful designs should be simple, functional, beautiful and playful!
Danny is from New Haven, Connecticut and studied Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design. Tammer is from Washington DC and is a self-taught designer and woodworker. Bower Studio won the Inhabitat Green Design Award during the 2013 Design Week in NYC.
