Lydn’s exaggerated ripple is representative of both water and sound. This platter is designed to capture a stylised moment in time, its form creates a sense of movement in an otherwise static material. The name comes from the Cornish word for lake, reflecting the designer’s heritage.
Melbourne-based Cornish native Thomas Coward is the Creative Director of New Volumes. Established in 2008, his studio works across a range of disciplines, exploring both commercial and personal objectives. From Royal Commissions to exclusive private residences in the USA, Canada, the Middle East and extensively throughout Europe, Coward has become recognised for his considered aesthetic and approach. His work is informed by the premise that the design process is not solely solving physical problems, it is also about exploring the ongoing relationships between products, people and spaces. This can create unique outcomes with often hidden qualities that reveal themselves over time.
