Evocative of a volcanic crater, Undara is a fruit bowl with a simple form yet a striking presence. At 394mm in diameter, its large surface area is distinct in every piece thanks to Elba’s unique grain. Its continuous curve is accentuated with a precision sculpted rim.
Melbourne-based designer Nick Rennie takes inspiration from our interaction with everyday items to develop products that are precise, simple and made to be enjoyed. For Rennie, design is a shared process, the finished product owing equally to the vision of a manufacturer and the needs of a user. His designs breathe new life in to the repetition of domesticity in a way that engages the user and elicits an emotional reaction.
Not only does Rennie enjoy a comprehensive knowledge of materials and technology, but he continually strives to explore their limitations.
