Designed as part of a second year project in collaboration with craft furniture and lighting company Douglas and Bec, Shiri Friedler’s organic bowl collection “Split” is among AUT’s finalist Best Award’s entries.

Each of the three bowls explores a different combination of metal and timber in a unique flowing form evocative of water or a rolling landscape. The design of Split was driven by a desire to create fluid contours from traditionally solid materials.

The largest bowl combines American Black Walnut with a Bronze interior. The medium bowl pairs Iroko timber with a Bronze-Copper alloy. The smallest bowl is made from American White Ask coupled with a Brass-Copper alloy.

As well as being nominated as a Best Awards finalist, Shiri’s work received recognition in a people’s choice award competition run by Douglas and Bec as part of their collaboration with AUT.
