Thomas Eyck Hain
Thomas Eyck commissioned RaR to design and produce a new wall installation in porcelain: “Hain”. The collection consists of three tall porcelain trees combined with ‘fungi’ and is glazed in half-transparant green. The fungi can be used as a display. The full series has been produced in a limited and numbered edition of 10. Three smaller sets are made in an edition of 99. “Hain”, the poetic German word for “forest”, originated from the designers’ fascination for nature, art and architecture. This work combines the artistic structures of the flora, the 17th and 18th century Wunderkammer and the former use of consoles into a fascinating and magical object.
