Simplicity to highlight complexity - Bang's minimal form creates a surface without beginning or end, allowing its textured lava stone-scape to be admired from any angle.
Bang may be used in singular form, a linear arrangement or as a chandelier of multiple pendants, suitable for residential, hospitality and commercial settings.
Lava stone is formed when lava solidifies as it comes into contact with water or air. A resulting characteristic of this natural process is the large pores in the stone with other minerals and crystals often embedded within. This natural, irregular life of the stone is to be celebrated.
Made from Lava stone, machined and hand polished. Brass or Black Anodised Aluminium fixings.
BUZAO [pronounced Bu-tsao] represents the young, rebellious and spirited. BUZAO engages in a process of unhindered experimentation, free from the intent to create, focusing on presenting its personality through the exploration of natural materials. BUZAO accepts the ego of the fundamental 'self', exposing its essence, unchanged, and celebrates it. BUZAO creates through amplifying what is already there, to reveal and enhance the innate self of the material, letting the material guide the design and dictate the outcome.
Launched in 2017 as a vehicle for the exploration of natural materials, BUZAO is an offshoot of the pioneering, experimental and internationally acclaimed design studio, BENTU.
