Free Receptacle

UNLIMITED

‘Volutes’ series is made of unvarnished, untreated, raw egyptian alabaster also called pharaonic alabaster to differentiate it from other kinds of onyx marbles.
Exclusively introduced at ‘Over the Counter’ showroom during the Beirut design fair 2018  and ‘House of Today’ biennale, the series examines the energy of movement and sensuality  inspired by the stone’s ancient healing mystic and soothing swirl like motifs. “the idea was to find an emblematic egyptian mineral and use it to create contemporary objects that would build bridges between past and present, craft and design, earthly and ethereal...”. Says Omar Chakil. ‘Volutes’ is entirely hand made in Egypt merging his egyptian roots with his French aesthetic heritage through sobriety and grace.
