'Moscow Bowl' by SashaDasha Design presented during Moscow Design Week

Earlier last week, we have been invited to attend the second edition of Moscow Design Week and that’s where we have spotted this series of two bowls and a low table created by the Russian twin sister design duo, SashaDasha Design. Characterised by expressive, irregular lines and asymmetric forms, each of the lacquered-metal objects is in fact a meticulous, 3-dimensional depiction of the administrative district of one of the three European capitals: Moscow, Paris and Copenhagen.

From the designers:

 

‘During the project research, many variations of the structure of the city were found, such as natural landscapes, historical developments, road networks, general plans of the city and districts. Bowl Moscow is also based on the administrative districts of the city, like the Paris Bowl. However, the city plans are different, therefore the structure is radically different.’

‘Each surface of the bowl is a district of Paris. The inner surface is engraved with information about the city’s districts.’

‘The underground scheme was taken as a basis for the module. By applying a kaleidoscope method to it, the copy and paste effect resulted in a structure which forms the basis/structure of the table. The table has been engraved with representations of the underground stations. Recognizable silhouettes are seen on the table, which represents the subway map of the city.’

The ‘Moscow’ bowl, along with SashaDasha’s latest table lamp design ‘Red Line’ were presented against a backdrop of exposed-brick walls at Russia’s first, recently-restored Сentre of Contemporary Art, Winzavod.
