‘Poly’ bowls by Martin Žampach

Young, Prague-based designer and founder of the webzine Martin Žampach has created this series of hexagonal bowls made of innovative, lightweight-yet-resistant material composed of veneer and cork. Developed in various sizes and proportions, the bowls were recently showcased as part of Colabseries project during this year’s edition of DMY Berlin.

More about the series:


‘A set of bowls made using specially developed sandwich material for lightweight but firm structure. Sandwich is made out of veneer and cork layers. Flexible build materials allow for extreme shaping of the segments. When all parts are locked to form the bowl the structure gets its strength. They fit together in several ways to form illusional 2D/3D ornaments.’
