In keeping with Malouin’s desire for process-driven design, the “Extrusion” series (commissioned by Carwan Gallery in Beirut) explores the traditional crafts of intarsia and lathe turning, which originated around 1200 BC in the Middle East. Highly detailed yet simple, this bowl is a blend of old and new. Canadian-born Malouin attended Eindhoven’s famed Design Academy and set up his own studio in London after working for Tom Dixon.
