Umbra Shift’s Above Home Floor Mat, a hand-woven mat with abstract illustrations. Meant to depict either a swimming pool or a suburban backyard seen from great heights.

This vase is a representation of the iconic bomb found in numerous comic strips and comedies. When a flower is placed in the vase the picture is complete, the fuse is lit. Thus, creating a contrast between urgency and tranquility.
The vases were created in collaboration with Dan Levy Studio in Manhattan. The black matte ‘glaze’ was achieved via numerous trials and eventually the development of a new technique, arriving to the desired matte yet satin finish. Subtle variations of tone and finish within each piece create a vitality that separates Levy's craftsmanship from that of factory mass production. Each vase is fitted with an engraved black anodized aluminum cap, milled on a four-axis CNC machine from billet to fit each vase precisely.

What appears to be a random construction is in fact a carefully composed arrangement of dowels that achieve maximum effectiveness for hanging and exceptional strength.
The idea being, to create an object and an experience where the purpose is not so apparent at first sight but is very clear once in context of its use. One should be able to stand several feet away and throw a hat or a scarf on it and it will remain where intended.
The rack is constructed from 19 individual hardwood dowels that are shaped on a five-axis CNC machine, navigated by a 3D cad drawing to fit together in perfect order. After construction, the rack is painted, and then coated with multiple layers of lacquer, much like a grand piano.
