Object of desire: Campbell-Rey, London
Perfect geometry meets striking materials and shades – here’s why Campbell-Rey’s glass and stoneware pieces are the talk of the table.
Founded by Duncan Campbell and Charlotte Rey – the artsy duo who met while co-editing Acne Studios’ cult publication Acne Paper together – this award-winning design partnership is a jack of all trades. From interior design to product production, they approach every creative project with an impressive savoir-faire to achieve what many can’t: a modern aesthetic that honours traditional craftsmanship.
Their latest collection of glassware and tabletop objects showcases this approach effortlessly – while also highlighting the pair’s love for quality materials. Rosanna is a Murano glassware collection of octagonal glassware pieces, from tumblers to carafes, in boldly striped colourways. It’s the product of a year’s experimentation with a Murano-based glass manufacturer, and the unusual geometric shapes and bright colours achieved are a testament to their hard work. They’re made by hand – in a technique that puts a modern spin on traditional techniques – so no two are exactly alike. And to complement this deft display of skill and colour, their second new collection – Petit Thierry – pushes the boundaries of stone craftsmanship, blending Rosso Levanto marble and pink onyx using interlocking and split shapes. The interlocking salt and pepper set makes art at your table, and when combined with the octagonal Murano tumblers, will ensure your dinner party is the talk of the town.
