SAP Series with Ladies & Gentlemen Studio

Through a shared passion for exploring materials, Kaarem and Ladies & Gentlemen Studio introduce SAP, a series of vessels inspired by the practice of displaying plant arrangements — a fleeting attempt to capture living beauty.

Nhựa cây (sap in Vietnamese) literally translates to “plastic plant," or in this case, a resin form encapsulating moments of nature and time.

SAP uses hand-cast resin to encapsulate a swatch of original Kaarem fabric fluidly suspended within the form. Each is individually cut, draped, and cast, creating a unique expression of the materials interacting and becoming one.

Commissioned by Sight Unseen for Field Studies, a benefit exhibition at Sight Unseen OFFSITE 2018. Net proceeds from the sale of this item are donated to Aid to Children Without Parents. Purchase available at 1stdibs.com

“The collaborative challenge became how we could celebrate the qualities of both rigid and soft materials to show a bit about each studio in one piece.” - Dylan David of Ladies & Gentleman Studio
