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.
