industrial design


Part of our ongoing exploration around materials, processes and color, MC5 is a series of desktop vessels that act as sophisticated, decorative organization. Utilizing our foundry, we start by cutting simple, machine made tubes to various sizes, then hone the ends by hand, and bake on an enamel finish in a selection of colors drawn from nature. Finally, we create leather disks (subtly engraved with our lovely branch logo) to cap the tubes.

Each size roughly suits a particular need--short for coins, medium for your keys,  tall for your favorite writing pen. When placed side by side they create a geometric landscape that brings  beautiful order to chaos.
