The Now and Then project is a result of many new symbiotic collaborations. A relationship formed between metal and clay, and new partnership between architect/product designer Natascha Madeiski and silversmith/jewelry designer Linnie Mclarty.
Inspired by the earth they were surrounded by during an archeological dig in Lebanon, they created an anthropomorphic collection that references architectural and historical elements. Like little soldiers, the objects are meant to keep the precious treasure inside safe. Four lidded containers in four different sizes and colors each have a metal accent. Made from porcelain, each is also paired with either a brass spoon, sieve, fork, or handle and comes in white, grey, salmon and green.
The collection was debuted during London Design Week, complete with an archaeological-themed display.
