Victor Montour – Brik

Deeply rooted in the world of architecture, clay bricks have always been appreciated for their structural qualities. However, this humble building material has many other qualities that are just waiting to be revealed.

The Brik vase collection aims to elevate the brutalist language of this archetype through artisanal processes. Working hand-in-hand with ceramists and specialised manufactures, this project acts as a meeting point between these two figures of design – a combination of mechanical precision and artisanal singularity. This collection of vases also questions our reflexes as creators and consumers. What if we designed novelty out of banality? Can we learn to recognise the beauty of normality?
