Carl Noonan: Interlace Series Rings
In INTERLACE, Carl Noonan rebels against his perfectionist tendency to create design objects that are identical to one another and instead embrace the quirks that appear in nature and the handmade.
The collection is inspired by his desire to learn from the design practice of the Great Creator. As humans, we are all the same genus, however, the outworking of our genetics leads to beautiful abnormalities that mean no human being is the same as another.
The 3D-printed titanium and cobalt chrome base rings represent the precise, rational design that sets each species apart from others – the elements that make a tree a tree and a human a human – while the organic precious metal symbolise the blemishes, decay and idiosyncrasies that make us unique.
