Phoenician by Adam Nathaniel Furman for Beit Collective
Dezeen Showroom: London-based designer Adam Nathaniel Furman has created a collection of recycled glass vases and tumblers for Lebanese homeware label Beit Collective.
The Phoenician collection includes a pair of drinking glasses called Blue Quay and a vase called Fluted Buoy. The range is made from recycled glass using a traditional Phoenician glassblowing technique.
"I created this line to echo the aquatic and ancient environment of Phoenician cities," said Furman.
"I wanted these pieces to represent a treasure washed up on the beach, coming from ancient civilisations lost for millennia."
Each item in Furman's Phoenician collection comes in turquoise, navy or clear – drawing on the aquatic colours associated with Phoenicians.
Phoenicia was an ancient coastal civilisation that originated in what is now called Lebanon. Many members of its society were mariners in the navy.
Beit Collective called on glassblowing artisans who have worked in Lebanon for many generations to manufacture Furman's glass and vase designs.
In the making of the collection the artisans blew molten glass and then placed it into a custom-made cast-iron mould that resulted in the irregularly-shaped Phoenician range.
