British designer Tim Sharpe founded Octate in 2000. The San Francisco design studio designs and produces elegantly simple vases, candleholders, table settings, and lighting.
Octate uses materials such as milled aluminum and bent ply in their designs. The gentle curves and spare lines lend an organic feel to items such as the Bolo serving bowl. It’s not only beautiful, it’s practical, functioning equally well as either a fruit bowl or a place for holding your keys and the other bits and bobs of daily life.
We look forward to seeing more of this local artisan’s work.
