Throughout history, the water pitcher and basin have been objects of necessity. Pour represents a nostalgic look at the objects and activities of times past. Taking its design inspiration from traditional enamelware, the pitcher and basin set is characterised by a structural contrast between the two vessels. The cast-porcelain pitcher, stained in soft earthen tones, both complements and contrasts with the rough stoneware basin.
Oslo design studio günzler.polmar was founded in 2011 by Sara Polmar and Victoria Günzler, who met while studying architecture and furniture design at Oslo National Academy of the Arts. Together with Sverre Uhnger, they also established Klubben, the international Norwegian design initiative, the same year.
Everyday objects and traditional craft tech-niques are Victoria’s main sources of inspiration, whereas Sara emphasises playfulness in her pro-cess. Since founding their studio, günzler.polmar’s work has been exhibited in Oslo, Stockholm, London, Paris, New York and Los Angeles.
