Above is Coe&Waito’s public space installation for Come Up To My Room 2009 at the Gladstone Hotel.
The chandelier entitled Nest by coe&waito is an ethereal and abstract expression of a birdâ€™s nest. It is omposed of delicate curved porcelain sticks cradling a soft light source.
coe&waito is a ceramic art and design studio in Toronto, Canada, which creates porcelain objects inspired by natural elements, distilled to simple elegant forms, with occasional touches of whimsy and wonder. Alissa Coe and Carly Waito began working with porcelain after graduating from the Industrial Design program at the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2005. They design and produce an evolving collection of porcelain objects including functional tabletop items, small sculptural pieces, lighting, and large-scale installations of HUB Design Studio with integrated storage and replaceable components are the primary focus.
