Product Launch

Product designer Ariane Prin takes the metal dust left from key cutting and other metalworking workshops local to her studio to mix with water-based resin and plaster. RUST is a collection of trays, pots and vases that slowly oxidise with time, and give way to unique, unpredictable patterns.

Product designer Ariane Prin to launch RUST, the studio’s first homeware collection for the London Design Festival 2015.

The RUST range is composed of pots, trays, vases and jewellery boxes created by mixing metal dust with plaster and Jesmonite. No two items in RUST are the same: the collection is entirely hand-made and the metal dust oxidation gives each product a unique texture, varying in colour and intensity.

RUST is a continuation of Ariane Prin’s line of work, inspired by the desire to create new form and utility out of commonly disregarded waste materials.

Ariane Prin says about her process:

"It takes us about three days to complete a piece in RUST. That is if you don’t consider the high variability of the rusting process — I often reject and recycle pieces in the production when I’m not happy with the result. But every time I go to my studio I’m excited to see the objects’ changing textures. It’s like each one of them was alive and mutating with time".

And:

"The shapes I chose for the RUST range are extremely simple. I wanted to let the material and its visual articulation be the heroes of this series of products".

In conjunction with the launch, Ariane Prin’s studio will introduce a new website and online store, PRIN London (www.prin.in).
