We love the emotional impact of artist Alexa Lixfeld's objects, at once extraordinary yet simple and pure.
Use the Cylindrical Vase to display flowers or store needful things; the Cylindrical Container for small items, and the Cylindrical Tray is perfect for serving, for fruit still lifes, or as a tealight holder.
A former model, Alexa Lixfeld runs her independent design studio out of Hamburg, Germany. Here, using a wide range of materials from ceramics and plastic to cloth and glass, she specialises in unique, handmade items whose mere existence would be impossible in the context of industrial production.
After a ten-year career as a model, Alexa Lixfeld switched to design, studying in Germany and at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Now based in Hamburg, her design company boasts a kaleidoscopic portfolio, ranging from concrete and porcelain tableware to cashmere and a fragrance collection.
Alexa is committed to keeping alive craft techniques in communities around the world, collaborating with artisans in Sri Lanka, Japan, Czech Republic, Vietnam, Nepal and China. “My work is essentially about bringing together what is already there, but which remained disconnected. I’m less a product designer than a process designer, a facilitator, someone who makes things possible.”
