Parison is a glass pendant, mouth blown from a mixture of coloured and clear glass.
It’s surface is a consistent gradient of opaque Black or White at the top, to transparent at the base. The underside surface contains slanted facets, creating a beautiful contradiction between fluid and jagged. Housed in the neck of the pendant, an LED bulb creates a soft warm glowing fixture. Ideal for home or contract use.
Cheshire Architects move organically from huge institutional and urban master-planning work to the digital fabrication of bespoke door handles and the hand-finishing of furniture. This is a practice formed around the depth of its ideologies, rather than the thinness of styles and project types. They operate across fields of luxury and poverty, newness and age, roughness and refinement, running parallel programs of research, writing, lecturing, publishing and university teaching. Cheshire was founded in New Zealand in 2004.
