Notch Vessel is beautifully concise, with its concave form simply machined from a solid Lava stone block to create a niche for objects to nestle into.
Notch provides a sculptural yet functional accent to your workspace and is available in 2 sizes.
Buzao worked with the people of Hainan Island in the South China Sea, with its vast deposits of volcanic lava, to better understand this humble yet beautiful material. Buzao recognised the potential of Lava stone, so prolifically used by the people of Hainan, and how design could significantly enhance its appearance and value.
Lava stone is formed when liquid lava solidifies as it cools. A characteristic of this organic process is that pores form in the stone, often with other minerals embedded within. These natural, irregular textures make each object unique.
Buzao is a radical offshoot of Bentu. The Buzao name means ‘I don’t know’ in Chinese, to signify that all true exploration has an unknown destination.
