Calligraphy with Conscience



Shipping within Wednesday 29 May

The translucent resins created for the Elmo Ambiente provide a window onto the mechanics of writing – and a vision of alternative production. Its recycled finishes are disarmingly honest – offering a new intimacy, and a reminder of how everything we touch is part of a larger narrative. Our collaboration with artisanal studio, Smile Plastics, revisits a 1920s classic – and rethinks it for the 2020s.
