Swiss industrial designer Carlo Clopath studied industrial and product design in Lausanne.
After working at Cecilie Manz’ office and taking part in a residence at the Statens Værksteder for Kunst, he established his own practice in Switzerland.
Presented project Magasin is a collection of office and homeware products consisting of containers, vases and pedestals created for Zoom by Mobimex.
Carlo Clopath’s artistic approach lies on the pillars of simplicity and his objects are filled with symbolic meaning, evoking feelings and associations.
The project was inspired by the basic geometrical forms found in the kitchen and the offices, such as the form of food and the format A4. Featuring various materials, the series of objects are created of ash, glass and stone. The rounded edges create a soft minimalistic form for the objects, giving them a strong decorative appearance, while letting them fulfill their role as useful storage elements.
