Dinosaur Designs gleaned inspiration from the ocean’s sublime qualities and dynamic hues for the collection of homewares it has aptly titled Swim. Cerulean, mineral, cobalt, mint, chalk swirl, and leaf dominate the selection’s vivid palette, with silver accents featured throughout. The pigments are applied in a manner that resembles natural maritime phenomena, including curlicued currents and turbulent rushes. The collection’s forms are robust, possessing an organic appearance with slightly uneven surfaces and intentionally imperfect shapes. These bowls, serving plates, and platters are a captivating accompaniment to intimate social events where the finer details are paramount.
