CUM­BRIA CRYS­TAL

Home Journal - - DESIGN / INSIGHT -

Wright & Smith is con­stantly adding new ar­ti­sans to its ros­ter. One re­cent re­cruit is Cum­bria Crys­tal, the last pro­ducer of com­pletely hand­blown and hand-cut English crys­tal in the UK. Each piece is crafted us­ing tech­niques that have barely changed since the Ro­man era and its wares have been em­braced by royal fam­i­lies and fea­tured fre­quently on the big screen, most re­cently in Os­car-win­ning movie Dark­est Hour. As well as clas­sic de­signs, Wright & Smith also car­ries the con­tem­po­rary Boo­gie Woo­gie col­lec­tion de­vel­oped by award-win­ning Hong Kong­born, Lon­don-based de­signer Peter Ting.

Wright & Smith一直努力搜羅出眾的匠人,而Cum­bria Crys­tal是最近招攬的一員。全人手製造的英國水晶品牌以羅馬時期流傳下來的技術製作,盡受皇室成員擁戴。製品不時在大螢幕出現,最近更在獲獎無數的奧斯卡電影《黑暗對峙》作為標誌道具。設計公司亦引入由英藉港人得獎設計師丁念祖(Peter Ting)創作的Boo­gie Woo­gie系列,盡現時尚雅緻之美。

LIV­ING ON Keep­ing dy­ing arts alive is one of Wright & Smith's mis­sions, whether that's hand-blown crys­tal in the UK, or tra­di­tional tex­tile weav­ing and dye­ing in China.延續精神致力保存古老工藝技術是Wright & Smith的首要任務,納入英國手工製水晶玻璃和中國漂染紡織品均為最佳例子。
