Kacper Hamilton at Saffron - Coco London
“Product designer Kacper Hamilton came into our studio in London to talk about what makes him tick. Recognising his inspirations such as the theatre of his religious upbringing, traditional schooling at the idiosyncratic Christ's Hospital to a world where Google might provide the creative leap, he shared with us his love of stories and making products that tell these tales in new ways. For example, the port glasses from 'Bishop of Norwich' insist on being constantly passed around, they can't be put down except into their heavy brass holders. The inspiration was the 19th century signatory who was notorious for dropping off at the dinner table.
And our favourite piece? Probably the wine glass from his Seven Deadly Glasses project that symbolised Wrath. Lethal!”
