Vide Poche, French for "empty pocket," is designed with your everyday essentials in mind. Perfect for safely stowing items like keys, coins, and your phone, it provides a convenient place to discard your day at the door. Crafted, polished, and finished in Sydney, Australia, Vide Poche is made from solid aluminum, a material known for its durability and sleek aesthetic. The process of sand casting is employed, focusing equally on the form of the object and the negative space it creates. This attention to detail offers an intriguing design feature - the dish is reversible, encouraging consideration of both sides of the object.
Like all finely crafted items, Vide Poche is produced in small batches, leading to subtle variations from piece to piece. Such nuances may include slight pour ripples or surface pitting, lending unique charm to each item. Vide Poche arrives with a bright finish that, over time, will oxidize and darken to reveal a distinctive patina. This natural evolution enhances the character of the piece, while a simple metal polish can restore the original shine when desired. Designed with utility and aesthetics in mind, Vide Poche is more than a storage solution; it's a piece of functional art. Its uniqueness and evolving appearance make it a compelling choice for design professionals and architects looking for an everyday item that marries practicality with design finesse.
