Description

Research on the island of Lesvos revealed the broadness of forms of the landscape and people’s activities. The ancient dry stack of Lesvos depicts this variety: unique carved stones sit on a custom spot in the structure and seem irregular on their own. However, as a group they create a peculiar sense of harmony and an irregular pattern, functioning both on an engineering and aesthetic level.
These observations were the insights to design the Sea Dry Stack magnets, a set of five magnets uniquely shaped to outline the island of Lesvos once properly arranged.
Material: metal & magnet
