Irthi Oud x Metal Design Labs Collection - Midkhan I $6,618>

Irthi x Adi Toch Oud x Metal Design Labs Collection For the “Oud x Metal” Design Lab, Irthi collaborated with UK-based, V&A acquired and Loewe shortlisted artist, Adi Toch, to produce a series of contemporary metal Oud oil containers and Oud wood incense burners inspired by Islamic metalwork aesthetics. The hand-made vessels use traditional silversmithing techniques with experimental surface texturing and patination. Irthi’s Bidwa trainees* learned how to texture and colour the metal as part of the design lab, and contributed to the final products. The incense burners (Midkhans in Arabic) are wide and open to help disperse the scent of the burning Oud, while the Oud oil containers are smaller and cover and protect its content.
