After successful projects from Tokyo to New York, Beijing to London, the Nachtmann NEXTGEN Project has ventured to the land down under. Out of 10 aspiring designers from top Australian university, University of Technology, Sydney, one student was selected for his ability to reimagine strength as delicacy and tradition as modern elegance.
Twenty two year-old Oliver Bryant now introduces JULES, a four-piece range, into the global Nachtmann NEXTGEN collection. His trip to Germany in the early stages of the NEXTGEN Project inspired his ultimate design. “Jet turbines spoke to me because of the inherent tension between their precise, intricate appearance, and their potential for power and force,” says Oliver.
“When in flight, a jet gathers and distorts the air, and this is mirrored by the way the curves of the pattern gather and refract light.”
