The Pyra series is the latest collection from Toronto designer Shayne Fox. Inspired in part by ancient step pyramid architecture and the casting process itself, this series has a sleek and slight pyramidal form.
Great for modern, contemporary, traditional, industrial, and even art deco styling.
We love the weight, and the surface subtleties that result when molten bronze is cooled in sand molds and then hand finished.
Once cast, the pieces are tapped for bolts, and then tumbled to a supple satin matte. With a ‘living finish’, the pieces are unlacquered and will develop a patina over the years. This process can be embraced or polished away to bring out the luster of the natural bronze material. The finished pieces reflect the age old method by which they were made and with that comes the odd imperfection and subtle differences.
All designing and manufacturing takes place in Toronto, Canada, with Shayne Fox at the helm.
