Informed by skateboarding and music.
Fueled by an enthusiasm for product design and collector culture, West London lifestyle brand Vented has focused on homeware and accessories for its latest release.
London and its varied subcultures are used as inspiration for designs that are hand-cast using concrete in the West of the city. This is a technique that founder Josh Scott first used when creating “The Original”, a concrete skatepark that doubles up as an ashtray and art piece. The multi-purpose nature of this design is something that has continued to be a focus in the homeware that followed and which is included in this collection. Notably, a concrete house created in collaboration with local West London musician Maxi Millz can function as an incense holder and a key pot/jewellery holder.
Focusing on the community that surrounds the brand, Vented has worked with P-rallel Theory on producing a Hand Casted Concrete Sound System as well as creating a jewellery collaboration with Johnny Hoxton in the form of a 925 sterling silver pendant that depicts a skatepark, taking inspiration from the original hand-caste skatepark.
See the full collection below, which is available now at Selfridges with some of the designs being exclusive to the retailer.
