Magpie Collection is a collaboration between HEKA and Lucy Norman of Studio Makecreate. The series of luxury glass bottles and containers for storing beauty products predicted the ‘refill revolution’; a time where the beauty industry and its consumers start to move towards a circular system of consumption.
In homage to magpies and their collections of shiny treasure—used to attract mates—Magpie Collection is designed to be filled and shown-off on a bathroom shelf, mantlepiece or dressing table.
Gold-mirrored designs on the glass surfaces reflect the light on one side, and cast shadows on the other, creating mesmerising overlapping patterns. The viscosity, colour and texture of different liquids, lotions and powders change the way light refracts and reflects adding a playful element to the collection.
Magpie Collection is completed with an elegant set of gold-plated, handheld tools including a spoon, sieve, funnel and bottle brush for using to fill and clean bottles and jars.
Magpie Collection is a collaboration that continues exploring the theme of beauty and self-sufficiency within projects by HEKA and Lucy’s experiments with pattern and light. Resulting in a series of products that fuse aesthetics and playfulness with functionality and sustainability.
