Inspiration for the Cornelia
A part of the STATE x Japan Artisan Series, Cornelia explores deep layers of color, drawing inspiration from textures in nature – like eye catching Terrazzo and warm wood chips – its flattering shape the perfect vehicle to contrast earth tones against its titanium temples. As we delve into nature, a peaceful feeling comes over us, reminding us of the Zen Buddhist Temple on Cornelia Avenue. The structure itself has a layered history, first built as a Freemason temple. Today it is a breathing example cultures blending and evolving, what happens when East meets West.
