Sasha Sykes' striking cocktail bookends – exclusive to The Garnered – are inspired by the 1980s-styled bar at her Dublin studio. The Cosmopolitan – synonymous with NY style – is deconstructed, its elements suspended in stylized form in a book-shaped resin case. A bold design object in its own right – buy as a set or in singles to mix and match.
The new work has been inspired by Sasha’s recent move to the city, relocating from a farm in rural Ireland to Dublin. “I wanted to celebrate the sociability and connectivity of being in the city, so I created a speakeasy as part of my new studio,” says Sasha. “It started off as a bit of craic, to have this little space that fits around 6-8 people, where people could come and have a drink and chat. We know each other in the design community, but you don’t often get to just come together and talk.”Visit Designer Page
