Defensive Arm Brace 2011-2012
DEFENSIVE ARM BRACE has been inspired by animal defence mechanisms - reptilian scales, hedgehog spines and an armadillo's armoured body. The white porcelain tiles are elegant and quietly beautiful, but with provocation the heckles become raised and the arm brace is transformed into something more threatening, sending a strong visual warning to beware.
