ceMMent Design is a design studio in the Old City of Jaffa Israel featuring contemporary household objects, home decor and Modern Judaica. Designed by Marit Meisler the objects are hand made from concrete, bringing an architectural quality to household objects. Normally perceived as mundane, this ancient material is used to create everyday objects as well as holy artifacts. Used primarily in architecture on a large scale, concrete is introduced into the home as a small, intimate object. Although concrete is often thought of as a cold and industrial material, the ceMMent designs are warm and tactile.
About the product
The Mezuzah is made out of two pieces. The durable concrete cast slides over the metal scroll holder which is mounted onto the door frame. The ש (Shin) letter is recessed from the surface of the concrete. The mirror finish of the nickel plated pewter stands as contrast to the warm textural quality of the concrete. This modern design places a concrete object back into its original architectural context. The clean minimalist design make a Judaica / home decor item that combines between religious artifacts and contemporary design.
