There is something so satisfying about life’s simple pleasures. For Orli, one of those is drinking cold lemonade on a hot summer day. The Lemonade incorporates the bright yellow of fresh lemons as well as splashes of orange and white, colors reminiscent of vintage glass lemonade pitchers, in an Art Deco-inspired design. Orli says, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. It’s probably one of the more delicious and refreshing clichés out there.”
Orli likes beautiful things, and in this, she suspects that she is not alone. In fact, she suspects that you may agree. After all, form often follows function, but within form, there are multitudinous opportunities to amplify aesthetic appeal. Enter the movements of applied art, an all-encompassing approach to art and creativity that reaches far beyond the fine arts to touch industrial design and everyday objects with aesthetic design. Using fluid draping, clear and strong colors both bright and soft, and Orli’s characteristically deft blending of vintage and modern styling, Aesthete pieces are inspired by four such movements: Bauhaus, Art Neouveau, Art Deco, and Arts and Crafts.
