DESIGN X SABER Short Documentary from Y Studios on Vimeo.

For the saber inspired by starchitect Zaha Hadid, Y Studios turned to Hadid’s signature sinewy webs that encase transparent bulbous forms, which takes a number from the architect’s Abu Dhabi Performing Arts Center. The classic Eames Saber feels appropriately Mid Century modern, with molded plywood and leather in a classic-feeling design.

Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake is known for his use of pleats, creases and folds. The Miyake Saber is inspired by his Bao Bao collection, with a myriad of shapes making up the saber handle, also causing a fabulously glittering effect. The historic ceramic styles of the late Edith Heath are rendered in a smooth and subtle saber that borrows from her famous Studio Cup, complete with thumb hole.

German industrial designer Dieter Rams’ “Ten Principles for Good Design” are shown in a utilitarian design that features his use of new materials, and pays homage to his forty years designing at Braun. The Y Saber pulls together Y Studio’s philosophies: simplicity, purpose and beauty, in a sleek bronze and black metallic handle.

The Designer Sabers are for the distinguished Star Wars fan — fusing the love of good design with the epicness of The Force!
