The Heirloom

The Heirloom helps people to form an emotional connection with objects handed down through the generations of their family, encouraging them to consider the life of their possessions beyond their own. The inherited object is enshrined in a glass jar -the owner can record memories of the object before passing it on to their chosen recipient. The lifetime of the object is therefore captured, transforming it from a miscellaneous item to a meaningful artefact and reminder of family passed.

Designer: Nikki Ferguson (United Kingdom)
Manufacturer: Nikki Ferguson (United Kingdom)
Inspired By: Analogue Radios, Family Stories, Emotional connections to objects
Material: Walnut, Glass, Paper, Aluminium
