Glass Vases “Pino-Pino” by Maija Puoskari and Tuukka Tujula

Maija Puoskari together with Tuukka Tujula has designed a glass vase/container named Pino-Pino. “When receiving flowers one often has just the wrong vase. The glass vase Pi-no Pi-no offers a solution to this problem with its modifiability. The height and colour of this practical and beautiful vase can be adjusted through its stackable glass rings, so that one vase can work in different situations. When not in use for flowers, the vase can be turned into a container due to its wooden lid.”

Innesti by Alexandra Denton and Sofia Lazzeri

Alexandra Denton and Sofia Lazzeri have designed Innesti, a decorative item that will be exhibited during the upcoming Stockholm Design Week. “A fruitful combination between glass and textile. Innesti is the italian word for grafting, a botanic technique used to join tissue from one plant with another, with the purpose of creating new varieties. Alexandra Denton and Sofia Lazzeri in their collaborative project, developed unique pieces that are mixtures of two very different materials: glass and textile. The outcomes combine contrasting properties: the hardness, fragility and coldness of glass, with the softness, coziness and warmness of textile. In order to explore how humans understand, perceive and interpret matter, the designers have chosen to work with shapes and techniques that enhance the sensorial features of the materials. The alchemical artifacts came to life by exploring and merging together processes coming from an ancient era: glass blowing, weaving and dyeing. The project aims to enhance the voices of the materials and stimulate an aesthetic experience that celebrates contrasts, knowledge and tradition.”

Creative “Bloom My Body” Vase

Here is another example of creative vases similar to WIG Vase that we’ve shown you some time ago. Created by Niels van Eijk and Miriam van der Lubbe the person-shaped vases “Bloom My Buddy” allow to create endless number of original creations with flowers, leaves and stems! Originally commissioned by the Flower Council of Holland, the larger design has been downsized for a home version. The smaller one measures 45 cm, is made of rotation molded polyethylene and has 98 holes. The larger version measures 120 cm, is made of hand laminated polyester and has 298 holes. Take a look!
