Czech designer Martin Jakobsen’s ‘Malva’ vase holds its flowers all the way inside its glass enclosure and, as the designer says, “for that reason there is no untidiness”.

“Its geometric shape was inspired by Czech Cubism.” says Jakobsen. “Members of this movement realised the epochal significance of the Cubism of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque and attempted to extract its components for their own work in all branches of artistic creativity. Czech Cubists distinguish their work through the construction of sharp points, slicing planes, and crystalline shapes in their art works. These angles allowed the Czech Cubists to incorporate their own trademark in the avant-garde art group of Modernism.”

“The design is based on the contrast between the combination of organic and inorganic material. Malva is an innovative product which becomes a solitaire piece of splendour.” Malva will be officially presented to the public by Italian company Semiramis this autumn.
