'Narciso' vase series by Giorgia Zanellato

Just as in the Greek myth of Narcissus, this series of vases by the young Italian product designer and recent ECAL graduate Giorgia Zanellato reflects and emphasises the beauty of blooms and ‘draws attention to the role of the flower’ thanks to the striking, kaleidoscopic effects achieved through the use of cleverly-positioned mirrors. Suitably named ‘Narciso’, the collection encompasses six different vases made of borosilicate glass, powder-coated alluminium and mirrored stainless steal.

More about the series:

 

‘Narciso is a project which started with the intention of designing some vases, focusing on the functionality of the vase as an object. But what is the function of a vase? They are used to display flowers. Narciso is a collection of six different vases which use mirrors to draw attention to the role of the flowers. Mirrors are investigated in all their aspects, from the simplest reflection to the most complex one. In this way each vase shows flowers from a different point of view.’
