Lampion Vase by Laura Strasser
‘Lampion’ is manufactured in Jingdezhen. The particular relief technique, that decorates the upper part of the lampshade, produces a stunning visual effect that only becomes visible when the lamp is switched on. The result is possible thanks to waver-thin, bright white porcelain of which the lamp duo is made.

'Happy Pills' vases by Fabio Novembre for Venini
Italian designer Fabio Novembre imbued his latest collection of vases with happiness by attributing each of the five brightly-coloured pieces to a different chemical compound. Developed in collaboration with Murano glass specialists Venini, the ‘Happy Pills’ vases have been produced using the centuries-old Incalmo hand-blowing technique, originally invented more than 500 years ago by dexterous Venetian glassblowers who developed it to create objects consisting of two or more distinct parts in different colours.

Vase & Leuchte lamp by Miriam Aust for Dua
Although a lamp consisting of a lightbulb submerged in water might sound like a highly-hazardous concept to say the least, the young German designer Miriam Aust has found her solution to this seemingly-impossible idea which resulted in creation of this striking series of lights-cum-vases. Called just that, the award-winning ‘Vase & Leuchte’ consists of three, differently-sized clear glass lamps composed from an archetypal pendant lampshade surrounded by a cylinder, which can be filled with water and decorated with water plants or cut flowers.

'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…)

'Kerameikos' vessels by Siba Sahabi
Young Amsterdam-based designer Siba Sahabi has created a collection of handcrafted vases which reference the ‘aesthetic that was originally established by ancient Greek ceramicists.’ Named after the potters’ quarter in Athens, ‘Kerameikos’ is made entirely out of paper and ‘the series conforms to the present day value placed on antique Greek ceramics where the artistic skills and characteristics determine the price of the object rather than the material.’
