'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.’

'Puzzle' small by Formfjord

The Berlin based designers of Formfjord recently completed this series of glass vases for the German manufacturer Leonardo. All pieces are based on one well-thought-out geometrical detail: Due to their characteristic silhouette – the curved passage between their square foot and the rectangular opening – all pieces fit perfectly together and complement one another. The vases are available in three sizes in white, transparent and silver.

Collection of aluminium vessels and lampshades by Jahara Studio

During this year’s Valencia Disseny Week the Bazilian designer Brunno Jahara presented his beautiful collection of colourful anodised alumnium vessels and lampshades within the ‘Uniedo Puntos’ exhibition. In the impressing old building of Valencia University the exhibition showcased the most recent works of Latin-American and Spanish designers with a clear focus on sustainable materials and processing. Brunno Jahara’s collection was inspired by a percussion beat used in carnival parties – ‘Batucada’.


“In Brazil, people play instruments made of tins, aluminum pots, and other alternative materials”, the designer explains.

'Meshlamp' by Werner Aisslinger

'Meshlamp', 2009, Edition of 10 + 1, by Werner Aisslinger

The HELMRINDERKNECHT contemporary design gallery in Berlin recently opened their new exhibition VASE vs. VASES. 15 international designers and artists, among them Alfredo Häberli, Oskar Diaz, Werner Aisslinger and Martí Guixé, have been invited to show their contemporary interpretations of this commodity item. The exhibition is open until 09 January 2010.

One of my favourite pieces is the work by Werner Aisslinger. To produce the vase, a specially crafted mould in the form of a bag and made out of fibre glass is filled with liquid glass and blown into a cylindrical wooden form. The mesh leaves its print in an uncontrollable process of dilation in the glass and makes each of the mesh lamp stands unique in its form and structure of surface. Each object is a unique piece. The techniques were developed in cooperation with the Centre for Glass CIAV Centre International D’Art Verrier, Meisenthal (France).

'Lineas' by Alfredo Häberli

'Lineas' 2007, Edition 5 of each, by Alfredo Häberli

Alfredo Häberli designed a series or family of three vases made of pure glass, each individually banded with colored rubber bands which seem to hold the glass together, but are simply an instrument to divide the vase aperture in order to present single flowers or bouquets in the very same vase.

Objet mélancolique No 1 (vase), 2009, Edition of 6+1 by Frédéric Dedelley

Objet mélancolique No 1, 2009, Edition of 6+1 by Frédéric Dedelley

In Dedelley´s vase the production process and the material are part of the design. The imperfection of an archaic production process (sand casting) and a good portion of fortuitousness due to his choice of material (Tombac, light alloy brass / a mixture of bronze and brass) determine the final shape of the vase. Small imperfections in shape, a vivid and accidental color and the rare quality of the surface provide the unique and outstanding beauty and distinctive character of this vase.
