Curious Vase

“Curious Vase” is a series of vases designed by Mianne de Vries. Each vase has up to 3 more vases hidden inside. So you have to break the outer ones to see how the other ones look like.

Air Vases

January 24th, 2012

The Japanese studio Torafu Architects designed 2 new versions of their air vases: Gradation and Cube. Those 2 patterns are printed on both sides of paper disks, which are cut so the user can simply pull them into the desired shape. They don’t much function but they look nice.

Daniel Michel searched for 8 different vases on Google Images. The rotation outlines of the 8 vases were arranged around a center and connected by minimal surfaces in a 3D construction software. Afterwards the textures were set on the surfaces and the vase was printed by a 3D-Printer in plaster.

BLUR Collection by Big-Game

May 12th, 2009

The “BLUR Collection” by Big-Game is one of the better design projects I’ve seen lately. The vases are so high that the flowers disappear almost completely into them, only their colored shadow appear through the frosted glass. The tables and mirrors are silkscreened with a gradient. Your reflection disappears towards to bottom of the mirror. The tables look like they are up in the clouds. Nice work!

Blow Away vase by Front

April 22nd, 2009

The girls of Front digitised a Royal Delft vase and added some parameters to the material in the 3D software. It was then exposed to a simulated gust of wind. This is really a typical Front project.
The Blow Away vase is available from Moooi.
