What is a vase? How does it work?

Those were simple questions I asked myself for this historical object which was
created since Neolithic period.

I found that, all the vases in the world have a same basic principle to hold flowers.
There are 2 important parts which function differently.

Top part (vase-mount), has a duty to hold flower stem and base part, to hold
water and also offer a stability to the vase.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Weight” brings a new perspective on a vase design by the separation of 2
different parts which support each other.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Water container made of concrete pile-up on a steel piece to give a stability
for holding flowers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the collection, there are 4 vases for different flower setting from single flower
to flowers panel.

Christofle, the luxury French silver company was founding in mid-19th century.
Ecal students were asked to design a birth gift which can be transfered from
generation to generation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Slide” is a money box (piggy bank) which particularly designed to encourage
children to save money by using coin slide down to the box. The more children

For this workhop, I got a chance to reinterpret the brand’s icon, the famous
Harcourt glassware, which was 170 years old in 2011. The design of this glass
has not changed since it was created, and it has become a classic of the
diplomatic world, used on the table of Napoleon III to that John-Paul II.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Play” is a collection of classic games such as cup & ball games (Bilboquet)

and rings toss made of the Harcout glasses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This project was exhibited in Mauro Brucoli Antiquario, Via Spiga 17 during
Milan Internation Furniture Fair 2011.
