gust of wind swirls upwards with great momentum. Horizontal twists, curves and distortions create an irregular body on a square pedestal. Vertical waves drift gently upwards, emerging seemingly unnoticed and yet lavishly from a geometric base. Smooth surfaces with a subtle shine want to be touched. With his Squall and Blown vase collections, Cédric Ragot has achieved the seemingly impossible: capturing the momentum of movement and reproducing this in porcelain. He has created exciting yet functional sculptures that are accentuated by the pristine white of the precious material.
A giant droplet made of glass. Round and well-formed. Transparent or opaque. Silke Decker has designed a vase that is simple and yet quite unusual, namely because it moves back and forth like a swing. The highly playful object with a rounded base is a real eye-catcher, especially when combined with different coloured items. Swinging Vases is available in three sizes, in transparent or opaque glass. In Transparent, Rosé, Blue, Amber and Grey. In Petrol, Red, Silver and Gold. Swinging Vases is one of those designs that fits in anywhere, both as an eye-catcher and as a vase for single blossoms.
Cool, wet, morning dew. Running barefoot through a green meadow, the blades of grass bending as you move. The sun‘s rays break through the blanket of clouds. And hit water droplets that sparkle like diamonds. Charlotte von der Lancken had an idyllic scene like this in mind when she designed the Dagg vase series. Large droplets made of transparent glass have been scattered seemingly casually across the white porcelain surface. Like huge water droplets, they appear to stream down the conical vase body, as they reflect the outside world. The Swedish designer tells stories and stirs up memories with her decorative object. Yet she always keeps form and function in mind.
So everything is made out of cardboard? Certainly not. What on first glance looks like artistically folded paper is in fact porcelain. The Taiwanese designer Ming-Ju Hsieh has created mugs, plates, bowls – five pieces in total and every one of them entirely in white. His idea: multifunctional practical items for everyday use. Be it at home on a beautifully laid table, a quick yet stylish snack at work, or a relaxed picnic in the park. The minimalist Daily Life collection has a rather unpretentious feel. Folds are created in fragile porcelain so it looks strikingly like simple fast food packaging and copy paper, yet is in fact sustainable. The combination of its ephemeral appearance and the sustainable porcelain material creates a subtle tension.
Hanna Krüger loves experimenting. When she discovered Josef Hoffmann‘s subtle double-bowl design in Vienna, she began experimenting with this straight away. She stacked bowls and mugs on top of each other in all possible sizes, shapes, materials, decorations. The result of this creative process: the artistic Jos glass collection. The design focuses on the multifunctionality of objects. They are designed in such a way that they work from two sides. As a shallow bowl and a tall vase, for example. The combination of clear, satin-finished glass with cut elements is strikingly beautiful. Honeycombs, crosses and lines produced by hand float delicately over the transparent glass surface and are combined with a luxurious gold finish.
