From organic shapes to industrial metal objects and abstract ceramics, these vases are little showstoppers. They are perfect for all these little empty spots that you need to fill to bring a space to life.
Expressive and soft in their forms, the handmade Aura Vases by German brand Schneid emerge from a poetic reflection on the curves of the female figure. Thanks to the raw sensuous surface and the intense, varied colours, these pieces have a quiet, tense presence, elevated by the soft reflection of light. Simultaneously abstract and familiar, the stoneware creations blurs the line between everyday object and sculpture.
The shape of the Nuage Vases, designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra, made its first appearance in 2002. Reminiscent of a cloud, the motif was originally produced as a plastic shelf module. For the vase, the duo translated the theme into extruded aluminium piece with tubular cavities. Thanks to their precise outer contours, multiple vases can be fitted together to create larger 'cloud formations'. They are made of coloured, anodised aluminium or ceramic and come in several different sizes.
Designed by Matteo Zorzenoni, the Crystal Ball Vase is inspired by party bubbles flying through the air. Italian brand Cappellini produces the piece with a solid ash base, holding two coloured, mouth-blown borosilicate glass spheres.
The Gabo Vase is part of the Ukrainian label Noom's 'Suprematic' collection, which is inspired by the geometric works of the great Suprematist Kazimir Malevich. Suprematism was a modernist art movement in the early twentieth century, exploring basic geometric forms. The geometric structure of the steel vases is not only decorative, but also functions as divider of flower bouquets.
The Reinach Vase was designed in 2002 by Linde Burkhardt for the Italian brand Driade. With its intense black and white contrast, the accordion-like middle section and the tapered opening, the 24 centimetre tall ceramic will set a strong accent in any room.
