Flowers in the Sand by Yukihiro Kaneuchi

Bou-Taoshi is a Japanese game that is used as the basis of the design of the series of vases “Sand”. Yukihiro Kaneuchi has designed these vases as a reflection of this game. The rules of the game are simple. The first player makes a heap of sand and places a branch of flower on the top. Then the players by turn begin to remove sand; the one who causes the flower to fall is a loser. Not only children who are interested in the sandy entertainment, but also adults. In several Japanese temples the conic shape represents where God first came in the mythological age.

‘Fabbrica del vapore’ Vases in Mouth Blown Glass Created by Ionna Vautrin and Guillaume Delvign

Cooperation of artists and designers always gives excellent results. This is about a series of vases ‘Fabbrica del vapore’ created by French designers Ionna Vautrin and Guillaume Delvigne in 2008. The vase consists of two parts – of the vase itself in mouth blown glass and of ceramic base. There is a choice of different unusual asymmetrical shapes, sizes and colors. In our opinion, a better result can be achieved by using a combination of several vases, located in the same room. The series was presented during the Milan Furniture Fair 2008 inside the exhibition “Industreal Overture”; the Wallpaper Award 2009 of the best vase was received for this work.
