‘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.
