benjamin graindorge: bloomingbless vase for cinna

‘bloomingbless vase’ by benjamin graindorge

‘bloomngbless vase’ is the result of a collaboration between french designer benjamin graindorge and french furniture and design company cinna.

‘bloomingbless vase’ is comprised of three pieces: two hand blown blue vases (1 vase H23 Ø 13 and 1 oval vase H18 W16 L13) and a bottomless ring surrounding the two vases (H21.5 W31.5 L15.5), each of which are transparent. the vessels are meant to be composed like a bouquet within one another in a way that makes it uncertain as to whether the vase is actually made from 1, 2 or 3 objects. the vase can hold small to large bouquets, where space and load can alternate.

  • very nice colour, could imagine different colours though.
    it would be less minimalistic but more playful.
