bouroullec brothers and VITRA present the nuage cloud vase at maison et objet

 

maison et objet fall 2016: french designer-duo ronan and erwan bouroullec will be presenting their collection of ‘nuage vases’ as part of VITRA‘s accessories collection at this year’s interior design fair taking place in paris. the tubular form of the ‘nuage vessels’, hence the name, is reminiscent of their stylized drawing of a cloud and first appeared in their work for back in 2002.

the vases recently appeared in a temporary installation in which the bouroullecs dedicated 120 vessels filled with thin stems of flora to zaha hadid, which was poetically set within the fire station on the VITRA campus in weil am rhein, germany. the initial design derived from the tubes being overturned on one side to create large partition elements in plastic stackables. by experimenting with this functional shape in their graphic works, the nuage vase was created and can is recognized by their extruded aluminum profiles which is available in different heights and metallic shades.

the cavities of the base form have been positioned at the top, dividing the vase into eight individual tubes that allow the user to create artistic floral compositions. the simple yet sculptural character of the vases highlight the delicate stems of flowers and leaves on display.
