‘OP-vase’ is a series of vessels conceived by turkish designer bilge nur saltik, presented at ventura lambrate during milan design week 2015. the capsules seek to create the impression of a bouquet with only a single flower through visual distortions, multiplying colorful petals throughout the spherical space. the glass shield’s kaleidoscopic properties have a magnifying effect, creating the impression of numerous abstracted botanicals.

the collection is composed of three vases in different sizes, each with their own unique pattern of cuts made from thick, hand blown glass, and formed with exacting precision to create the desired optics. tinted in blue and green, the shields not only augment the image of the flower, but add a subtle colored hue in addition to their own. as the viewer changes their orientation relative to the vase, the single flower’s form dissolves into a bouquet while maintaining a single, congruous form.

UPDATE: the ‘OP’ vase is on show during paris design week, in partnership with maison & objet, at MODA, as part of the 10/10 exhibition. curated by françois bernard, 10/10 displays ten key contemporary design projects that attract curiosity, and understand our era, while celebrating 10 years of MODA.
