Italian design gallery SecondHome on the exhibition SaloneSatellite 2011, which took place this summer in Milan, introduced the world to an unusual series of glass objects, which might as well be decorative as functional. Thus, a design studio Fabrica, uniting under the wing of several young designers who produced eight species that are some kind of vases, but the same time some kind of sculptures, under the title Here & (T) here.
Some might compare the unusual glass design with the artistic legacy of the famous surrealist and postmodern, if it were not for the fact that no matter how many strange and incomprehensible these vases is, they can still be used for other purposes. For example, a flower, or as an important, but the decorative elements of interior, and even a carafe of beverage. If, of course, the device or that the vessel will allow it.
Made of glass and oak wood, these vases are called hybrid of contemporary art and functionality. Whatever it was, when suddenly the glass part of the Here & (T) here can not be applied in everyday life, you can always use some wood – in the form of a coffee table, decorative shelves, stands under a night light, clock, or a “normal” for a vase of flowers.
Collection Here & (T) here – an exclusive, because of unusual glass vases limited to 30 copies of each of eight objects that were presented.
