Flower vase recycled glass BY MIEKE CUPPEN M
Urban Nature Culture collaborates with the talented mind of Dutch designer Mieke Cuppen once again. Following our first partnership, on the beautiful Torii object, Mieke now makes her grand return with something completely different. A series of three vases, made of 100% recycled glass, with each vase offering a graphic silhouette, composed of geometric shapes. What started as research in combining different shapes and materials within a single silhouette, quickly turned into a challenging game of trying to find the best. The best shape, most outstanding proportions and, highly important, the harmony between them. From that, Mieke selected three different sizes – and a series was born. A true reflection of the design game Mieke played, all three find their origin in loose parts, cast in glass and joined forces to create a whole. Three objects which stand out on their own, but combined with flowers – you’ll find that each vase carries the flowers in its own way. And that is thing of beauty.
