Sometimes, we get so excited about a fun project that we don't really stop to think about it very much. That's usually the case with most of our design work, where we mostly play around with shapes and forms until we find something that we like!
That's great for coming up with ideas! Not so great for coming up with names and "design-narratives" (or whatever).
So, these vases don't have a name yet. And we don't know if we'll be pursuing a full release (We're only releasing 10 of each for now). But we like to try things here, and so let's just give it a shot! These were the winners of our voting round (so presumably they were your favorites).
Unlike our Duna Vases, these vases are completely watertight without needing a glass insert. That means that the entire volume can be filled with water (good news for people who don't like to refill their vases constantly).
These (unnamed) vases are 3D printed out of recycled polyethelene plastic in our Brooklyn studio.

Built Layer By Layer
Instead of using traditional manufacturing methods where material is subtracted in order to create an object, we make use of 3d printing using biologically derived materials to make our lamps. 3d printing is additive — that means material is added layer by layer to build the final object. No additional material is wasted in the process. It’s only a small step in trying to make our work as sustainable as possible
Made From Corn
We are proud to be making use of PLA, a corn based bio-plastic in our lamps. PLA constitutes the entirety of the lamp shade and the bulk of the base, and eventually can be composted.
