Defined by a unique combination of geometric elements that create a contrasting yet poetic presence, the vase pays homage to the several thousand-year-old ceramic handcraft tradition. Expertly crafted from clay, a slender, colourful rod towers above the cylindrical base, brought together through an abstract slab of grey, forming a fragile yet harmonious balance. The Vitra Decoupage Vase - Barre is a striking piece that can add a flourish of colour and bold contemporary design to your home; whether used as a standalone ornament or purposeful vase. Part of the Vitra Decoupage collection.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the Breton-born brothers, are the stars of European design and the most promising industrial designers to have emerged from France since Philippe Starck in the 1980s.
A combination of romanticism and functionality runs throughout both brothers’ work. Like all truly talented designers, the Bouroullecs have defined a distinctive visual style, which Jasper Morrison (one of the designers they most admire) described as “thoughtful and disciplined, with a real spirit and poetry”.
