French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have created a range of wavy-edged ceramic vases that nestle together as a group .
The Bouroullec brothers created the Cloud vases to accompany signed copies of their guide Drawing, which features sketches of the duo’s patterns and is published by JRP Ringier.
“In the context of a limited edition to accompany our Drawing book, we made a decision to make an object to be in trying to keep with our drawings,” Ronan Bouroullec told Dezeen.
Thirty sets of four vessels – every single with a diverse height – were developed in black enamelled ceramic.
“We did some tests with diverse supplies and we located ceramic, with its imperfect and vibrant character, to be the appropriate solution,” explained the brothers.
Each of the vases has the very same prepare and attributes eight tubes for holding flower stems.
The wavy edges, which create the outline of a cartoon cloud when viewed from over, are shaped so the pieces sit neatly with each other as an ensemble.
The designers wanted to produce 3D objects that relevant immediately to their sketches, and settled on the cloud-shaped kinds as their preferred representation.
“It was challenging to associate a finished object with this profusion of drawings, but the principle of clouds – primarily based on the articulation of shapes and on the likelihood of composition via these type of organic black stains – turned out to be the ideal remedy,” stated Ronan Bouroullec.
Handmade in France, the vases will be presented throughout this year’s D’Days design festival in Paris, taking location from one to 7 June.
