DEMO · 2014
DOM is a small vase designed to
contain inside a feather, a cactus or whatever you decide. Inspired by a bird
cage, the only rule is that you can see but you can't touch.
DOM vase is a dialogue between technology and crafts, simplicity and complexity.
For the occasion of DEMO design
festival, we were commissioned to design an object; the main part of it must be
produced with a plastic 3d printer. We thought this was a good opportunity for
us to do a research about how we could dignify 3D printed plastic by mixing it
with other materials.
The laborious and imperfect plastic
dome, produced with a 3d printer, is combined with the strength and quality of
the marble, the wood and the glass. The entire piece is finished in one-colour,
creating an elegant balance between the textures of the materials.
It is produced in 4 colours, in a
limited edition of 49 pieces+ 1 prototype of each colour.
