Design of the Week: Wave Vase “Touch”

By on July 15th, 2013 in Design


This week’s selection is the Wave Vase “Touch” by the Italian KIORO’design team. 
The “Touch” reinvents the common practice of placing dried tall vegetation in a vase with a new 3D printing approach. Colorful and obviously from non-organic sources, the design is so reminiscent of dried tallgrass. Except it’s red, yellow, pink and blue. And made of nylon plastic. 
KIORO’design is a two-person team of a former aerospace engineer and aerospace designer, Giovanna Varchetta and Ciro Esposito, now explore 3D models in a completely different manner. Their mantra: 
Imagination, free from constraints of matter, is ready to take shape! 
You can purchase a copy of this colorful work from their site at a cost of only €74.00 (USD$95).
