With its vertical lines and unique shape, the idea for the Ridge Vase was sparked by a doorway in Paris that Studio Kaksikko discovered while traveling through different cities with a vase in mind, searching for details that had an architectural feel.
Handmade in terracotta, the vase presents a new way to hold flowers through its sculptural expression along with an artful character when not in use. With references to its name, Ridge Vase applies an added functionality through its refined dent, allowing for flowers to stand upright while also working as a subtle handle when moving the vase from one room to another. The vase comes in two sizes, bringing a distinct touch to any room. Place the Ridge Vase in a windowsill, on the floor or side table for a characterful design object that is unique in both its function and expression.
“The idea for the Ridge Vase came while traveling through different cities with a vase in mind, searching for details that had an architectural feel. Upon returning to our studio in Finland, we began sketching by hand and making mock-ups in paper and ceramics. The Ridge Vase manipulates the oval form through its refined dent while adding the function of a small handle to use when moving the vase from one room to another.”, explained Studio Kaksikko about the design.
