The vessels were inspired by a stacking children’s toy brought in by one of the studio’s designers. “The noise of the wood connecting, the feeling of quality in the materials and the stacking nature really appealed to us all,” explained the Vitamin Team.
Traditional materials and techniques can be seen in the decanter style base made from cut glass and the various rings of turned wood in walnut, maple and oak.
Other rings have been made using contemporary processes such as rapid prototyping, seen in the black diamond-patterned piece, and CNC cutting, seen in the burgundy plastic piece. The other materials used include gold, silver, polished steel, ceramic and granite.Designer: Vitamin Project name: Element Vessels Year: 2012
