V4 Vase Collection by Seung Yong Song
Updated: Jan 23, 2020
Recalling a wire frame dressmaker’s form, this vase by the young Korean designer is composed of a stainless steel cage over a concrete and walnut bottom.
The concept behind this collection was to create pieces that are full of contrasts and irony. It combines lightness and heaviness, lines and lumps, smoothness and roughness, coldness and warmth, all together using the simplicity and honestly of materials such as concrete and stainless steel. Materials and forms balance through the course of colliding and confronting within one volume. The wire frame cage seats on the concrete and walnut base and plays around with the idea of solid and void, open and enclosed and ultimately results in simple and minimal vases.
