Nuage Vases by Studio Bouroullec for Vitra
Updated: Jan 22, 2020
In the context of a limited edition to accompany Drawing book, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec decided to make an object to be in keeping with their drawings. They did some tests with different materials and found ceramic, with its imperfect and vibrant character, to be the right answer; its alterity belongs also to drawings nature. It was difficult to associate a finished object to this profusion of drawings and the principle of Clouds, based on the articulation of shapes and on the possibility of composition thought these kind of organic black stains, turn out to be the best solution, the Cloud Vases.
This year, at the Maison et Objet fall 2016, they are re introducing 'Nuage Vases' as a reminiscent of their Cloud Vases which first appeared in 2002. A temporary installation named 'for Zaha' is comprised of 120 vases filled with thin stems of flora and poetically staged within the fire station on the Vitra campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany. The vessels are available in different heights and various metallic colors.
