Inca Vase Collection by Ali Bakova
A magical glass vase in smoked grey, its angles are Escher-like in their seeming illogicality. The vase appears to be triangular and circular at the same time, and the way the glass twists around itself creates a fascinating illusion. The edges are soft and slightly elliptic making the vase beautiful to touch.
About the designer Ali Bakova
Ali Bakova lives in Istanbul, where his studio is in the large industrial complex of Maslak. It’s an unusual area, where the creative industries and car repair shops happily co-exist. In 2015, Ali Bakova co-curated an exhibition there – Atolye Maslak Maker Culture – in which small-scale production of art-craft pieces was carried out on-site with 3D printers. He is also a leading light of design education in Istanbul. Ali Bakova can be playful – creating a cat from Iznik tiles, or a wooden chair inspired by the Galata Bridge. For Nude, however, he is interested in creating pure design for functional use.
