Design by Jaime Hayon, 2008.
Handmade in metal, Jaime Hayon's Grid Vases provide a cool contrast of shape and material to the flowers and plants that occupy them. Flora can stand above the top of the vase as with traditional arrangements, but also can be placed behind or within the top cage of the piece to dramatic effect. The Round is ideal for potted plants and broader arrangements or groupings. Offered in two finishes.
"The Grid Vase, was inspired by a combination of city influences. Since moving to London I have been fascinated by British history and the strong medieval atmosphere when I walk through the streets. I became fascinated by tales of the knights templar and the Tudors and the endlessly rich history surrounding me. I came up with vases, inspired by suits of armor, helmets and fencing masks. My trip to Turkey was also relevant. I had visited the city and the beauty I had seen in Islamic arts and crafts was very inspirational. Strong yet fancy armor and the essence of these two cities are very much behind this set of vases." — Jaime Hayon
