Design by Constantin Boym, 2007/2010.
Composed of a series of crystal sticks, Constantin Boym's Skyscraper Vases are towering and slim. Their vertical lines in luminous crystal play the cool counterpart to flower arrangments, single stems and branches. (Shown at left with the Small Metropolitan Vase.)
"As a former architect, I have been long interested in architectonic expression for tabletop objects. Skyscraper vase is a seemingly random assortment of miniature crystal towers. It appears almost immaterial in its multifaceted transparency. The vase assumes a different meaning when an organic form of a flower or branch is introduced inside. The composition is based on contrast between the linear and the organic, between transparency and materiality, between artificial and natural."
Skyscraper Vases feature 9 crystal sticks in each vase, all glued by hand. Select from three sizes in Clear or Blue crystal.
Material(s): Hand polished optical crystal
