Copper And Glass Vases

Giorgio-Bonaguro-Tapio-Vases-1

Once the domain of beakers and test tubes, borosilicate breaks out of the science lab in this series of vases by Milanese industrial and interior designer Giorgio Bonaguro. Called the Tapio, these glass-blown vessels pay homage to the work of Finnish sculptor Tapio Wirkkala in the sixties and seventies.

“I tried to do a collection of vases with simple, archetypal shapes, but giving a modern taste, exaggerating the heads and emphasizing with colors like metals.” The copper necks, in this case, are the result of pigments.
