Design label UNICORN BERLIN offers these gorgeous limited edition pieces of vintage vases reworked as side tables. After working for many exclusive furniture brands, Andreas Berlin started to create is own collection. Named ‘Small Tables’, his first series of amazing table pieces made from vintage vases.
The idea was to make viewers understand a vase not as a product, but as a segment of a sculpture. For the first batch of Small Tables, he needed more than 800 vintage vases, to find the perfect combination (diameter and design) to build the columns, all found in flea markets and antique shops in and around Berlin. Andreas and it’s team had to experiment, to find a perfect construction between elasticity and stability. It was a challenge because each ceramic vase is different to another and they are all inexact in its geometry. See also his awesome ‘Small Shelve’ series
