andrea branzi vases

i am still trying to figure out how these supercool ceramic vases from the portali collection by italian designer andrea branzi work. at first i thought they were glass and clay, but upon further inspection it is clear that the pieces are simple square white frames. you can also sort of see in the picture of the double decker one that there’s a hole cut out on the top edges, so that the stems that are placed inside the vase remain in their original places.

i love sculptural, functional pieces like these. they make a statement regardless of whether or not the vase is filled.

see the entire portali and superego collection and purchase (they ship worldwide!) at design design.
