What the Heck is a SHIBUYA Vase?




With Christophe Pillet's Shibuya vases, Kartell conducts an experiment unique in the world: making plastic precious like glass, rich and full-bodied, as if it were blown glass from Murano. Shibuya vases have a pierced lid that can transform them into table accessories and not just decorative objects. Beyond their multi-functional aspect, the unique aspect of this project is the fact that the vases have two colored bands with no interruption in the material's surface, guaranteeing perfect water tightness. Color is the key player in this project: its intensity and depth, combined with the full-bodied plastic, makes this object especially precious. The Shibuya Vase is available from Stardust Modern Design.
