Vitra Nuage Vase
Good day lovely humans. Sorry I'm a day late with posting this week. I usually try to post on Wednesdays and Saturdays but Wednesday stuck up on me this week. But you're about to see that it was all worth the wait. Each month I share a design object that I'm currently obsessing over. Last month it was ceramic vase shaped like a paper bag. And the month before that I was all over Scandinavian salt and pepper grinders. Well this month it's another vase, which is no surprise because I have a real vase problem. Meet the Vitra Nuage vase. Drink it in. Isn't it fabulous?! Nuage means cloud in French. It's produced by design house royalty Vitra and was designed by French brothers Erwan and Ronan Bouroullec.
It's a series of 8 tubes all leading to a communal base. They're made in ceramic and aluminum. It's meant to have an organic shape and resemble a cloud. The shape is so dreamy. When grouped together, the vases resemble a fluffy mountain range. The 8 tubes mean you can create really interesting arrangements. You can place one flower per tube, making each flower stand out and appear more punctuated. It makes for a unique arrangement, different from the typical vase of flowers you see.
They recently produced the aluminium version in a new colour: burnt orange. It was all over Vitra's Instagram. Burnt orange usually reminds me of Halloween but this one has a metallic quality to it because of the aluminium. So I kinda like it. But of course the white ceramic original is the one I truly covet. I'm such a simpleton. Now if only I had $150 laying around to purchase one!
