Prolific Italian architect and designer Joe Colombo created a wide array of appealing glass objects in his time. He worked with shapes, light, and silhouettes, and had an impressive way of creating small sculptures out of even the most functional homeware pieces.
Clessidra vase is a timeless and beautifully scaled glass object, where the container of the vase is raised gracefully from the light base to lift the flowers up in the air.
Colombo’s original drawings from 1969 shows a unique idea for a range of multiuse glass objects based on geometrical figures. One of these being the tall, slender Clessidra vase.
