It would be easy to mistake the vases in the collection Narciso by Giorgia Zanellato for abstract art pieces. When not in use, their unique silhouettes and reflective surfaces speak of any other purpose than holding flowers. Once in use, however, it becomes quickly apparent why Italian designer named his recent collection after Narcissus.

The strategic use of mirrors throughout the collection Narciso by Giorgia Zanellato beautifully magnifies the vibrant qualities of the flowers themselves. Just like the Greek myth, these six vases were inspired by Narcissus’ punishment, which left him vulnerable to his vanity.

The vases in the collection Narciso by Giorgia Zanellato are made out of borosilicate glass, powder-coated aluminum and mirrored stainless steal. Stats for Vain Reflective Vases Trending: Older & Chilly
