A study on porcelain, the vase collection of Rimma Tchilingarian, a design studio based in Berlin, Germany, plays with the medium in a very minimalistic manner. The designers and artists of Rimma Tchilingarian adhere to the same shape and form throughout the series while introducing textures and colors to set them each apart. Somehow these elements work together to create something that is at once bold and subtle.

In particular, Rimma Tchilingarian aims to bring China porcelain back into the modern market. As written on its website, "To re­vise this out-dat­ed per­cep­tion and to em­pha­size that por­ce­lain is a raw ma­te­ri­al which can be expe­ri­enced and in­ter­pre­ted in dif­fer­ent ways over and over again was the greater in­ten­tion of this stu­dio project." Rimma Tchilingarian has succeeded with flying colors in this regard.
