Colorful Extruded Aluminum Products

Jorge Penadés Develops a Multi-Colored Series of Vases

— April 11, 2019 — Eco
Extruded aluminum products definitely have sustainable implications. The latest venture in this category is by Madrid-based designer Jorge Penadés who uses parts from lamps and shelves to bring a vision of colorfully accented and geometrically heavy range of vases.

The silhouettes of the vessels boast exposed joints that definitely contribute to an industrial vibe, while the overall composition is "fluted." Jorge Penadés releases six distinct designs and the collection — which has bee playfully dubbed 'Pisces,' is made to be limited edition. The name of the capsule is tied to the inspiration behind the vases. The color palette draws directly from the aesthetic of "coral reef fish in the Mediterranean sea."

Jorge Penadés is able to infuse extruded aluminum products with some degree of design-forward sensibilities.
