The Gradation and Cube Air Vases are impressively made out of paper. Like their predecessor, the Mold the Air Vase, these two new additions are malleable and versatile. Unlike the past design, they boast more intricate patterns for which they were named after.
Designed by Japanese studio Torafu Architects for Ligne Roset and Cinna, the Gradation and Cube Air Vases were presented during the Maison & Objet exhibition in Paris. The patterns of each vase were printed onto paper discs that were then laser cut in order for them to be expanded into bowls and vases. Although thin and lightweight enough for people to question their durability, the vases gain more tension and strength when pulled out. Vibrantly colorful, the Gradation and Cube Air Vases can be manipulated into unexpected directions.
