A contemporary interpretation of classic Asian vases with their bold visual impact, the Arya Vase, by Giulio Cappellini and Antonio Facco, is made of paste-coloured glass that has been mouth-blown into a mould.
Available in three sizes, the Arya vases also reflect their eastern influences in the palette selected for the project: super glossy white, air force blue and chocolate, colours which are evocative of the beautiful hues of antique porcelain and typical glassware from the Orient.
The Arta vase is an eloquently strong presence that, besides glorifying flowers and greenery, can also be used to give character to a space, on its own or in a set with vases of other dimensions.
The fruit of the ancient art of master glassmakers, Arya vases are one-of-a-kind. Any irregularities in the colour or thickness of the glass, or any tiny air bubbles, are due to the artisanal workmanship, and likewise should be considered a valuable addition.
Trained as an architect in Milan, Giulio Cappellini is an emblematic figure in the international design panorama.
Animated by an indomitable spirit and the curiosity of someone who wants to renew himself continuously, Cappellini dedicates himself to design by offering his personal revision of contemporary design, both for the brand that bears his name, and as art director for other important brands in the field.
Antonio Facco was born in Milan. His numerous collaborations with architects and designers, during his academic studies at the IED in Milan, led him to found Dedra, in 2011: a multi-disciplinary channel for design and visual arts that fosters the dialogue between young creatives with diverse skills and different geographic locations (Milan, Italy – Urbino, Italy – Brighton, UK).
