Milan 2012 Preview: Block Vases by Nendo


Bringing one’s thoughts back to the joy of LEGO blocks, much-acclaimed practice Nendo by Oki Sato has recently unveiled their latest series of products which are to be launched as part of the 1% Collection during the upcoming edition of Milan Furniture Fair 2012. Among them, this series of minimalist, stackable vases called Block.

Available in four different sizes, the subdued, understated vases will be produced in a limited edition of 100 pieces as “to give owners the chance to experience the joy of owning 1%.”

“100 is the perfect amount: they’re neither one-off “works of art” nor mass-produced products made in the millions. Whether its the skill of the artisans or new technologies, we want to make things that are only possible because there are 100 of them. Not more, not less. To give owners the chance to experience the joy of owning 1%.”
