The Interstice Vase.



Minimal . Lightweight . Beautiful.



The Interstice vase by Alessandro Isola Studio.

The two parts of Interstice are beautifully symbiotic, their curves pushing into each other and allowing them to come together as if two halves of a coffee bean.



A solid rear forms the spine of both vases, as the form moves around to the front it becomes increasing and regularly perforated. These perforations allow glimpses through the product, forming apertures through which its contents are displayed.

Move around Interstice, or bring the two halves together, and the overlapping nature of its curves create the illusion of these apertures opening and closing, causing the contents of the vase to appear to ripple and shimmer.

Stand interstice vertically and it is a beautiful vase, lay one of the pieces down and allow the gentle curves to form a bowl for trinkets, fruit or hors d’oeuvres . 



Following on from the Dunes Bowl, Interstice is part of a series of products experimenting with the forms and details allowed to the designer by 3D printing. The series takes simple everyday objects and reinterprets them in a more contemporary form by morphing them to create sculptural pieces. In order to minimize the use of material, the objects are then perforated so that they are solid only where necessary.
