Jakub Berdych of Qubus Design Studio has created a new collection called Objects which mix standardized items with handcrafted elements to create objects with new meanings.

Berdych added and element of contradiction and beauty with hand-blown glass pieces which form the top of the vase. What is particularly nice about this project is the approach used to elevating a common disposable item. Another interesting way in which to consider sustainability in product design.
