Bucket Vase: Utilitarian Objects Mixed With Contradiction
Do everyday products need an injection of handcraft to be more sustainable? One designer might have the answer.
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. The Bucket Vase was inspired by the way flower shops often display their merchandise in common buckets. 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.
