MULTI glass vases
1st prize in International Glass Design Award 2018 by Glasmanufaktur Harzkristall and Gerhard Bürger Foundation
Formex Nova Nordic Design Award 2020 Nomination
Design Jukka Jokinen & Heikki Konu
Multi glass vase collection is an internationally acclaimed and award-winning product series. The collection consists of three sizes of vases. It is based on a new kind of modular glass blowing mold developed by Jokinen and Konu. The Multi series combines artistic and industrial perspectives in the production of glass objects.
DESIGN PROCESS & PRODUCTION
In the traditional form creation process for glass objects, a single mold is required for manufacturing the desired form. The modular mold, instead, enables countless shapes produced with one mold, which makes the form creation process different from the usual. We were able to play with the order of the modular pieces to create various forms with glass objects.
The modular mold can be used to produce unlimited amounts of forms by stacking the mold layers in different order. The products are made in co-operation with professional glassblowers. It is exceptional that modularity thinking is part of the manufacturing process.
Multi vases are handmade by skilled glass artisans. This kind of quality for a glass object cannot be achieved with the help of machine production, but the only way is to make it by mouth-blowing, which is the result of years of training and experience.
Multi Vases come in stylish packaging, so they are easy to transport or give as a gift. In our packaging and shipping materials we use only fiber based material that is 100% recyclable.
