About the work
Square Vase is a porcelain vase designed from just a simple square. From bottom to top the square varies in size and position relative to the former. With a computerprogram the squares are connected. Square Vase seems a bit jazzy and impulsive, but in fact it is symmetrical and shaped according to a strict program. Through its dynamic shape however it is hard to lay your hands on the genesis of it all. From every angle the vase is moving into a different shape, almost into another dimension.
Available in unglazed and gloss glazing porcelain.
Make sure you to indicate your choice of glazing!
About the artist
Buro Bruno is a design firm, started by Bruno van Hooijdonk in 1998. After his studies at ARTEZ in Arnhem the Netherlands, Bruno immediately went off designing independently, uncompromising and scouring onto the outskirts of art and design.
Bruno transforms flat surfaces into a spatial design. More important is the transition from one dimension to another and not so much the start or end point. He actually transfigures the flat shape (or parts of it) into motion, until it is what it should be. Due to the dynamics of the process, the movement in the design continues to exist and creates an unambiguous and non-static end product.
