Inspired by Japanese bamboo, Anna Perugini
created a glass vase collection using the traditional lampworking technique. The colorful set consists of four vases of different heights and sizes that can be overturned and used at both ends depending on the needs.
Glass Vases That Can Be Filled at Both Ends
Group the vases of this bamboo-inspired collection for a colorful and playful display, or use them individually with a changing styling of flowers or plants at one of the useable sides of the vase. Anna envisioned the vases to create different arrangements according to everyone's taste.
The collection takes reference from the jointed stems of Asian bamboo trees. While traveling through Japan, Perugini found inspiration for the vases in a local bamboo grove. Anna reflects the role of design in everyday life and translated her impressed sighting of the high bamboo trees in her new glassworks collection for Ichendorf.

With two sections in each vase, they can hold flowers or small plants. One section is shallower than the other and can be filled with flowers, greens, or candles of your liking.
