why this product

The traditional bottle glass vase, typically made from ceramic or blown glass, has been updated and modernized in this brass version designed in Italy and made in Sweden. Award winning designer Paolo Dell’Elce was inspired by the many still life paintings of Italian artist Giorgio Morandi, whose unassuming compositions in muted tones expertly captured balance and proportion. The vases are produced in a brass foundry that was founded in 1607 by the King of Sweden. Each vase is formed through a process called metal spinning. Large sheets of brass are spun at high speed, then worked and shaped into the final design. 

use & care

Use a mild metal polish and a soft cloth. Avoid water droplets on the external surface of the vase. Do not place on delicate surfaces without a tray or other protective barrier underneath the vase.

production & design

Founded in 1607 by King Charles IX of Sweden, Skultuna brass foundry has been in operation for over 400 years in the same location. The company is named after its strategic headquarters in the municipality of Skultuna—about 75 miles west of Stockholm and famous for some of the oldest mines in the country—not far from copper mines (brass is formed from copper and zinc) and charcoal and water power. The foundry’s first products in the 17th-century were large chandeliers. Today, the company continues to polish and mount chandeliers, while also working with some of the most renowned contemporary product designers.
