Ruutu Vase by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
Ruutu is a collection of glass vases that complements the Iittala range of mouth-blown vases. It was created Ruutu by the famous designer brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.
The flowing, mouth-blown glass and the luminous quality of the flat surface create an elegant combination with the geometric form. The simple contours and beautiful colours naturally suggest arranging the vases in groups.
Ruutu may have a simple form, but that is precisely why it takes extremely experienced glassblowers who are masters of their craft to produce it.
"The Ruutu vase is a project born from an ordinary geometric shape. It can be used on its own, but it becomes a real collection when its owner combines it at will to create a surprising kaleidoscope of colours, heights and sizes, a landscape of infinite variations.
Through the colour combinations we want to Iittala show the great colour program of while at the same time entrusting the customer with the creative process. He is tempted to take several modules in order to create his very own composition. This approach is closely linked to our work - just like the shape of a rhombus, which we have used before". Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec explain their work on the project for the Finnish manufacturer Iittala .
The Ruutu vases are available in two sizes 115 mm and 205 mm with different heights and in different colours.
