Ikebana Medulla

‘IkebanaMedulla’ by Benjamin Graindorge is the result of shi six-months residence at the villa Kujoyama where he transformed his line sketches into a real vase.

“When I began designing the IkebanaMedulla vases two things were foremost in my mind. The first was practical – design a vase that would be inhabited even when there were no flowers in it. The second was to think out a project whose form would bring together complete calm with a wild – almost animal – tension. I’m exploring the idea of natural savagery, and the IkebanaMedulla vases are my first attempt at a resolution.” — Benjamin Graindorge

From 24 to 28 March 2010 the ‘IkebanaMedulla’ vase will be represented by YMER&MALTA gallery at the Pavillon des Arts et du Design 2010. Find more information at Duende
