The Marchigüe (1) vases collection seeks simplicity and purity of design through a conceptual exercise on the interaction and synthesis between form (2), shape and decoration.
A pair of two- dimensional shapes, a circle and a hexagon, are linked together to form (3)
the raw material, concrete, into a finely crafted object.
The design process, clearly visible on the surface of the vases, thus becomes the only decorative element of these monochromatic volumes.
