The combinatorial Bloomingbless vase by Benjamin Graindorge for Cinna has been available since September in the French editor’s showrooms. A set of 3 pieces to compose that the designer aspired to be as simple and easy as possible, envisaged for a wide public with the Cinna standard of quality. “Bloomingbless is a vase to be composed like a bouquet, made from a play on transparency, it is not really known if there are 1, 2 or 3 objects. It is also a vase which offers life; it can hold small and large bouquets, where space and load can alternate, like calligraphy plays with spaces between the blank page and the ink.“
Bloomingbless is a set comprising two hand blown blue glass vases (1 vase H23 Ø 13 and 1 oval vase H18 W16 L13) and a bottomless ring surrounding the two vases (H21.5 W31.5 L15.5).
Total dimensions of the ensemble: Length: 315, Height: 230, Width: 155
