Winner of the Premier prix du Concours Cinna 2018, Tasso is
a family of decorative vases which revisits the process of wood
lathing. Their uniqueness springs from the fact that they are composed
of solid wood blocks, partially finished by hand. Two sections
are therefore made: one is sculpted, turned and finely chiselled,
whilst the other is left untreated, like a raw base, bearing
witness to the object’s origins.
The Tasso vases, with their contrasting shapes, speak of the multiple
possibilities offered by the material ‘wood’.
Each size is in a different finish:
– Large : solid walnut with black interior
– Medium: black ash with natural interior
– Small: black ash with black interior
Items are made from blocks of solid wood which are glued
together and dried before the two sections (like the four quarters
of an orange) are hollowed out and the interior is finished before
the vases are finally assembled. Each piece is then hand-finished and packaged with care.
Important : the vases is decorative and should only be used with
dried arrangements. Made in Portugal.
