Since the industrial revolution that design have been marked by some iconic innovations such as the forms from Bauhaus, or the Ghost chair from Philippe Starck… all of them bringing something original and ground breaking. Today we can surely asure you that Vanessa Mitrani will be one of those. She is a designer on the cutting edge of modern glass blowing bringing the glass production to a whole new level. We could compare Vanessa to Alvar Aalto and his iconic glass vase bringuing a new life to a tecnique that has been oppressed by the industrialism. In these case using metal braces that constrict the forms to create desirable and unique vessels. Some are in geometric cages while others look like they have been hurriedly wrapped in wire frames. The glass is blown inside these forms and pushes against the constraints and balloons out into open space as we can see it.
Traditional silhouettes have been transformed into new shapes that look different from every angle.Her success is unquestionable since all these fancy vessels have been produced for prestigious customers such as Roche Bobois, Salviati, Neiman Marcus, l’Occitane en Provence, Contran Shop, Ligne Roset and Armani. These objects can be seen in some international fairs or without the same impact in the oficial website of the designer. – www.vanessamitrani.com
With these simple and strange forms I’m sure Vanessa will continue to amase us and bring us some inovations at all levels.
