These storage containers are part of the “Extraordinary Objects” collection and were presented in the Nationale Art Gallery in Portland, Oregon. The jars are made from handblown glass and the lids are 3D printed in multi-jet fusion material.
The “Extraordinary Objects” collection is the result of research work on form and function while questioning our relationship and interaction with everyday objects. These results are not ordinary shapes, but they are ordinary through their function and they have to be understood before being used.
Each collection is sculptural and has a different material and fabrication method. For this project, designer Irina Flore explored various techniques and materials, from handcrafted glass to laser-cutting metal and 3D printed ceramics. Flore intends to make viewers curious, while inviting them to analyze, question, and interact with these sculptures differently and try to understand their functions.
Available in two sizes (small: 7.6×7.6×17.8 / large: 12.7×12.7×17.8) and four colours (Blood Red / Blue / Orange / Purple).
