Description

This sculptural drink-ware set is colorful, naive, and will decorate our tables, while also being functional.

The “Joyful Glassware” collection reflects the designer’s need to surround herself with more colorful materials and shapes and to work with therapeutic methods that bring her joy in the design process.

While being isolated at home, drinking every day from the same glass or eating from the same plate became monotonous, and designer Irina Flore felt the need to explore the shapes of these everyday objects she was surrounded by. Flore enjoys playing with materials and starting to work on something without planning the resulting object. This process is very different than her everyday design process, where she starts from an idea or a notion of what the final product has to be. In this case, she started playing with paper and made collages, imagining how her everyday objects should look if she wanted them to bring a little bit of joy into her home.

Exceptional artisans handcraft the “Joyful Glassware” collection in Istanbul, Turkey. Gray Awards 2021 winning project.
The collection won the 2021 Gray Awards and has been featured in design magazines such as Sight Unseen, AD France, Gray Magazine, and Luxe Interiors+Design.

About the designer


Irina Flore

Irina\'s design practice focuses on functional art -everyday objects. The statement pieces that Irina likes to design are objects that tell a story. Each design has an elaborated process with research on material, form, and function. The fabrication and the process is essential aspect of the narrative of her designs. She collaborates with artisans, and this is a significant part of her practice because she grew up in a family of craftspeople in a small town in Romania. Her design practice focuses on advanced technologies but also on old traditions and crafts.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
