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.
