Entry Description: Curva vases were designed with the intent of not being some more vases that are hidden when not used with flowers, but as pieces of design that can be used in different ways according to the user creativity such as decorative items, pencil storage or even as food containers. Indeed, with or without flowers and always sensual, the broad color range of the Curva Vase collection allows the users to creates either energetic or calm and inspiring feelings, blending in all environments. Consisting in 3 vases with different shapes and aesthetical feeling, the user may choose to have them all as a family of items or separately according to the environment. The sensual curved body of the Curva Vase Collection was inspired by Oscar Niemeyer's quote: "It is not the right angle that attracts me, nor the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. What attracts me is the free and sensual curve the curve that I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuous course of its rivers, in the body of the beloved woman." Colors: orange, light blue, red, yellow, magenta, green. Body colors: matte black, matte white. Size: 25 cm height, 8 cm radius (average).
