MENU ECHASSE VASE SMALL
Designed for Menu by Theresa Arns, the Échasse Vase combines the classic elegance of a traditional glass vase with a playful, light expression. The word échasse is French for stilts – and this round-bottomed vase is anchored to the table by four slender legs that resemble stilts. The vase takes inspiration from test tubes in laboratories, and like the original the Échasse has a classic drop-like shape, constructed from coloured glass that gives the vase a unique expression. Échasse is available in small, medium and large.
Dimensions: H 28 cm, diameter 10/15 cm. Materials: glass, brass.
About the designer:
Studio Theresa Rand is based in Copenhagen and is working on furniture and interior design related projects. The focus of the studio's work is on the use of natural, authentic and lasting materials and the way in which they are combined. Creating functional but poetic furniture with a story to tell, as well as spaces with a warm atmosphere for the people living and being in them. Theresa’s thinking is very intuitive – "Although functionality is very important, too, the atmosphere, which furniture and objects create and the impact, which they have on a space and on people using this space is crucial."
Originally, Theresa Rand studied languages at the University of Cologne and graduated in 2005. Her later career was followed by architecture studies at the Peter Behrens School of Architecture in Düsseldorf, in Germany. Afterwards, Theresa Rand graduated with a concentration in a Master of Arts in Architecture & Furniture Design at the Royal Academy of Arts, in Denmark. Alongside her studies, Theresa Rand worked as freelance with namely design offices, like Norm Architects or Space Copenhagen. That was when her first introductory pieces for MENU were sketched.
