Inspired by the spiraling movement of air, often seen through smoke or mist, the new Aer Vase by Gabriel Tan for MENU brings sculptural appeal to surfaces. Taking its name from the Latin word for air or vapour, the vase’s asymmetrical silhouette undulates in liquid-like waves to bring a tactile, almost ethereal quality to the glass. Offered in two sizes, high or low, the sculptural design is ideal paired in twos to display flowers or branches, yet looks equally beautiful as a standalone sculpture.
The tactile surface of the rippled glass vase, offered in two sizes, is made during a precision process whereby molten glass is mouth-blown into a double cavity tool that reveals the complex three-dimensional shape. The finished design displays different visual characteristics depending on the viewing angle. Allowing for the arrangement of flowers and branches in two bunches instead of one within the same vessel, Aer becomes more than simply a vase: it is a sculptural object, also when not in use. When placed close to natural light–on a window sill or table top–it takes on an ethereal feel, where reflections and refractions of light bring the design and the surface on which it stands to life.
