Kappa // Vase
Designed by Mimmi Blomqvist, Kappa combines sustainable precision and contemporary design. The vases are mouth-blown in a mold from recycled glass and named for the “bubble” that rises out over the edge of the object during the production process. The different pigments in the used shards result in varying shades of blue and gray. The unique variations in color and small bubbles that may emerge while transforming recycled glass into a new object make each vase one of a kind.
“I’ve always been a creative person, but the idea of designing furniture and objects has gained momentum over time. In my first class at the University of Arts, Crafts and Design, we were going to blow glass in a mold. I was going to make a drinking glass, but instead of cutting off the cap, I decided to leave it on. It was beautiful, wonderful, and inviting. And it also provided some contrast to the understated shape. I developed the idea further with an oversized cap. It’s a matter of course to work with circular raw materials these days. That’s why the vase is produced using excess glass from the glassworks. The result is a contemporary design object, where my intention has been to leave a mark on the present.”
