Alba Vase by Design House Stockholm
The boundary between an art object and something for domestic use is not always obvious and in Anna Kraitz’s products it is often almost totally eradicated. Belts are a recurring detail in her designs, together with plaits and buttons: “Together they form a symbol of me myself, a sort of self-portrait. But I also use the belt as a symbol for gathering together and defining the shapeless and rapidly changing world that we live in at the moment.” The ‘Alba’ vase is based on a larger model that Anna produced for an exhibition: a porcelain vase with a vaguely human form with its waist tied in by a leather belt. A detail that suffices to transform an everyday object into something personal and unique. Alba will be available in white or celadon porcelain.
Vase in porcelain: dishwasher safe. Leather belt with metal buckle: do not wash.
