Nuage Vase

nuage vase

nuage vase

Design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2016
Anodized aluminum, rubber stoppers
Made by Vitra

The shape of the Nuage vases made its first appearance in the oeuvre of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec in 2002. Reminiscent of a cloud, it was originally produced as a plastic shelf module that can be grouped into clusters or large-scale configurations. Eight tubular cavities pierce the flat surfaces of the modular element while also defining the form's outer contours. Over the years, the Bouroullec brothers have varied this shape and repeatedly incorporated it in their graphic work.

For the Nuage vase, the designers executed the cloud motif in extruded aluminum profiles of varying lengths. The cavities in the basic form are now positioned upright, dividing the vase into eight individual tubes that can be used for the artful arrangement of flowers and grasses. The undulating surfaces, with an anodized finish in various colors, produce an attractive interplay of light and shadow. Thanks to their precise outer contours, the vases can be fitted together to create entire 'cloud formations'.

Bros Bouroullec

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (b. 1971 and 1976) are a team of two brothers from the Brittany region in Northwest France. They began working together in 1999 and maintain a constant collaborative dialogue that incorporates each personality, and strikes a balance within their mutual quest for diligence and fineness. The brothers work with numerous manufacturers, such as Vitra and Cappellini. Their partnership with Vitra in 2002 has brought about perhaps their most prolific line of work, including the Joyn office system, and notable pieces like the Algues, the Alcove Sofa, the Worknest, the Slow Chair, the Vegetal and L’Oiseau. The brothers Bouroullec continue their vegetation-inspired work of natural and organic shapes and are recognized with various awards, in permanent collections, and in exhibitions all over the world.

Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. Following in the tradition of Charles & Ray Eames, who have influenced Vitra’s approach to sustainability in many ways, product longevity is central to the company’s contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection.
