ruutu 5.5 inch tall vase

ruutu 5.5 inch tall vase

Design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2015
Mouth blown glass
Made by iittala

The fluidity and vibrant feel of mouth blown glass creates the delicate character for the new Iittala vase, Ruutu. When collected and combined, they make small seamless installations where both the strength and the delicate nature of the glass come alive. Ruutu might be simple in shape, but it takes the most skilled craftsmen in the glass factory to produce. Designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, each vase has the designers name engraved on the base.

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are brothers and designer based in Paris. They have been working together for 15 years, bonded by diligence and challenged by their distinct personalities. They have collaborated with key players in the design industry such as Vitra, Magis, Cappellini, Hay and more.

Each Ruutu vase is unique - mouth blown into a steel mold and polished by hand. Designer engraving on the bottom of each vase. The difficult shape and intensive colors of the Ruutu vases require very skillful craftsmen to work during 24 hour production process of one vase. It takes 7 craftsmen to blow one vase. The fluidity of mouth blown glass and the vibrant quality of the flat surfaces create an elegant combination with the geometric shape. Ruutu vases are offered in various size & color options.

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.

What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, now celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people's everyday lives. Iittala believes objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that allows for individual use and expression. The progressive philosophy of design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspires to keep Iittala forever relevant.
