This Vase Découpage collection, created by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, is available in three different designs: Barre, Disque and Feuille. Each piece consists of a cast cylindrical vessel combined with a set of abstract slabs or bars made of clay, which can be attached or placed inside the vase. Each of the elements is individually hand-dipped in a variety of different colour glazes, which gives these sculptural pieces a distinctly handcrafted appearance. When assembled together, they create poetic compositions that look different from every angle: whimsical, ironic and unconventional. These geometric arrangements form a fragile balance as contrasting colours and layers converge to yield a new harmony.

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, born 1971 and 1976, respectively, in Quimper, France, studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. Ronan began independent design work immediately after completing his studies, while his brother, who was still in school, assisted him.
Since 1999 both brothers have worked together as joint partners in their own Paris-based design studio. Their work ranges from small utilitarian objects to architectural projects. In addition to the design of domestic and office furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewellery and diverse home accessories, a primary focus of their work is the design and organisation of interior space.
One of their most unconventional designs, Algue (2004), was created in this context. The collaboration between the Bouroullec brothers and Vitra began with the office furniture system Joyn, which was developed between 2000 and 2002 and continues to be expanded and refined. Along with Jasper Morrison, Hella Jongerius, and Antonio Citterio, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have made major contributions to the steadily growing Vitra Home Collection.
