Venturi Pear White Vase, Murano Glass and Metal by Lara Bohinc, in Stock

About

Lara Bohinc’s collection is inspired by her encounters with Venice. Metal frames hold Bohinc’s Murano glass vases and are reminiscent of the foundations upon which Venice was built: the metal is strong, rigid and geometric; the glass likes water, being fluid, organic and irrepressible. This playful twist on the foundations of Venice is the inspiration behind this collection, a marriage of opposites is also found in the Hotel Bauer’s modern and neogothic architecture, in seamless union in spite of their different architectural movements. And like Venice, The Bauer is hosting to a set of dichotomies, the embodiment of contradictions and geometry with the organic, a theme that Bohinc expresses in this collection. Venice is synonymous with water and glass is the perfect material to represent this, also being one of the city’s most celebrated materials and traditions. The voluptuous forms in this body of work are blown from within a metal cage and this style also features in traditional Venetian sculptural glass. Bohinc has created the Venturi collection in ruby red, rose, sapphire, white filigrana glass, lilac and petrol blue with the metal frames glazed in bronze. The process of handblown glass forms unique, organic pieces and Bohinc oversaw their production at Murano’s artisanal workshop Massimiliano Schiavo Art team. Each vase is handmade in Venice from Murano glass in a small artisanal workshop. All Venturi vases are unique pieces therefore the size and color may vary. Dimensions: Height 30 cm Base 12 cm x 12 cm Diameter 16 cm Opening 4 cm.

About The Maker

Bohinc Studio

View Profile
Lara Bohinc MBE studied Industrial Design at the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts, followed by Metalwork and Jewellery at Royal College of Art London (MA). After graduation, she won British Fashion Council’s New Generation Award and launched her own studio. She was design consultant for many luxury brands, amongst them Montblanc, Gucci and most notably Cartier, a position she held for over a decade. A mark of her work is versatility. A passionate believer in the universality of good design, she made the most of the opportunities to bridge the divide between jewellery, objects and furniture. Bohinc’s ability to create work of everlasting beauty is rooted in her familiarity with industrial processes. While retaining a deep respect for the traditional principles of her craft, she has also drawn on her knowledge of industrial techniques, fusing modernity of style with function to achieve a contemporary elegance. The same principles apply in all of her designs – use of the finest materials, and an obsession with deconstruction and reconfiguration of pure geometric form. Overall, Bohinc’s signature style is a mix of contradictions: bold yet light, graphic yet fluid, angular yet feminine. Her first furniture piece was the Solaris Kinetic Table, made in collaboration with stone experts Lapicida for Wallpaper “Handmade” exhibition in 2014. The success of this piece resulted in two further collections of marble furniture and interior accessories.
