Moooi Egg Vase
Posted: 19 July 2011
Always ahead of the design game, Moooi has released another unique item that is guaranteed to be a conversation-starter. Their unusual Egg Vase, designed by Marcel Wanders for Moooi in the Netherlands, puts a playful spin on the concept of a traditional vase. Available in three different sizes, who would've guessed how these creations came to be? They were in fact the result of stuffing latex rubber condoms with hard-boiled eggs. Now that's what we call innovative! With the Dutch word for "beautiful" being "mooi", it is hardly a surprise that their items are so eye-catching. Moooi is known for its contemporary lighting and accessories, and moreso for its often peculiar and thought-provoking designs. Also from Moooi's pool of talented designers are Edward van Vliet, Bertjan Pot, Job Smeets, Jurgen Bey and Maarten Baas. Many Moooi creations have already been showcased as part of museum collections, including at the MoMA New York. See more inspiring Moooi designs here. The refreshing Egg Ceramic Vase by Moooi retails at R1750 and is available locally from Crema Design. You can contact Crema on 021-434-0661 for further details.
