JUURI by Sarah Bottger
One divided by eight equals six - not a matter of arithmetic but of combining shapes! Inspired by the manufacturing process of glass, all components of this series derive from the same basic form. But through eight well positioned cuts they become six different vessels. The combination of glass and flexible plastic gives the objects their functional qualities while both materials have their own characteristics. The glass is transparent, fragile, shows reflections and gives the impression of changing its colour once it is filled. In contrast, the plastic is flexible, matte, robust and provides the necessary properties to make the object work well. By using a flexible ring and two fitted plastic lids the forms can be combined and closed easily. The vessels are versatile not only by their shapes but also by their colours and offer a variety of applications within different contexts left to the single user.
