"Vase & amp; Leute" is both mud and luminaire. Directed blown glass by German designer Miriam Aust DUA for the manufacturer, the object-like utensils laboratory reveals an artificial nature, studied or preserved, as in a test tube.
On this project, Miriam Aust states:
"In most cases a plant is cultivated in a flowerpot, its stature is controlled and the space permitted. The draft is sounding out possible barriers and analysing how much a plant can be influenced, but still remain "natural". A glass plant light is the result of exceptional combinations and unusual materials. The nature is presented artifcially, the living being used as material and laboratory aesthetics is brought into the living room."
