If there's one thing that's undeniable, it's our overwhelming love and appreciation for homewares. Here at RUSSH, the team is constantly on the hunt for new and unique pieces to decorate our spaces with. From artwork to candles that double as table centrepieces and everything in between – we don't discriminate. The only thing we might love more is when our homeware pieces of choice happen to also be sustainably produced and created. Then, throw one of our favourite fashion brands in the mix and it's a creative match in heaven. Such magic takes its form in the latest release from Danish cult-brand GANNI, who has designed its own collection of vases.
Fans of the brand will be familiar with GANNI Kiosk; and for its latest instalment, GANNI has teamed up with Copenhagen-based sustainable 3D printing studio, ninetyoneninetytwo. The collaboration utilises recycled plastic sourced from drinking bottles and post-consumer medical packaging waste to create a collection of unique vases.
The recycled plastic used for the vases is supplied by award-winning social enterprise, ReFlow. The company is a collaborative network of recyclers and designers who tackle plastic pollution, supporting local communities around the world.
There are five vase designs in total to choose from in the GANNI collection. Each one possesses a slightly sheer, matte white finish and features a bespoke pattern inspired by Ancient Greek pottery that secretly spells out the brand's name.
Speaking on their collaboration with GANNI, Zeyu Rong & Weibo Sun, co-founders of ninetyoneninetytwo explained; “From the very beginning, we have set the tone to only work with recycled material. As a design company, we need to take responsibility for making things better for the environment and people.”
In an Instagram post on the brand's GANNI Lab account, the sustainable Copenhagen-based brand mentioned that they are wanting to continue facilitating GANNI Kiosk as a design lab; "a place where we’re able to experiment with responsible and innovative methods, through collaboration with artists and visionaries."
