A WORK OF ART IN LIMITED EDITION
Toy is more than a vase, it is a work of art in limited edition. For each color version, only 50 numbered pieces are produced.
Toy is a sculptural vase in blown glass with hand painted decors. The vase is made of two pieces whose painted lines interact, creating color combinations, distortions, patterns and reflections on the vase.
Guillaume Delvigne is a French designer of the Nouvelle Vague. He worked for Marc Newson before he created his own studio in 2011 and applied his talents to fields as diverse as cooking appliances for Tefal, vases for Hermès, or conceptual design exhibited in the best Parisian galleries. His creations share a soft and subtle approach of materials.
