Dutch product design graduate Robin van Hontem has designed a series of vases inspired by the movement of a spinning top.
The series includes five vases representing snapshots of the top's deceleration.
They are made of nylon using a rapid prototyping process.
Van Hontem completed the project while studying at the Academy of fine Arts in Maastricht, the Netherlands.
Here's a little text from van Hotem:
Robin van Hontem, a Dutch Product Design graduate, made the collection "Dancing Vases" for his graduation project. The vases are inspired by playing with a spinning top. A spinning top keeps itself standing by turning around. The "Dancing Vases" are snapshots of these movements.
The collection consists of 5 different vases, 5 different moments in the movement. From turning fast, to loosing speed and in the end dropping down.
These small vases, around 9 cm high, are made using Selective Laser Sintering. The used material is Nylon.
