Here's a little text from the designers:


Natural Indigo

The Inspiration for this series of 19 vases, accessories and lights derives from a phenomenon we have noticed in Paris and London.

In the city center a lot of street furniture, like junction boxes, lamp posts and bollards are covered with a extraordinary stucco-like coating.

We instantly liked the visual and haptic quality and later found out, that it was a special anti-fly-poster-coating to prevent people from putting stickers and posters everywhere.

We did some experiments with the coating and transfered it to design.

    vase and clock are ok, everything else looks disgusting.
    maybe if you like filling your house with avant garde shock pieces that's a good thing, but not for me.

    But the anti flyposter coating is not very attractive! Why would you want to cover household items like a lamp and vases with it?
