Dan Yeffet stacks brass, marble and glass into Element vase

Maison&Objet 2015: a hand-blown glass vessel with a brass cuff perches on the corner of a black marble cube to form Israeli designer Dan Yeffet's Elements vase (+ slideshow).

The main body of the container is hand-blown glass in the shape of a simple bottle with its neck removed.

Using computer numerically controlled (CNC) technology, the base of the vase is cut from black marble into a cube with a void in the shape of the base of the bottle in one corner.

A hand-formed brass cuff sits over the top of the bottle, creating a decorative and functional object – part of Dan Yeffet's Collection Particuliere.

"The concept of Collection Particuliere is around working with noble and raw materials," he told Dezeen. "The idea of using prime material, almost in its raw stage has always intrigued me – then to position them on top of one another, each with its own role coming together into an archetypal structure with a use."

"The form of each element was inspired by the raw materials, the classic way we perceive them, and for each one the way I perceived it," he added.

Yeffet hopes people will form a connection with the vase, whether they use it decoratively or for its intended purpose.

"My objects in general are always made to hit emotions – simple and yet strong," he said. "The most important thing is to enjoy what we purchase, whether it's as an object to look at or with the use it was meant to have as a vase."

Elements launched at Maison&Objet in January 2015, alongside Sumo, a wooden side table with a marble tabletop and Embedded, a fruit bowl made from a geometric brass or stainless steel net on a marble base.

Yeffet's previous designs include a floor lamp with a hand-blown glass top and a marble base.
