The production of Vannfall
The sculptural qualities of our objects lead more often than not to complex manufacturing techniques. We make our collection wherever the traditional craft techniques are best kept alive and wherever the required specialized competence is found.
Vannfall is manufactured in China.
Nedre Foss on how Vannfall fits our brand
It is truly inspiring to work with Jin Kuramoto and to have his interpretation of sculptural utility: «Bruksskulptur».
The initial master model of Vannfall was hand made in Jin’s studio, and all of his intuitive, haptic decisions are captured in the final product.
Through the process of 3D-scanning the selected model and subsequently translating this object into glass, the original constructive partitions and language of the process were somewhat obscured and took on additional meaning.
To us, Vannfall mimics something in motion – depending on the colour, it is like water running or like a creature organically and slowly growing into shape.
Besides being a useful and beautiful object, Vannfall also provides a peak into the some of the key but sometimes hidden issues of the design process itself: how to generate, reflect on and refine a shape in a mock-up material and also the relation between the intention of a process and the final result.
