A new addition to the Échasse series by Theresa Arns for Menu,
Échasse Bowl combines the elegance of a traditional glass bowl with a playful and light expression, created by four slender brass legs that elevate it into the air. The word échasse is French for “stilts” – and that is precisely the effect, as if the bowl walks on stilts. Made from smoked glass, Échasse Bowl typifies rising-star German designer Theresa’s philosophy to make functional yet poetic design, using long-lasting, natural materials.
Born in Germany, Theresa Arns graduated in 2013 from The Royal Danish Academy of Arts. As a student in Copenhagen she fell in love with the city and the Danish tradition in furniture design: ‘My plan was to go to Berlin after my studies, but I find Copenhagen very inspiring, so I stayed.’
Swiftly establishing a reputation as a design talent to watch, Theresa makes practical furniture, to be used every day, with soul: “I think I design in a quite ‘German’ way. I am very pragmatic, but I also think it’s important that the objects that we surround ourselves with have warmth and poetry.”
